Saturday 29th October 2011
Kingstonian 2-2 Wingate & Finchley
Kingstonian came back from a two goal deficit to share the points with Wingate & Finchley.

Former K Ahmed Rifat took advantage of an error to open the scoring for the visitors with ten minutes gone, before Tony Burke's 27th minute free kick made it two-nil.

Having seen a super Bobby Traynor effort denied by the woodwork in the first half, Sam Clayton went about scoring a wonderful goal in the 68th minute. A couple of minutes later Clayton was brought down by Jordan Fowler - snet off for a second bookable offence - and from the resultant free kick Tom Bird fired in the equaliser.

Having seen a second penalty shout waved away K's almost grabbed a winner in stoppage time, though substitute Allan Tait's header was well saved at the near post.

Full details of the match are now available.

The hosts threatened to make it a nervy ending when pulling one back with just over ten minutes remaining, but pressure from Chaaban at the other end saw them concede an own goal shortly after to make it three-one.
