Two fine first half goals were enough to get the Beavers back to winning ways tonight - and stretch our unbeaten run to eight league games.

It may not have been the performance of the season but an excellent first 45 minutes did the damage at the Beveree.

There was a blow before the game when Billy Jefferys withdrew with 20 minutes until kick-off. The management replaced the defender with a forward - Ben Harris started as Stuart Lake slotted in at the back.

Hampton went ahead against out-of-form Finchley with a quarter of a hour gone. Charlie Moone's sumptuous half-volley was his 31st goal in all competitions this season. It set the team on their way.

It was 2-0 after 33 minutes, Lake thrashing home with style after a corner wasn't cleared to double our lead.

Both side had good second-half chances, with Dave Tarpey wasting the best of them for the hosts but it didn't matter in the end as the Beavers held firm at the other end with Rodney producing two fine saves late...

Hampton's form of late may be fantastic whilst Wingate & Finchley are going through somewhat of a wobble - but the Beavers have been urged to keep their focus ahead of tonight's fixture.

Football is back at the Beveree this evening with a visit from Daniel Nielsen's out-of-form side.

The home fans will be hoping for more of what they saw last time - a brilliant 4-0 win over Carshalton, picture here.

In fact Hampton haven't lost since November's defeat to Grays, but it's currently a different story at the Harry Abrahams Stadium.

Wingate have one only won once in over three months in the Ryman Premier, with six defeats in their last seven game outings. They slipped to 19th place after the weekend's home defeat to Leiston – just two points above the drop zone.

Hampton are on a seven-match unbeaten run in the league, thanks to Saturday's late heroics at Dulwich Hamlet.

But joint manager Darren Powell says just because the form is contrasting, there is no excuse for...

Simmonds and Hickey to miss out as Beavers take on Wingate & Finchley

Hampton & Richmond Borough midfielder Tom Hickey

Hampton & Richmond Borough will be without midfielders Bradley Simmonds and Tom Hickey for tonight's home game against Wingate & Finchley.

Simmonds will today see a specialist and have a cast put on after fracturing his ankle during Saturday's 2-2 draw at Dulwich Hamlet.

Hickey, meanwhile, will today be having his nose re-set after breaking it in the previous weekend's win at Carshalton. Both players are expected to be sidelined for up to six weeks.

Hampton will be looking to extend their unbeaten run stretching back to the start of December, which has seen them climb for 11 in the Ryman Premier table.

The Beavers won 2-1 at the Harry Abrahams Stadium back in September, thanks to two goals in as many first half minutes from Charlie Moone. The north London side are 19 in the...
