Hendon were beaten 3-2 by Enfield Town this afternoon despite putting in their best performance of the season at a very wet QEII Stadium. However, a last minute penalty converted by Liam Hope, who was then sent off for a second caution in the aftermath, consigned the Greens to a fourth consecutive defeat.
Adam Wallace had put the home side ahead in the second minute, but the rest of the opening period belonged to the Greens and they deservedly equalised through Dave Diedhiou.
Hope restored the lead with a superb free kick early in the second half, only for Diedhiou to equalise again shortly afterwards. Diedhiou had a third goal struck off for offside, as the Greens searched for a winner, but they were stung by the late penalty award for an offence spotted by the assistant referee.
