In contrast to Saturday's game at Poole, this time a late equaliser salvaged a point for Hendon as they preserved their unbeaten start to the new season at Beaconsfield Town.

Elliott Buchanan gave the Rams an early lead before William Dupray equalised with a bullet header for his first goal of the season. Beaconsfield keeper Sam Beasant then made a superb double save to deny Niko Muir and Joe White before James Dobson curled a brilliant free kick home from fully 30 yards to give the hosts the half-time advantage.

Beaconsfield's ill-discipline that saw them pick up five first-half bookings, almost all for dissent, then saw Master Sankoh pick up his second of the night five minutes after the break for motioning the referee to show a yellow card to Blaise Riley-Snow.

Despite heavy Hendon pressure, the home side retained their shape impressively, denying Hendon many clear-cut chances until sub Florian Endouvo-Ada headed across goal for Dave Diedhiou to tap in from close range and grab a share of the spoils.
