A 2-0 win over Staines Town saw Kings Langley extend their resurgent form to a third game on Tuesday.

The game was decided in the final 15 minutes as Luke Wade-Slater broke the deadlock before Rene Howe completed the scoring at the death.

Having endured a torrid start to the season, Kings’ latest victory has taken them up to 14th in the Southern League Premier Division table after 14 games this season.

Kings had the better of the first half and created a number of chances, most notably when Mitchell Weiss and Stevie Ward both fired just off target.

The ever-busy Weiss then saw a delightfully-weighted lob come back off the post after leaving the Staines keeper rooted to the spot.

Town had far more influence on the game in the second period as they came out looking to get on the front foot.

They struggled to create clear-cut chances though, and adverse weather conditions saw the game descend into a battle which lent little to the idea of free-flowing football.

Weiss remained Kings’ most threatening outlet and a smart through ball from Howe left him one-on-one but he was thwarted by the Staines keeper.

The missed chance was typical of a run of form which has seen Weiss struggle in front of goal in recent weeks, but he remained positive despite the latest setback.

He would play a vital role in the go-ahead goal as he chased down his own rebound and played a perfect cross to Wade-Slater,who headed home at the back post.

The goal took most of the fight out of the home side, but at 1-0 Staines remained firmly in the game.

Kings made sure of the points with a minute of normal time left when Howe took matters into his own hands to make it 2-0.

With the ball in the corner, the Kings man looked happy to see time out but instead skipped past a challenge and drove towards the box.

Howe then beat another challenge and found the net from the most acute of angles with a smart finish.

The victory came off the back off arguably Kings’ best performance of the season as they beat leaders Weymouth 2-1 on Saturday through Stevie Ward and Wade-Slater.

In the Bostik League South Central, Northwood took on Hertford Town at home and played out a 1-1 draw.

The result would have been a slight disappointment for Wood as they conceded an equaliser 12 minutes from time to squander two points.

They were ahead with only 14 minutes on the clock when Andrew Ofosu marked his first outing for the club with a debut goal.

It was simple strike as Ofosu turned in after Town keeper Charlie Mann failed to hold Kewcu Conrad-Lucen’s powerful drive.

Wood thought they had sealed the points in the 75th minute when Leigh Stevens reacted to a rebound from Kyran Worrell’s shot but was denied a goal by the offside flag.

Just three minutes later the moment took on even greater significance as Hertford levelled to snatch a point.

It could have got worse for Wood with three minutes left to play when Hertford came forward one last time and struck the post.

Northwood face a Chipstead side a point and a place below them in the league on Saturday.
