THURROCK came from behind twice to claim an impressive 4-2 win at Wingate & Finchley.

Lewwis Spence and Jordan Clark were both at the double to ensure the victory despite James Goode’s dismissal midway through the second half.

The hosts took the lead inside nine minutes as Layne Eadie’s long range effort evaded Thurrock goalkeeper Ben McNamara.

Fleet drew level six minutes before the break through Spence, who had been thwarted on numerous occasions in an entertaining first half.

Spence had a strike turned around the post by Shane Gore before the captain fired home a 25 yard screamer.

But Wingate & Finchley were to take a slender lead into half-time as Reece Beckles-Richards found the top corner from long range.

Fleet levelled matters once again five minutes after the interval, as Clark slotted the ball into the bottom corner.

And the game was turned on its head two minutes after equalising as Thurrock were awarded a penalty.

Clark stepped up and sent Gore the wrong way to notch his second goal in as many minutes.

Thurrock were reduced to 10 men when Goode was dismissed, and it looked as though the home side were going to make the most of their numerical advantage as the referee pointed to the spot for a second time.

However, Wingate & Finchley were not to take their chance as Freddy Moncur fired over the crossbar from 12 yards after being fouled by Perry Dunn.

Wingate & Finchley continued to push for an equaliser, but Fleet wrapped up all three points by claiming a fourth goal.

Spence’s 81st minute effort deflected into the back of the net to complete the midfielder’s brace and the scoring.

Thurrock remain in 13th place in the Isthmian Premier League standings.
