Wealdstone extend eight points clear at the top of the National League South with a hard-fought 2-0 win against Welling United at Park View Road.
Two second half goals from Michael Phillips and Dennon Lewis cancelled out Adam Coombes’ late penalty, as the Stones propelled to their ninth consecutive league win.
Ross Lafayette could have broken the deadlock inside seven minutes when Aston Oxborough’s goal-kick sent the Stones top scorer through on-goal.
His half volley was blasted over from inside the penalty area.
The first half was goalless with the game firmly on a knife-edge, either team could be a goal up after Welling created many chances in the opening period.
The second half was balanced again as Jacob Mendy sprinted powerfully down the right from his own half before he fired over from the edge of the box.
Welling looked to break the deadlock when Theo Widdrington took aim from the edge of the box after the hour, which cannoned off the post.
The deadlock was finally broken in the 68th minute when Green’s corner from the left found Phillips free at the back-post and fiercely headed into the net.
Wealdstone had been dominated for portions of this game, but a silky move from Billy Clifford and Danny Green threaded through Lewis who made no mistake in-front of goal, curling a first-time effort into the bottom corner.
There was a late display from the hosts to get back in the game, as Callum McCallum was fouled by Michee Efete, Coombes made no mistake blasting his penalty in off the bar with five minutes left.
