Unbeaten in 10 league games, they go into the weekend in fifth place, just ahead of visiting Lowestoft, who were 2-0 winners when the sides met back in August.
It was a forgettable night for goalie Darren Behcet, who made a couple of costly errors and suffered a broken hand in Suffolk.

Behcet is back in a settled Hornchurch side now, though, and manager Jimmy McFarlane is hoping the locals find the urge to come along and cheer his side on.

ROMFORD v WINGATE & FINCHLEY
Frustrated by boiler problems, which saw last weekend’s clash at Leyton cancelled, Boro return to league action after almost a month at Mill Field.
Manager Paul Martin gave most of his first-choice side a run out in a 3-0 midweek friendly win at Hornchurch and has the headache of a virtually fully fit squad to chose from.
Beaten 1-0 when the two sides met in north London in August, Boro have lost just once since, to table-topping East Thurrock, and climbed into the play-off picture with a string of impressive displays.
