Garfield Struthers’ team ended a five-match run without a victory on Saturday

Hornsey host Winchmore Hill on Saturday hoping to make it back-to-back wins in the Middlesex County Division Two.

Garfield Struthers' side had been on a poor run of form before they won by seven wickets at Wycombe House last weekend.

Prior to the much-needed triumph, Hornsey had gone five games without a victory and this saw them slide down the table.

An impressive bowling display inspired a return to form with Bhasker Patel taking 5-56 from 25 overs
