TOM PETT is hoping lightning will strike twice when Wealdstone visit Wingate & Finchley tomorrow.
Stones’ diminutive winger has happy memories of his last visit to the Harry Abrahams Stadium with previous club Potters Bar.
And having struck three goals in two victories for Stones this week, including a 95th minute winner against Concord last night, Pett is hopeful of continuing his scoring spree against relegation-haunted Gate.
He said: “I scored a hat-trick at Wingate on New Year’s day a few years ago so more of that would be nice.”
Pett’s goal-scoring exploits at Potters Bar were a big factor in Stones Boss Gordon Bartlett bringing Pett to the Vale in January last year.
However, his tally has built slowly this campaign with the three goals this week bringing only the total to nine
He admitted it was 'less than he expected to have at this stage of the season' and the lack of goals had been 'playing on my mind a bit in recent weeks.'
However, having got on a roll he is hopeful he will 'set the net bulging several more times as part of a successful promotion push for Stones.'
Stones will have skipper Wes Parker and midfield enforcer Chris O’Leary back from suspension for the trip to north London, while their hosts will be without five players sent off in their recent home defeat to Thurrock.
