The Reds will be without Adam Richards and Will Turl for the foreseeable future after boss Steve Baker reveals the pair have picked up bad injuries

It’s been a great week for Harrow Borough after they ended their long run without a win, but they did receive some disappointing news on the injury front recently.

Heading into Saturday’s clash with high-flying Metropolitan Police, the Reds had lost nine of their previous 11 games in all competitions.

But Borough turned the form book on its head with a strong defensive display with goalkeeper Melvin Minter in fine form during a 3-0 Bostik Premier victory.

Charles Banya gave the home side the lead with five on the clock before former Harrow goalkeeper Luke Williams failed to deal with a Kurtis Cumberbatch corner in the 17th minute and it went straight in.

Minter made numerous saves after the hosts second to ensure it stayed 2-0 and Ryan Moss added the cherry on top with a third in stoppage time.

Borough backed up their win with another victory on Tuesday night – this time at Harefield United in the first round of the Middlesex Senior Charity Cup.

Sahr Kabba netted the only goal of the game at the Hillingdon-based club to make it two wins in a row for the Reds.

Baker’s team will aim to make it three consecutive victories at Folkestone Invicta this Saturday in the league, but they’ll be braced for a stern test.

They’ll also be without Will Turl and Adam Richards due to injury and both won’t play again now for a long time.

Boss Baker said: “Adam has been ruled out until February following a knee scan on his recent injury sustained at Thurrock (November 11). We wish him a speedy recovery.

“Will has sadly had a repeat of the serious knee injury he sustained two years ago and he has re-ruptured his ACL (Anterior cruciate ligament).

“He will now face further surgery and at least another year out. I am personally gutted for him as not only is he a good forward, but a great lad who has worked so hard to get back fit.

“I’ve had Will at three different clubs and its sad to see this happen to him again.”

Reis Stanislaus, Bajram Pashaj and Enock Soganile have also all departed Harrow this week, but Baker has brought in the likes of Chinua Cole and Adam Pepera.
