Boro beat Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday for their first win on over a month

Harrow Borough will bid to build on a midweek win in the Bostik Premier when they host high-flying Kingstonian on ‘Non-League Day’ on Saturday.

Boro cruised to an emphatic 3-0 success at home to Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday night — ending a run of seven games without a win in all competitions.

Charles Banya opened the scoring early in the first half, netting for Steve Baker’s men in just the 12th minute.

On the stroke of half time, the visitors doubled their lead when Adam Richards found the net in fortuitous fashion.

Wingate keeper Reuben Rabstein punched a corner against Richards’ back and could only watch in horror as the ball went into net.

With 25 minutes left in the match, Harrow completed the scoring when Taurean Roberts found the target.

The victory over Wingate was just the second time this season, and the first at home, that Boro had kept a clean sheet.

At both ends of the pitch, there are certainly positive aspects for Baker to build on ahead of the visit of Kingstonian this weekend.

Harrow will also be buoyed by the midweek result for the K’s, with Craig Edwards’ men going down 5-1 at Burgess Hill Town on Tuesday night.

That result will no doubt please the Harrow attackers who demonstrated their prolificacy against Wingate.

With no Premier League or Championship action this weekend, it is hoped there will be a bumper crowd at the Earslmead Stadium for Non-League Day on Saturday.

For a fourth successive season, Prostate Cancer UK will be the official charity partner of Non-League Day.

The annual event will see hundreds of football clubs from across the non-league pyramid encouraged to raise awareness and money for the charity.

“Prostate Cancer UK’s work across football goes from strength to strength but the statistics about the disease are still chilling,” said Non-League Day founder James Doe.

“One man dies every 45 minutes so more than ever we need to raise awareness and funds to hit back.”
