Boro visit Fleet this weekend

Harrow Borough will look to end a five-game winless run in all competitions when they visit Thurrock in the Bostik Premier on Saturday.

Boro have not won any game since they overcame Bedfont Sports in the Middlesex Senior Challenge Cup on October 17.

Since then, Steve Baker’s boys have lost three times in the league, and have also exited the FA Trophy and the Middlesex Senior Challenge Cup.

The defeat in the county competition came on Tuesday night as the Rogers Family Stadium outfit lost 2-1 away to Hendon.

After falling behind early in the second half, Kurtis Cumberbatch struck in the 73rd minute to restore parity for Harrow.

However, with 10 minutes remaining, Boro conceded again and this time were unable to draw level before the end of the match.

Last Saturday, Baker’s boys suffered a 5-2 defeat on their trip to struggling Tooting & Mitcham United in the league.

Following a disastrous first half at the KNK Stadium, the west Londoners were 3-0 down at the break.

However, a George Moore double looked the have hauled Harrow back into contention with 15 minutes remaining.

Boro’s hopes of completing a comeback were dealt a blow in the 80th minute when Kurtis Cumberbatch was dismissed, before Tooting scored a fourth two minutes later.

Curtis Ujah then joined Cumberbatch in departing early when picking up a second booking in the 88th minute, with United completing the scoring less than 60 seconds later.

With a match against another lowly side in Thurrock this weekend, Baker’s boys will wish for a better result this weekend.

The Fleet have been in poor form of late in the league, winning just one of their last eight matches in the division.

Currently 23rd ahead of the weekend, Mark Stimson’s side are just three points clear of bottom club Worthing, though do have three games in hand over the Mackerelmen.

Harrow, though, will want to stop Thurrock from pulling further clear of trouble as Boro bid for their own return to winning ways in the league this weekend.
