Boro triumphed at home last weekend, ending a run of five straight defeats in the league

Harrow Borough will hope to build on a first win in six Bostik Premier matches when they make the trip to Burgess Hill Town on Saturday.

Boro picked up their first league win since December 9 by recording a 3-1 win at home to Needham Market last weekend.

Steve Baker’s boys got off to a flyer, taking the lead in just the third minute through Ryan Moss.

Five minutes later, the Rogers Family Stadium club doubled their lead when Sahr Kabba found the target.

The north west Londoners would take that two-goal advantage into the break, but found themselves under pressure from a galvanised Market in the second half.

Harrow saw their lead cut in half in the 63rd minute when Jamie Griffiths netted for the visitors.

Just five minutes later, Griffiths added a second to eradicate the advantage Boro had worked so hard to create.

However, with Baker’s men seemingly heading for another league game without a win, Charles Banya netted a crucial goal for the hosts nine minutes from time.

It proved to be a decisive goal as the Rogers Family Stadium club held on to end a run of five straight defeats in the league.

The victory was a much needed one for Baker’s men, increasing the gap over the relegation zone ahead of Saturday’s trip to bottom club Burgess Hill.

Harrow will hope they can increase that advantage this weekend when they make the trip to Sussex.

Boro will want to improve their away record in the league this Saturday, having won just three times on their travels this term.

After triumphing in both of their first two away games this season, Boro have only won one of their last 12 matches on the road in the league.

Improving that record to two wins from their last 13 away games would certainly be a welcome reesult for Baker as he looks to ease his side’s relegation worries this weekend.

And it would also increase the pressure on Burgss Hill, with only one club set to be relegated from the division at the end of the current campaign.
