Boro head to Suffolk of the back of an important win at home to Worthing last weekend

Harrow Borough visit Leiston in the Bostik Premier on Saturday, looking to build on a victory in their last outing.

Boro collected their fourth success in their last six matches in the league with a 1-0 win at home to relegation-threatened Worthing last weekend.

The only goal of the game came early on, with Ryan Moss scoring in the ninth minute to put Steve Baker’s men ahead.

The Rogers Family Stadium outfit were able to hold on to their lead for the remainder of the match and pick up a much-needed victory in the process.

It was a result that lifted Harrow 12 points clear of bottom club Burgess Hill Town with less than two months of the season remaining.

Boro will hope to increase that advantage with another success on Saturday, but know it will be tough against a competitive Leiston side.

Just five points outside of the top five ahead of the weekend, the Blues still have hopes of reaching the play-offs this term.

After a sticky period in the league when they went four games without a win, results have recently picked up for the Suffolk club, managed by Glenn Driver.

Leiston have won their last two matches in the competition, including a fine 3-1 success at home to runaway leaders Billericay Town on their last outing at their Victory Road home.

Baker’s boys will hope to avoid a fate similar to the one Billericay suffered when they head to Suffolk on Saturday.

When the Rogers Family Stadium club hosted Leiston in the league in December, they suffered a 5-0 loss.

Harrow will hope there is no repeat of that this weekend as they bid to put further distance between them and the relegation zone.

Christy Finch scored twice in that previous meeting and is one of the leading threats for the Blues in attack.

Matt Blake is another to watch for the Suffolk club going forward and someone Boro will want to keep quiet this weekend.

And if they can shut Finch and Blake out, Baker’s boys will give themselves a great chance of notching another league win.
