Harrow Borough go in search of a third straight win in the Bostik Premier when they make the trip to Harlow Town on Saturday.

Last weekend, Boro saw off Kingstonian with a 2-0 win at Earlsmead Stadium thanks to a brace from Reis Stanislaus.

In front of a crowd of 227 on ‘Non-League Day’, Steve Baker’s men took the lead in the 33rd minute following an even start to proceedings against the K’s.

Charles Banya intercepted a loose pass by a Kingstonian defender and looked to be through on goal, before being fouled in the box with the hosts awarded a penalty.

Kingstonian captain Sam Page, who committed the foul, was sent off, with Stanislaus calmly converting the resulting spot kick for his first of the match.

The Harrow forward was at the double two minutes later, turning the ball into the net from a tight angle following a corner.

As well as securing back-to-back league wins, Boro also collected consecutive clean sheets for the first time this term.

Baker’s boys were scheduled to face league leaders Billericay Town at home on Tuesday night, but that match was postponed.

Billericay, owned and managed by Glenn Tamplin, have an FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie on Saturday, with rules allowing the Blues to have a free midweek prior to that game.

It means Harrow will now host the heavy favourites for the title at Earslmead Stadium on November 28.

Before all that, of course, is the trip to the Harlow on Saturday as Harrow look to give a good account of themselves on the 3G surface at the Harlow Arena.

Boro have not been in good form on the road in the league of late, having not triumphed on their last four travels.

Baker’s team, though, will hope to earn a first win away from home in the division since August 19 on Saturday.

Harrow will be boosted by a glance at the Hawks’ recent home form, with no win at the Harlow Arena in their last three matches in all competitions.

Boro will hope to extend that wait for a home win for Town on Saturday, and could well need Stanislaus to double up with goals again.
