Boro were beaten 4-0 at home to Margate last Saturday

Harrow Borough go in search of a quick return to winning ways when they visit Dorking Wanderers in the Bostik Premier on Saturday.

Last weekend saw Boro suffer a disappointing 4-0 loss at home to promotion hopefuls Margate.

Steve Baker’s men endured the worst possible start, with Jordan Chiedozie putting the Gate ahead with a penalty in just the second minute.

Things went from bad to worse in the 27th minute when the Rogers Family Stadium outfit had midfielder Mark McLeod dismissed.

Having to play for over an hour with 10 men, things were always likely to be difficult for Harrow, and so it proved.

With six minutes left in the half, Boro conceded a second when Kane Haysman found the target for the Kent outfit.

Baker’s boys endured a similarly poor start to the second period, with Frannie Collin netting for Margate in the 47th minute.

The Rogers Family Stadium outside then let in what proved to be the final goal 11 minutes later, with Chiedozie doubling up.

It was a disappointing afternoon for Harrow, who went into the clash with the Gate having won their previous two league matches.

That form had seen Boro pull away from the drop zone in the league, but know a quick return to winning ways will dismiss any nagging relegation fears.

It could be a close game with Dorking this weekend, though, with Baker’s boys just two points and three places behind their hosts on Saturday.

Wanderers have been in good form of late and are yet to be beaten in the league in 2018, though three of their last four matches have ended in draws.

When Harrow hosted Dorking back in November, there was a winner, but Boro were on the wrong side of a seven-goal thriller.

Despite Ryan Moss, Kurtis Cumberbatch and Michael Bryan all finding the target for Baker’s boys, they were beaten 4-3 at the Rogers Family Stadium by Wanderers.

Harrow will hope they can gain an element of revenge this weekend and get the better of Dorking on their to Surrey and the Westhumble Playing Fields.
