An individual error again proved key as Harrow fell to defeat at Tonbridge.

Young centre-back Tayo Davies-Coker was the one to see his mistake punished this time as Steve Baker’s men suffered once more.

The first half was a very forgettable one, as Melvin Minter made a brave save at Alex Akrofi’s feet, and Chinua Cole’s block stopped a shot from Dan Bennett.

Harrow’s only attempts were headers, with Sahr Kabba sending his wide as Ryan Moss saw his saved.

But the second period made up for the first with much incident, as Akrofi curled an early free-kick just wide.

Angels then went ahead in the 51st minute as a break through a square Harrow back four found Xaiver Vidal, whose shot was saved by Minter before Akrofi swept in the loose ball from an angle.

It was nearly 2-0 when Tom Jelley raided on the right and fired a sumptuous cross inches away from Akrofi and Nathan Elder but Harrow’s Michael Bryan saw a curling shot force a diving save from Jon Henly.

Minter denied Akrofi, before Bryan fired over from Charles Banya’s deep cross and sent a cross fizzing through the goalmouth.

On 64 minutes, sub Sam Bantick got the wrong side of Cole and went to ground, but Minter saved Joe Turner’s penalty.

Then Harrow were given a spot-kick when Kabba went down and Kurtis Cumberbatch stepped forward to calmly equalise.

But it only took two minutes for Tonbridge to go back in front as Davies-Coker slipped and Akrofi floated the ball across for Elder to head in at the far post.

Harrow pressed forward and Davies-Coker headed over from a Cumberbatch corner, George Moore shot wide and Moss headed against the inside of the post, the ball rebounding into a grateful Henly’s arms.

Adam Pepera was close to slicing into his own goal from another dangerous cross by Jelley, while substitute Anthony O’Connor tried a hugely ambitious shot when Moss and Kabba were in better positions.

Harrow host in-form Hendon on Boxing Day at 1pm.

Harrow: Minter, Moore, Cole, Davies-Coker (O’Connor 86), Pepera, Cumberbatch, Banya, Preddie, Moss, Bryan, Kabba. Unused subs: Stewart, Beggs.
