Six teams fighting to avoid two relegation spots in Ryman Premier Division

Harrow Borough boss Steve Baker is under no illusions as to the importance of their Ryman Premier Division clash at Lowestoft this weekend.

A 2-0 home defeat against north London rivals Hendon on Bank Holiday Monday means Baker’s men are still not completely safe from relegation heading into the last match of the season.

Harrow head to the Suffolk coast as one of six teams looking to avoid falling into the bottom four with already-relegated Grays and Sudbury and Baker said: “Saturday’s game now is absolutely huge and a must-win.

“We have hit a poor run at the wrong time through injuries, player unavailability and too many not performing.

“However we will draw on experience from previous situations and I believe 100 per cent that the team can get the required result.”

Harrow’s last win came courtesy of a 3-1 success at Sudbury on March 18, since when they have taken just three points in eight matches to find themselves on a total of 53, looking nervously over their shoulders.

Baker added: “A few weeks ago it looked like we were well clear but the last five games (one point) have dragged us back in it.

“Any other year 53 points would easily have been enough with a game to go but this is a bit of a freak season with a team potentially going down on 54 points.

“There are all sorts of scenarios this Saturday for the 6 teams involved but the only thing that matters is winning our game.

“Our destiny is in our hands and that is the only way to ensure safety. Both myself, my staff and the players will give it everything we have got to remain in the division.”
