Bostik Premier: Billericay Town 2 (Robinson 66, Rooney 78)

Harrow Borough were unable to pull further clear of the relegation zone in the Bostik Premier after a 2-0 defeat at big-spending Billericay Town.

Boro were looking to build on a 1-0 victory at Kingstonian in the league on Saturday, and seemed on course to do just that with their game at the Blues goalless at the break.

The deadlock, though, was broken in the 66th minute when Jake Robinson fired Town ahead in the match, which was being played at Aveley’s Parkside because of a waterlogged pitch at New Lodge.

Billericay moved further clear 12 minutes later when substitute Luke Rooney found the target.

Despite the defeat, Steve Baker’s men remain 12 points clear of the relegation zone ahead of a trip to Mertstham on Saturday.

Billericay: Julian, Inman, Foley (Urquhart 46), Paine (Evans 57), Swaine, Deering, Modeste, Butcher, Bricknell, O’Hara (Rooney 74), Robinson.

Subs: Wheeler, Hughes.

Harrow: Minter, Moore, Cole, Preddie (Rodriguez 77), Pepera, Hall, Banya, McLeod (Dawkins 74), Moss, Bryan, Cumberbatch.

Subs: Elsahib.
