Boro beat Tooting & Mitcham United in London Senior Cup on Tuesday

Harrow Borough head for Swindon Supermarine in the Evo-Stik South Premier South on Saturday, keen to build on a midweek triumph in the London Senior Cup.

Boro beat Tooting & Mitcham United 5-2 in the second round of the London Senior Cup on Tuesday night to progress to the quarter-finals.

Steve Baker’s boys took the lead in the 16th minute when George Moore found the target at the KNK Stadium.

The Rogers Family Stadium club saw their lead doubled six minutes later when Terrors defender Tope Fadahunsi netted an own goal.

Ryan Moss then scored for Harrow in the 32nd minute, ensuring the visitors would lead by three heading into half-time.

Boro had to wait for their fourth goal, which finally arrived through Excellence Muhemba in the 77th minute.

Tooting pulled one back in the 81st minute through Antonio Simeone, which only looked to be a consolation effort.

That sparked an immediate response from Baker’s boys, who added their fifth through Dylan Kearney a minute later.

Despite the end result, it was United who would have the final say as Stefan Ilic netted the last goal of the game five minutes from time.

The Rogers Family Stadium club’s reward for beating the Terrors is a trip to Clapton in the quarter-finals.

With Tons currently playing two tiers below Harrow in the Essex Senior League, Boro may well fancy their chances of making it through to the semi-finals of the London Senior Cup.

However, with a date still to be confirmed, Baker’s boys must first focus on their efforts in the league, which continue with Saturday’s trip to Supermarine.

The Rogers Family Stadium club are sure to be buoyed for the trip to Webbswood Stadium by their success at Tooting in midweek.

Harrow will hope the clash against the Marine marks a return to winning ways in the league after a defeat at Walton Casuals in their last outing in the competition back on November 3.

And if the win over Tooting is anything to go by, Boro certainly possess enough firepower in attack to trouble Supermarine.
