Harrow Borough manager Steve Baker was delighted to see his side pick up three points away at Dorchester Town on Saturday despite a number of injury problems.
Dylan Kearney's 95th minute winner handed Borough all three points in a game which was overshadowed by alleged racist abuse from home supporters towards Harrow players.
Frank Keita suffered a broken metatarsal in the game and is likely to be out for two months, while Ant O'Connor could also be out for a number of weeks after sustaining an ankle injury.
But Baker praised the attitude of his players in the victory, which put an end to a run of seven games without a win.
"We took just 14 fit players to Dorchester on Saturday and this went down to 13 before kick off after we lost Jordan Ireland in the warm-up," Baker said.
"It was, however, a game I thought we could get something out of and given recent form, it was a must.
"The game was dictated by the heavy wind with us being stronger in the first half and them in the second.
"We did look fairly comfortable at 1-0 but after conceding a late equaliser I had settled for a point.
"We scored a fantastic winner in the 95th minute with Dylan Kearney finishing off a great move to score his first goal since returning to the club on loan.
"I was delighted with the three points and the attitude the players showed."
