IT was another enjoyable away game for the White Tigers as we ran out comfortable 1-2 winners at a wet Harrow Borough.
Two goals either side of half time from Tyler Harvey put us in control of the encounter despite a late surge from our hosts.
Following on from away wins at Barnstaple Town and Yate Town we went into the game full of confidence and that showed in the early stages.
Will Dean saw a couple of free kicks comfortably cleared away while Niall Thompson blazed a shot high and wide.
It wasn’t long before we broke the deadlock. Luke Jephcott forced the keeper into a save before Tyler Harvey latched onto the loose ball and fired home into the far bottom corner to give us the lead with his fourth goal in three games since returning to the club.
A second nearly came ten minutes later. Niall Thompson again was making a nuisance of himself as he ran to the byline before crossing to Ryan Law at the back post but the full backs effort was pushed away for a corner.
Thompson was then denied by a top save after the striker tried his luck from the edge of the area while Austen Booth found himself 1v1 after being played in by Dean but the midfielder fluffed his lines and fired over.
Going into the second half, City’s dominance continued, as did the rain. Both Thompson and Harvey saw shots saved before City got their second.
Jephcott’s shot hit an arm and the referee pointed to the penalty spot just past the hour mark. Harvey stepped up and their was only ever one outcome as the striker finished high into the roof of the net.
Harvey nearly had hit hat trick as he was first to react to a poor clearance but his half volley went just over the bar. Thompson was again denied as he ran through on goal but was was stopped in his tracks by the Harrow keeper.
The home side did manage to pull one back on 88 minutes. Frank Keita headed past James Hamon from close range to create a nervy finish.
Despite Harrow’s late pressure we managed to hold strong and claim all three points moving us up to second in the Southern League Premier South.
We now turn our attentions to Tuesday evening where we entertain Poole Town at Treyew Road in a top of the table clash (Kick Off: 7:45pm).
