HARROW BOROUGH 1
CARSHALTON ATHLETIC 2
A HOWLER from on-loan Watford keeper Jack Bonham cost Harrow dearly as they were beaten by fellow Ryman Premier Division strugglers Carshalton on Saturday.
The youngster’s error allowed Laurent Hamici to claim his second goal of the game at Earlsmead and complete the turnaround for the visitors after Rob Wolleaston had given Boro an early lead.
After a cagey start from both sides, Harrow opened the scoring in the 16th minute when Jon-Jo Bates cut in from the left and threaded the ball through for Wolleaston who calmly applied the finish.
Wolleaston had the chance to double his tally as the game passed the half-hour mark, however the midfielder blazed his shot over from 20-yards.
But five minutes before the break Paul Vines swung in a teasing cross from the right and his strike partner Hamici powered in a header to pull the visitors level.
Michael Barima nearly restored Harrow’s advantage just after the restart but Carshalton keeper Nick Hamann did superbly to tip the speed merchant’s fierce shot over.
And when Aryantaj Tajbakhsh challenged Tom Davis in midfield, the ball broke to Wolleaston but the Boro man was again denied his second of the match as his low strike crashed against the post.
Carshalton started to respond and were gifted the lead on 68 minutes when on-loan Hornets keeper Bonham somehow allowed Hamici’s tame effort slip through his grasp.
Simon Akinola was carried off with five minutes remaining, and despite the addition of Danny Buckle in attack, the 10 Harrow players left on the pitch failed to find the equaliser in a disappointing afternoon for the hosts at Earlsmead.
