Harrow Borough preview

Wingate & Finchley are back at home on Tuesday night as they play host to Harrow Borough in the Ryman Premier League. The two sides had contrasting outings on Saturday, with both games ending 4-2. Harrow were beaten at National League, Ebbsfleet United whilst Wingate won at Slough Town.

The teams have already played each other twice this season, with both games ending in a Wingate win. The first was a 4-4 Ryman League Cup draw, which Wingate won 8-7 on penalties; whilst a Billy Healey screamer separated the sides a week later in the League. Wingate’s danger man at the moment is Reece Beckles-Richards; who has nine goals in his last nine games, including seven in his last four. Whilst at the back – an almost constant back six has meant Wingate are becoming more and more solid as games go on. Wingate sit fourth in the Ryman Premier League form guide – winning four and losing two of their last six games, scoring 13 goals in the process.

Meanwhile, Harrow Borough’s form has left a lot to be desired. With only two wins in their last six league games, they sit second from bottom in the league and have lost their last four games in all competitions. Ibrahim Meite leads Boro’s goal scorers chart, with 13 goals whilst Marc-Charles Smith has seven. Wingate will know the danger the two front men pose having experienced them twice already. But stopping them could be a tougher ask.

However, Keith Rowland’s side will know that there are no easy games in this division – and will be looking to avoid complacency after Saturday’s magnificent victory at Arbour Park. By Nikhil Saglani
