For the second time in a week, Harrow overcame adversity with player selection to take a well-deserved point from a Billericay side that many
experts reckon will figure in the mix at the top of the table come the end of the season.
Unlike at Hastings on Tuesday, Harrow did at least have enough players available to name a full selection of 16 players. But David Howell had to
content with Danny Leech arriving late due to M25 traffic trouble, and Jamie Lawrence failing a pre-match fitness test.
With Eugen George Burlacu having to return to Romania for the weekend, the back-four comprised Lee Hall on the right and Simon Dahl on the left, with the fit-again Wayne Walters partnering Rickey Browne in the middle, Leech staying on the bench.
Without Lawrence, a dogged midfield comprised James Fraser, Kwasi Frempong, Kai Wiliams and Daniel McGonigle, while Darren Grieves returned up-front to partner Jonathan Constant.
On a cold afternoon for early September, an excellent playing surface had coped with some very heavy pre-match rain, and indeed the wet gave the game's passing plenty of 'zip'.
The hosts were on the attack at the start, with Bricknell close to converting Ferguson's fifth minute cross, and Hunter shooting wide. But Harrow hit back and Constant's goalbound shot deflected off McSweeney and wide for a corner, that Woods-Garness nearly headed past his own keeper.
Andray Baptiste, who was to have a fine afternoon, made a good save from Bricknell and an even better one as he got up quickly to stop Wareham converting the rebound.
With some open football from both sides, a goal looked likely, and it was Harrow who got it in the 27th minute.
Frempong played the ball to McGonigle, who found Constant on the left. He cut inside a defender and crossed to the far post, where Grieves bulleted a header across Buckfield and into the far corner.
Billericay's giant Shave found himself unmarked at the far post from a deep corner, his header pushed away by Baptiste and put over by another home player. A poor Browne header then gave Bricknell an opportunity, but the Harrow keeper made another good save.
But the hosts equalised after 39 minutes when Bricknell came off his marker to meet a left-wing cross at the near post, and glanced a header that possibly went under Baptiste on its way in.
In the closing minutes of the half, there were chances at each end. Bricknell shot over from an angle, and Baptiste saved from Ferguson after a
quickly-taken free-kick, while Constant broke forward, finding Williams, who set up Grieves to come inside and hit a fierce shot just over from the edge of the box.
The second half began with a booking for McGonigle, who was late in a challenge with home keeper Buckfield. Billericay enjoyed some supremacy with Baptiste making two saves and Woods-Garness shooting across goal.
However, Harrow hit back. Constant's crossfield ball, reminiscent of the pass that set up Tuesday's second goal, gave Hall the opportunity to cross for Grieves to head just wide.
The Borough no.9 was causing the home defence lots of problems, and his header from Constant's deep free-kick was a coat of paint past the post.
Buckfield then made a fine save, twisting to turn away Constant's shot which had deflected off a defender. Grieves then couldn't quite adjust his body shape to meet McGonigle's right-wing cross, and his effort went over.
American defender Blake Goodman came on for his Harrow debut, replacing Simon Dahl. In the 72nd minute, Constant beat Marron and hit a right-foot shot that Buckfield made another fine save from. Grieves then turned on Hall's cross and saw his shot deflected wide.
After that long period of Harrow domination, Billericay had a period of pressure. Ferguson burst past two defenders on the left and saw his shot
saved by Baptiste, who saved another effort when his defenders allowed the ball to bounce over their heads.
Browne went to meet a left wing cross but the ball deflected off his foot and Baptiste had to make another good save.
In a stoppage-time Harrow broke, Williams played a one-two with Grieves, shooting wide and getting cramp in the process. Bobby Highton, whose scheduled shoulder surgery on Friday had been delayed, came on for him, and was only on the pitch for two minutes, but that was time enough for him to make an important block before the excellent referee Mr Butler blew for time on an entertaining game.
