Dulwich Hamlet 3-2 Harrow Borough
Harrow Borough will hope to pick up where they left off against Enfield Town tonight, after nearly snatching a late draw at Dulwich Hamlet on saturday.
Borough found themselves 2-0 and 3-1 down but in the end could not find the elusive equaliser.
Kershany Samuels scored a brace within 20 minutes to give the hosts the perfect start and that was the way it remained until the break.
Substitutes Spencer Bellotti and Steve Butterworth, recognised by some as the 'SB force', stimulated a flat Borough side in the second half.
And Harrow pulled a goal back when striker Marc Charles-Smith went through on goal and finished after a neat passing move involving Butterworth.
Shortly after Dulwich were back two in front albeit in controversial circumstances as
Reds defender Michael Peacock was injured in the build up before Laurent Hamici fired past debutant keeper Charlie Horlock, who has joined the Reds on a month's loan from Wycombe Wanderers.
That seemed to galvanise Borough and Belloti curled a beautiful shot to reduce the deficit again as Harrow gathered momentum.
However, they could find the equaliser and left the Champion Hill Stadium empty-handed.
Borough boss Dave Anderson will be hoping the second half showing can inspire his side to get off the mark tonight against Enfield.
He hopes to have Anthony Maissat back from injury to replace the injured Peacock while Franics Otira was awaiting international clearance in the hope of having a chance to make his debut.
