HARROW are fast becoming kings of the road as they ended a fabulous February with their most polished away performance of the season so far.
Before last month David Howell's side had only won twice away from home, one being that rip-roaring 5-3 victory at Kingstonian in the second game of the season.
Too many bouts of travel sickness followed but now Borough are riding on a crest of a wave. This
was their fourth win in five with three of those on their opponent's turf.
On Saturday goals from Rocky Baptiste, Tobi Jinadu and Dewayne Clarke blew Maidstone away to put Harrow in seventh heaven in the Ryman Premier League table.
"It was certainly our most professional display of the season," said manager Howell. "We had to adapt to difficult conditions and the team equipped themselves well and did what I asked of them.
"Keita (Karamoko, goalkeeper) came in and did well, the defence was really solid with Richard Orlu having his best game for us. Dean Fenton and Lewis Cook were a constant threat while James King was tenacious, passionate, committed and bossed the midfield with Kwasi (Frempong).
"The front two, Clarkey and Rocky, were like Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole - they only ever seem to pass to each other! They've got 17 goals between them now but could have had that many in half a dozen games."
Borough have played less games than some of their rivals but a seven match winning streak, their best of the season, has instilled confidence and belief in a squad of players which at one stage could not even attend away matches on time.
Time-keeping is no longer a problem. If anything, Howell's players have become just as punctual and timely on the pitch. Baptiste struck after just six minutes before late headers from Jinadu the juggernaut and top scorer Clarke in the 87th and 88th minute sealed a terrific win that puts them right in the hunt for a play-off spot.
