Harrow Borough skipper Wayne Walters bemoaned his side’s lack of consistency after Saturday’s draw with Sutton ended a frustrating week for the Earlsmead side. It was Borough’s third game in five days against teams in the top six – games which thanks to careless mistakes yielded just a single point when in the mind of the veteran defender they might have had as many as seven.
However, Walters insists if they can stop conceding ‘stupid goals’ it could be Borough challenging for promotion this time next year.
He said: “We played Dartford on Tuesday and should have won. We were 2-0 up against Tonbridge on Thursday and threw it away and should have won today.
“But it’s been the story of our season. We’ve got to try and learn from it and build for next season and push for the play-offs because I believe with the team we’ve got we can get there.
“The difference between us and the play-off chasers is our consistency or the lack of it. We’ve drawn so many games when we should have won. It’s about consistently winning games and shoring up at the back so we don’t give away stupid goals like today.”
The point gained against the U’s means barring an extraordinary sequence of results Dave Howell’s men can prepare for another season of Ryman League Premier Division football.
However, Walters promised there would be no early thoughts of summer holidays in tonight's last home game of the season with Cray Wanderers, or at Ashford Town Middlesex on Saturday.
“We are not looking to see out the rest of the season. We want to try and win the last two games. We’re still motivated because we wanted to finish as high up the table as possible.”
