ALEX READ se­cured a vi­tal win for Harlow in the 89th minute of this bot­tom-of-the-ta­ble clash.

Worthing twice took the lead, but were pegged back both times as each side fin­ished the game with ten men.

Kieron Pam­ment gave Worthing the per­fect start in the sec­ond minute when he burst free from the mid­field and hit a piledriver past Hawks keeper David Hughes.

The Hawks drew level on 15 min­utes when former Read­ing de­fender Ibrahima Sonko headed home from a cor­ner.

Harlow were in the as­cen­dancy,

But with half an hour played Worthing coun­ter­at­tacked and a cross fell to Reece Myles-Meekums who fin­ished well.

On the stroke of half time Harlow drew level again. Jared Small’s low cross found Fabion Simms in the box, and he picked his spot.

Harlow were up against it on 68 min­utes when Jide Mad­u­ako saw red for a late chal­lenge, which seemed a harsh de­ci­sion.

Par­ity was re­stored how­ever on 81 min­utes when Worthing’s Ben Pope was also dis­missed harshly, in his case for a slid­ing tackle.

But Harlow’s sec­ond­half pres­sure paid off when a goal­keep­ing er­ror from Co­volan gifted a chance to Read, who ri­fled in from close range to earn the home side the points.
