Harrogate remain the team to catch
NATIONAL LEAGUE: Harrogate Town are still top of the table after fighting back from a goal down to edge out Havant & Waterlooville 3-2.
Just six minutes were on the clock when the hosts found themselves behind.
Visiting left-winger Josh Huggins nodded on for the unmarked Nicke Kabamba, who forwards before firing into the bottom corner.
Simon Weaver’s side, however, got back on level terms a little over five minutes later when, after Joe Leesley’s delightful cross into the area found Callum Howe to power home a header.
A fast start to the second period then saw the hosts take charge of proceedings with George Thomson’s 52ndminute corner creating havoc in the visitors’ box before the ball eventually fell for Dominic Knowles to force home at the back post.
Five minutes later, Knowles danced past a Hawks defender and into the box before pulling back from the right towards the penalty spot where the waiting Jack Muldoon squeezed a shot through goalkeeper Ryan Young.
Town gifted their visitors a way back into the contest when Lloyd Kerry lost possession inside his own box and the ball broke for Kabamba to lift delicately over James Belshaw.
But the hosts’ held on for a third straight win, taking their unbeaten start to 10 games.
