De­fen­sive re­solve hailed by Weaver

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

NA­TIONAL LEAGUE: Har­ro­gate Town man­ager Si­mon Weaver praised his side’s de­fen­sive show­ing as they recorded a fourth suc­ces­sive away vic­tory.

They beat Ebb­s­fleet United 2-0, mean­ing they re­main un­beaten in eight fix­tures on the road this sea­son and stay third, just a point off top spot.

Cal­lum Howe and Aaron Wil­liams net­ted Har­ro­gate’s goals, and they de­nied their hosts a shot on tar­get un­til stop­page-time.

“It was a re­ally im­pres­sive per­for­mance from the de­fend­ers in terms of their con­cen­tra­tion,” said Weaver.

“I thought the back-line were ter­rific, but you could see that both wide­men were track­ing back and dou­bling up, and from all sec­tions you could see 100 per cent com­mit­ment.”

Har­ro­gate took the lead af­ter 30 min­utes, cen­tre-half Howe head­ing home Joe Leesley’s cor­ner to reg­is­ter his fifth goal of the sea­son. Wil­liams wrapped things up in the 72nd minute af­ter rac­ing on to Ge­orge Thom­son’s through-ball.
