The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE - By Ian Barham

STAINES Town moved within a point of the play­off places af­ter a sec­ond-half goal flurry.

The vis­i­tors went ahead with a for­tu­itous goal af­ter quar­ter of an hour when Max Wors­fold crossed in from the left and some­how it evaded every­one in the box and went in.

Har­low nearly equalised soon af­ter the restart when a scram­ble in­side the Staines box needed the slight­est of touches to poke the ball over the line, but the vis­i­tors cleared the dan­ger.

Staines dou­bled their lead through Lewis Driver, with David Hughes un­able to get enough on the ball.

The fight­back was on with 20 min­utes to play when the hosts pulled a goal back. Harry Hon­esty's cross from the left was turned into his own net by Ugo Udoji. Four min­utes later Har­low were level when Jared Small latched on to a long goal clear­ance and drilled home.

The Hawks’ hopes of get­ting some­thing from the game were dashed less than a minute later. El­liot Buchanan smashed a pow­er­ful shot goal­wards which was saved but Lewis Driver re­acted quick­est. Buchanan then played in Mo­hamed Bet­tamer with six min­utes re­main­ing to score.
