Team news

Daniel Pappoe, Peter Adeniyi and Ricky Korboa came in for Kalvin Morath-Gibbs, Jerson dos Santos and Jacob Mendy from Monday's Surrey Cup win.


We got off to a good start - we forced an early corner which was defended, Adeniyi put a sighter over from 20 yards and Omar Koroma flashed a 25 yard angled shot just wide across Josh Bexon's goal.

But all would've been for nought had a defensive mix up on eight minutes not been averted - Pappoe played a strong back pass to Patrick Ohman who didn't get anywhere near it. Thankfully, as Harlow forward Tom Hitchcock tried to nip in, the ball went just the right side of the near post from our point of view.

We cleared the resultant corner and resumed back on the front foot but, for all our neat passing and possession, our final ball was just lacking.
