Harlow Town’s hopes of survival in the Bostik League Premier Division look bleak as Jimmy Wild’s late header meant they only took a point against Bognor Regis Town on Saturday.

Tom Hitchcock looked to have the Hawks on their way to a valuable three points when he struck on 68 minutes, but Wild’s header in the third minute of stoppage time ensured that they remain three points adrift with three games to play.

The home side had the better of the opening stages and sprung the first chance when Bradley Lethbridge went forward on the counter, but when the ball went loose, he committed a foul instead.

Bognor continued to come forward, but Marcin Brzozowski was on hand to cut out a bouncing cross from Leon Maloney before it reached Mason Walsh.

Hitchcock looked like the biggest threat for Harlow when they attacked, but he wasted an excellent chance for them when his poor through ball to Yannick Kissi went out of play.

The former MK Dons forward then thought he had earned a penalty for his side when he went to ground after receiving David Mooney’s pass, but his appeals were waved away by the referee.

It may have taken until well into the second half, but Harlow’s danger man then finally found his goal when Kissi’s cross from the left found him completely unmarked in the area to head into the top corner.

Hitchcock then thought he’d added a second to make the game safe, but he was flagged offside by the linesman.

This came back to bite the visitors because, as the game entered its third minute of additional time, Wild rose highest to meet Daniel Lincoln’s corner and nodded home.

The draw leaves Harlow three points adrift of safety at the bottom of the league with three games to go, but with two of those coming against midtable sides, Enfield Town coming first this Saturday, things certainly aren’t looking good for the Hawks.
