Harlow Town extended their unbeaten home run in the Isthmian League South Central Division this season with a 2-1 win over Hertford Town on Saturday.

Kouadio Ehui put the away side in front but Terrell Egbri levelled before Matt Rush struck the winner two minutes from time.

Harlow goalkeeper Josh Bexon was called into action early on to parry away a curling effort from Luke Gymer, but it was the Hertford midfielder that won the free-kick which led to the opening goal shortly after.

Benjamin Herd laid it off for Ehui, and his rasping 30-yard strike flew into the top corner past the helpless Bexon to put the leaders in front.

The Hawks came close to levelling the game in response, but after a flowing move down the right, Egbri’s eventual effort skimmed over the crossbar.

After a quiet start to the second half, Harlow equalised almost out of nothing when Hertford’s goalkeeper was hesitant in claiming a long ball forward from from Oliver Gnandi, and Samson Doherty capitalised to tap across for Egbri to score.

The second half saw both sides trade blows, but it was to be Harlow that took all three points late on as Rush fired in a cross with only two minutes left on the clock.

Next up for the Hawks is Velocity Trophy action as they visit Soham Town Rangers tomorrow night, kicking off at 7.45pm.
