Miles Mitchell-Nelson scored in the third minute of stoppage time to seal a 3-2 win for Harlow Town away at Chalfont St Peter and to go top of the Isthmian League South Central Division on a five-game winning streak.

Three goals in the last four minutes of the first half saw Chalfont ahead, with Terrell Egbri striking either side of an Oliver Gnandi own goal and Luke Illsley’s hit.

Egbri levelled the game once more just after the hour mark and it looked as though that was how the game would remain until Mitchell-Nelson’s winner in the dying seconds snatched all three points.

Chalfont had an excellent chance to take the lead in a first half where they appeared to be well on top, but after getting in behind the Harlow defence and seeing Josh Bexon spill a cross, the Hawks managed to hack the ball off the line and to safety.

However, the home side did take the lead shortly before half time when, after some patient build-up play on the right, a cross was swung in and sliced into his own net by Gnandi after completely misjudging the ball.

Just as the clock ticked onto 45 minutes, Harlow levelled the game when Egbri bagged his first of the afternoon, but before stoppage time was out Chalfont regained their lead when Illsley fired home.

Harlow’s winning run appeared to be under threat, but they were given further hope of keeping their hot streak of form going when Egbri levelled for a second time on 63 minutes.

Having been behind twice, Harlow would likely have settled for a point, but with just seconds left, Mitchell-Nelson ensured that they took all three instead, moving to the top of the league as a result with a two-point lead over Tooting & Mitcham United.

As the Harlow Guardian was going to print, the Hawks were preparing for their Velocity Trophy fixture at Cambridge City on Wednesday evening, while their next league match is this Saturday at home to Westfield.
