Harrow Borough showed no shortage of fight and grit as they rescued a 1-1 draw against Salisbury on Saturday in a match in which they were distinctly second best.

It looked as if Steve Baker’s Borough would slip to defeat at Earlsmead after Jacob Wannell’s 72nd-minute header had broken the deadlock, only for Ryan Haugh to salvage a share of the spoils in injury time in their latest Southern League Premier South clash.

Steve Claridge’s Salisbury side started brightly with Harrow goalkeeper Hafed Al-Droubi called into action to deny Tom Whelan before Dan Fitchett fired wide.

The visitors then struck the post for the first time in the match when Fitchett’s cross found Bay Downing and his diving header had Al-Droubi beaten all ends up.

Whelan was next to go close when he, too, smacked the upright from a free-kick as Harrow continued to live dangerously.

Borough were reduced to efforts from distance and half chances so it was no surprise to see Salisbury snatch the lead with 18 minutes remaining.

A deep corner found Wannell who guided home, but Harrow would snatch a point in the dying embers when Anthony O’Connor fed left-back Haugh and he volleyed home emphatically.
