Harrow Borough slumped to a 3-2 defeat at Dorchester Town on Saturday as their winless run in the Evo-Stik Premier South League stretched to six matches.

Boro made a slow start to the contest and Ben Seymour was only denied the breakthrough when his strike cannoned off the crossbar.

But the home side's pressure paid off as the opener came after 17 minutes when Antonio Diaz set up Seymour and he tucked the ball into the net.

The visitors had another let off when Diaz was left unmarked and he fired a shot against the bar.

It got worse for Harrow less than a minute into the second half when they conceded again. A clearance by Mitchal Gough fell straight to Luke Winsper and he diverted the ball into the net.

The hosts punished Boro again and were awarded a penalty after a foul in the area in the 51st minute. Seymour converted the spot-kick to leave the visitors in disarray.

Harrow finally came to life in the final half-an-hour and pulled a goal back in the 68th minute. Ryan Moss’ shot was blocked but Anthony O’Connor reacted quickest to tuck home the follow up.

Dorchester were nervous after conceding the goal and Harrow piled on the pressure by adding a second goal in the 84th minute. Gough’s free-kick hit the wall but fell to O’Connor. His first two efforts were blocked but the third strike took a deflection and went into the net.

Harrow thought they had grabbed the most unlikely equaliser in injury time but George Moore’s strike was superbly kept out by goalkeeper Kingsley Latham.

It leaves Steve Baker's men with just two points from a possible 18 and the side need to respond quickly to revive their play-off bid. The side travel to Farnborough in the league on Saturday.

There was further disappointment on Tuesday night when Harrow were knocked out of the Middlesex Charity Cup after losing 6-5 on penalties to Uxbridge.

David Thomas gave Uxbridge the lead but it was quickly cancelled out by Moss.

Moore fired Boro into a 2-1 lead at half-time but a 66th minute goal from Hafid Bounyafe levelled the match and forced penalties.
