Harrow Borough had to settle for a point on their trip to South Wales as they picked up a 1-1 draw against Merthyr Town in the Evo-Stik League South Premier Division South.

Adam Pepera seized upon a Merthyr defensive mistake to hand Borough a first-half advantage, but Ian Traylor found an equaliser soon after the restart to level the game.

Steve Baker made no changes to the side that beat Taunton Town last week.

Harrow settled into the game after a nervy start and started to pass the ball around with confidence, and they went close when Ryan Moss headed down to Anthony O’Connor, but his snap-shot went just past the post.

The opening goal came soon after that chance when Pepera kept the ball in play on the touchline but lost possession, however the Merthyr defender gifted him the ball back, and a low shot beat the unsighted Lewis Webb at the far corner.

The home side only needed four minutes of the second half to draw level as Mark McLeod lost the ball in midfield and some nice movement opened up the space for Traylor to drive the ball across Hafed Al-Droubi.

The point sees Borough drop back one place to seventh in the league table, a point behind both Kings Langley and Poole Town, who are tied on 54.

Borough’s next game comes this Saturday at 3pm, away at Hartley Wintney.
