Ant O’Connor scored with the last kick of the game to salvage a point for Harrow Borough away at high-flying Chesham United in the Southern League Premier Division South on Tuesday night.

United took the lead through Dave Pearce’s penalty in the 67th minute after substitute Romario Hart was hauled down in the box.

But with seconds left to play, Borough snatched an equaliser via O’Connor which sees them stay in 11th place in the Southern League Premier Division South.

Chesham were showing just why they were high up in the division early on and were only prevented from going ahead by a good stop from Hafed Al-Droubi to deny Pearce.

Borough improved as the half went on and went close through both George Moore and Luke Warner-Ely, but were ultimately unable to break through the Chesham defence.

An even start to the second half ensured, with both teams creating but not finishing chances, until the breakthrough came in the 67th minute.

Hart was fouled by Matt Drage in the box, and Pearce powered home the penalty to put Chesham ahead.

Following the opener, the game started to drift away from Borough and the home side were looking likely to add a second, but Al-Droubi produced a flying save to keep out Hart.

Chesham were sensing a sixth straight win in the league, but with the final chance, Borough snatched a point. Shaun Preddie found Dylan Kearney with a knock-down and his effort was subsequently saved by Jonathan North, but he could only parry along the line to the waiting O’Connor, who tapped home from two yards.

The draw leaves Borough 11th in the table ahead of their trip to Salisbury this Saturday.
