A second half Gosport Borough goal saw Harrow borough slip to yet another defeat, this time a 1-0 loss on the road.

Theo Lewis scored seven minutes into the second half to consign Harrow to their fourth consecutive defeat in the Southern League Premier Division South.

Josh Andrew and Thomas Scott missed out through suspension, so Ryan Haugh returned and Fulham loanee Ben Tricker made his debut.

Gosport were the first to threaten but after a free-kick well down nicely for Flood, he flashed a half-volley over the bar on the turn.

Harrow’s response came through Marc Charles-Smith, but he couldn’t direct a header on target after some good work by Michael Bryan down the right-hand side.

The pair combined again towards the end of the half, this time Bryan’s cross coming from the left, but it was the same result from Charles-Smith as he fired wide.

Harrow started the second half well as a driven free-kick from George Moore drew a good save from the Gosport goalkeeper.

Shortly after, though, Gosport took the lead as Luca Ashby-Hammond spilled Chris Flood’s effort into the path of Lewis, who was left with the simple task of tapping home.

The final chance for the visitors went begging late on. Moore’s cross found Dylan Ive, but his shot was somehow cleared over the bar by Charlie Davis to keep his side in front until the end.

Borough now sit 16th in the league table, still just three points above the drop zone. Next up for them is a home game against fellow strugglers Weston-super-Mare this Saturday.
