Shaun Preddie’s equaliser ensured that Harrow Borough held Southern League Premier Division South leaders Chesham United to a 2-2 draw.

Michael Bryan had Harrow in front at the break before Chesham turned it around in the second half through David Pearce and Bradley Clayton, but Preddie’s drive ensured a share of the spoils.

Steve Baker made one change to the side that drew with Poole Town last weekend, bringing in Brendan Matthew for his full debut, which saw Okem Chime drop to the bench.

After absorbing lots of Chesham pressure in the opening stages, it was Harrow who nearly took the lead on half an hour when Marc Charles-Smith’s cross took a deflection off a defender and forced Ben Goode into a smart save.

Buoyed by this, Borough came forward again and went in front when Matthew played the ball into Bryan, and he cut onto his right foot before clipping the ball over Goode.

It only took Chesham four minutes of the second half to find their leveller. Eoin Casey’s shot was blocked by a Harrow defender but looped up into the air and fell nicely for Pearce to fire over Luca Ashby-Hammond.

The league leaders were soon in front, taking the lead shortly after the hour mark when Karl Oliyide switched the ball out to Clayton on the left, and he held off the challenge of Chinua Cole before chipping the ball over Ashby-Hammond.

Borough, though, were not to be denied and they found a deserved equaliser in the final quarter of the game when Bryan’s free-kick found its way to George Moore, and he played the ball back across for Preddie to hammer home the leveller.

Chesham threatened to snatch all three points, but Cole headed an effort off the line while Ashby-Hammond did well to keep out Oliyide’s strike and preserve a point.

The draw sees Borough sit 16th in the table, a point ahead of Blackfield & Langley, ahead of their long trip to Cornwall this weekend to face second-placed Truro City.
