Three second half goals saw Harrow Borough fall to a 4-1 defeat away at Southern League Premier Division South leaders Truro City.

Borough put in a positive performance in the opening 45 minutes and took the lead through George Moore, but Tyler Harvey’s penalty made it level at the break before Will Dean, Will Swan and Harvey eased Truro to victory.

The visitors named an unchanged side to the one that drew with Chesham United last week and the continuity paid off early on as they made the better start to the game.

After 23 minutes, Harrow had the lead when Anthony O’Connor laid the ball off to Moore, and he side-footed past James Hamon from 15 yards.

Unfortunately for Borough, they held their lead for just four minutes as Chinua Cole tripped Swan in the box, and although he controversially escaped a red card, Harvey beat Luca Ashby-Hammond from the spot to make it 1-1.

Truro returned for the second half with more life in them and showed why they are at the top of the league, taking the lead on 49 minutes when Dean collected a pass and shot past the static Ashby-Hammond.

Borough had no answer to Truro’s second and the Cornwall side extended their lead 10 minutes later when a right-wing cross was glanced home by Swan off the far post.

O’Connor had a chance to bring Harrow back into the game when he seized upon a loose ball, but Hamon was quickly out to deny the striker.

Truro then put the icing on the cake with 14 minutes to go as Harvey headed home from a corner to make it 4-1.

Defeat leaves Harrow six points above the relegation zone ahead of their home game against play-off hunters Salisbury this weekend.
