Harrow Borough avoided a potential banana skin by winning 2-0 at Chatham Town in the Ryman League Cup on Monday night.

Joakim Ehui set up the opening goal when his cross was headed in by Alwayne Jones against one of his former clubs.

The Reds sealed their win in the competition when Jordan Lawal set up Jones for his second goal of the night.

Boro pulled off an upset in the league on Saturday as they ended Bury Town’s unbeaten run with a 1-0 victory.

The crucial goal came after just 11 minutes of the contest when Ukrainian Nicolai Tararov headed in James Burgess’ cross.

Bury Town scored ten times last week against AFC Sudbury so there was no doubts about their ability in front of goal heading into the game.

The hosts started the second half strongly and came close to an equaliser when John Sands forced a good save from goalkeeper Elvijs Putnins.

Simeon Akinola thought he had settled the match with the visitors’ second goal but his strike was ruled out for offside.

Sam Reed had an opportunity for Bury Town but he lobbed the goalkeeper when well placed to find an equaliser.

Dave Anderson’s side had to survive nine minutes of injury time but they managed to hold out and claim a vital three points to take them clear of the bottom sides in the league. Boro face mid-table Canvey Island at Earlsmead this weekend.
