Harrow Borough v Enfield Town

Recommended Posts

Despite heavy rain, after a mid-morning pitch inspection, todays League fixture against Harrow Borough at Earlsmead Stadium, is expected to go ahead, subject to there not being a deluge before kick off.

Town have already played Harrow twice this season at the QE2 Stadium, beating their Middlesex rivals 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup, and 3-0 in the League on New Year's Day.

Todays third encounter will be far from a pushover, and Town will need to build on their recent improved performances and results, if we are to collect maximum points on this wet Bank Holiday afternoon. Good luck to Andy and the boys!  COYT

Hmmm! There are good days and bad days in football, and this was definitely one of the latter. Having held the hosts to 0-0 at the interval, and created a number of chances in the first half, it is very disappointing to concede five second half goals to another team in the lower half of the table.

Where did it all go so badly wrong? Was it down to woeful defending in tricky conditions, or did we simply lose our focus in the second half, ending up out-fought, out-thought, and by the finish out-played?

Frustrating for everyone, particularly the loyal Town faithful who witnessed this unexpected heavy defeat. It happens, but we will certainly need to dust ourselves down very quickly, and respond with improvement against Dorking on Thursday evening, and promotion-chasing Billericay at the QE2 Stadium next Saturday.

Unfortunately, I had hoped to get back to seeing at least one game this weekend but because of the weather I thought it better to leave it a bit longer. Saturday's result was encouraging but I have to agree with AndyE, it says something that we greet a 5-0 defeat with " We can't be relegated" although as things currently stand it is thankfully true.


Of course, based on previous experience, we must still wait and see what changes those running the new leagues try to make. The lawyers are no doubt already preparing their briefs for the numerous appeals for submission to the FA. Hardly a year goes by when this doesn't happen.  


Getting back to the game, I was surprised to see that again Hope didn't make the starting line-up after what CD wrote about his performance when he came on Saturday. Also that  Quarrington-Carter did not make  the bench after all he was brought back by AL from Cheshunt for a reason. Presumably, AL played Martin in the Central Defence. I bet that added to it's mobility.


It would be helpful to read answers to the questions raised by LHampton.

They would be interesting to hear as it will shed a light as to whether AL has in fact got to grips with what is required so that the club can go forward next year.

Oh dear:( Agree Littlehampton, this can’t be dwelled on for to long, need to accept it and move on. However they do need to recognise whatever went wrong and not repeat it! What was the difference between this game and the previous more promising games? Players? Formations?

Don’t lose heart people, I’ve been enjoying the more positive forum recently, so let’s just hope they return to how they’ve been playing recently and put this down to a game we will forget and never repeat!!

What a bizarre game. I thought we look bright in the first half; played with lots of width and sadly failed to finish. I thought we were unlucky not to turnaround 2 up.. then conceded 5 goals in a half ! I am assuming that was the first time that has happened since Runcorn away !



Enfield Town have NEVER played Runcorn.

And that’s the good news of the day?

As other clubs were throwing away money we couldn't afford and we had a new manager and a quickly built new squad for the season our aim was to stay in this league plus a cup run. Job done and next season we can move on which we need to.

I really did not see that coming after our first half performance which was bright and positive. We just lacked the finishing touch (again). The second half was atrocious. A rare mistake from Joe Wright for the first goal but after that the team folded completely.


I fail to see what Bradley Wadkins is offering the team currently? He missed 2 guilt edged chances along with Ryan Blake who should also have scored.


Towards the end it appeared that we were so disjointed it was far too easy for HB. Another 10 minutes and I have no doubt it would have gone on to become 6 or 7.


Positives? Not many although Aaron Greene again looked assured at left back.
