Town up to 4th

By

Enfield Town 4 Harlow Town 1

Town's barren run looks to be behind them after two confidence-boosting victories in four days. Now there is an enforced break from ation until Boxing Day, when the side will have to start over in terms of momentum, but by then a more indicative league position will be evident, with a number of the leading clubs having games in hand.

Harlow had their moments but this was a comprehensive home win. After Aaron Greene had put the first chance of the game wide of the post for the hosts, there were howls of protest from the travelling fans after home keeper Joe Wright had dived at the feet of Christian Scales and referee Tim Donnellan had waved play on. Unfazed, Town soon opened the scoring when Greene, initially with his back to goal, had turned neatly anti-clockwise and steered the ball past Hawks' keeper Josh Bexon with his right foot in the eighth minute.

The Hawks managed to haul themselves back into the game in 34th minute after winning the ball on the Town right midway inside the hosts' half. Yanick Kissi fed Scales, who played the ball inside for Tom Hitchcock to convert accurately into the top corner past Wright's left hand.

Ryan Blackman fired wide and Mickey Parcell was blocked by Bexon, who also denied Muhammadu Faal twice. Firstly, the former Kingstonian man headed Billy Bricknell's cross from the left straight at the Harlow stopper, and shortly afterwards he was unlucky when Bexon reacted well with an instinctive tip-over from another header, this time at the near post from Parcell's corner. Then, after Scales had been denied by a fine tackle from Sam Hatton following Hitchcock's pass, the home side went back into the lead a couple of minutes before the break through a Bricknell penalty after Faal had been impeded in the box by Paul Rodgers.

Half-time: Enfield Town 2 Harlow Town 1

Harlow made a triple substitution at half-time, but Greene, who went on to win the Town Man-of-the-Match award, was soon stinging Bexon's fingers after the restart with a fierce drive. A couple of chances came and went at either end, but the points were effectively sealed in the 64th minute. Following a short corner on the left, Parcell drove into the Hawks' box and forced another save from Bexon, but Bricknell was on hand to snaffle the rebound.

In the 77th minute another Greene corner caused some consternation in the visitors' penalty area, and debutant Marc Weatherstone forced the ball over the line at the far post. There was still time for Bricknell to cut in from the left in search of his first Town hat-trick, but he was denied by Bexon, who grabbed the prolific striker's right foot shot into his midriff relatively comfortably.
