Swans returned to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over fellow Middlesex side Harrow Borough. On a sad evening for Swans fans, with the news of the loss of Gordon Harberd, Drax’s squad upped the tempo with a powerful first half performance that saw Max Worsfolds cross turned into the his own goal by Adam Richards. The goal coming just before the break was no more than the Swans deserved as they positively took the game to Borough and had numerous attempts on the opposition goal. Kept out by the woodwork, the agile Harrow keeper and the referee who dissallowed one attempt having spotted Max Worsfold skip narrowly over the line before crossing, the Swans controlled the game. As early as the first minute Swans new loan keeper, Liam Driscoll from Reading FC, showed his class saving an early effort from Borough but from then on it was all Swans.
The second half was again a different story but the Swans came out quickly and Lewis Driver [pictured AKD] immediately doubled the lead 2 minutes after the break. That was the goal that decided the encounter with the Swans just surviving a dangerous 20 minute spell to keep the points despite Adam Richards making amends for his own goal scoring in the 79th minute. Mitchal Gough had a cracking 30 yard free kick saved and Harrow were lucky not concede more to an active Swan attack.
The Swans rode it out and to the end looked as though they could add more to their tally. Three welcome points for Drax and a return to winning ahead of Sunday’s trip to Bognor Regis to face luckless Worthing FC.
