Brentwood Town vs Harlow Town

Harlow Town remain unbeaten after four games with a 2-1 away win to Brentwood Town at The Brentwood Centre.

Alex Read grabbed the opener within the first minute of the match but Brentwood didn’t respond till the second half and Harlow got the winner 18 minutes from the end to take all three points.

Harlow took the lead after only 30 seconds when a long clearance put Alex Read in and struck the ball on the half volley from outside the box leaving Olly Bowles stranded.

George Smith was replaced by Shane Stamp after a lengthy injury leaving him to limp off in crotches.

Fabian Simms went close to doubling the visitors lead just before the half hour mark from a dangerous free-kick but his header went over.

In injury time, after great play by Sherwin Stanley he played in Alex Akofi who was blatantly body checked by the Harlow Keeper after winning the ball but the referee waved away claims.

Substitute Stamp had the first chance of the second half, a shot from 25 yards which stun the hands of Bowles, down low to his right post.

Brentwood equalised in the 65th minute after a another great move involving Akofi who slotted in Sam Bantick who didn’t panic and cut the ball back to substitute Robbie Rees.

The away side responded eight minutes later after a corner wasn’t cleared, fell to Stamp who fired it across goal for Jared Small to guide it in.

Martyn Stokes had a shot just inside the box as the loose ball dropped to him but it was lashes just over the bar.

Brentwood huffed and puffed in the remaining ten minutes but couldn’t muster a chance to snatch a leveller.
