HARROW Borough boss Dave Anderson is under no illusions about the task facing his giant-slaying side – despite the Reds claiming several big scalps in recent weeks, writes Alex Ward.
Boro have torn apart the form book in their last two outings by recording back-to-back victories against Kingstonian and Ryman Premier leaders Whitehawk.
It is an impressive feat for a side just seven points above the drop zone and has gone a long way to easing the pressure on the Earlsmead club.
But despite claiming the bulk of their points from top-half opposition, Anderson attributes such triumphs to the vagaries of the division rather than to any special formula.
“Well the results sum the league up more than us,” admitted Anderson.
“I’ve said all season: every game in this division you can win. And you can lose. It’s very tight. I think it’s just a league where you can’t pick a result. That’s how it is. For us it’s about points, not who we’ve beaten, and to take six points from the last two games is enormous really.”
Harrow travel to basement side Thurrock on Saturday and Anderson insists that maintaining a pragmatic outlook is essential if they are to continue their climb away from the depths of the division.
“We know Saturday’s a big test,” the Boro boss continued. “People will say that we should beat Thurrock, but that’s not how it works. It’s every bit as easy to lose as it is to win.”
Meanwhile, Anderson confirmed that Michael Peacock should return against Hendon next following a knee injury.
