Lewis lifts Hornchurch, but Romford denied

Hornchurch 2 Harrow 0; Enfield Town 1 Romford 1

Two-goal Lewis Smith got Hornchurch’s Ryman Premier Division play-off push back on track last night.

After seeing their last two games at Bridge Avenue postponed due to floodlight failure and a waterlogged pitch, Urchins enjoyed a 2-0 success over Harrow.

Former Fulham youngster Smith struck both goals to end a three-game winless streak for Jimmy McFarlane’s men, breaking the deadlock on the stroke of half-time, then sealing the points midway through the second half.

Romford looked set to claim a vital win over Division One North play-off rivals Enfield Town, until the hosts snatched a last-minute equaliser.

Jack Barry gave Boro – who were beaten 3-0 by Grays and East Thurrock in their two most recent outings, before Saturday’s clash with Waltham Abbey was postponed – a first-half lead at Brimsdown.

And Paul Martin’s men held on to their slender advantage until the 89th minute, when Jordan Lockie claimed a somewhat fortunate leveller for the hosts.
