Boro defended well to gain a good point against the Met Police in a game which I thought was spoilt by a sending off today.
In a game played in unseasonally windy conditions Harrow were on top until the harsh (well thats what I thought, what did did other fans think?) sending off of George Nicholas early in the first half.
That changed the game and for the rest of the match the 10 men of Harrow had to be on the top of their game to get the point . All the team defended well, keeper Luke Williams having another very good game IMO.
There were a couple of half chances for Boro and the Met had plenty of pressure having the one man advantage, so we did ok to get the point.
Frustrating we couldnt take the 3 and I think we would have done if it was not for the red card.
Next up a tough away trip to high flying Tonbridge Angels

Re the sending off incident. Both players were running in the same direction for the ball & both
Threw themselves towards the ball at no time was either player in danger of being injured, the Met no.8 reacted violently & caused a 20 man brawl. This gave the ref.massive problem, he choose to send off the player that made a tackle that he deemed a foul ,not the player that committed violent conduct & caused a massive ruck.

I wasnt there but by the sounds of the match report, it was a bit of a wild tackle from Nicholas and no mention of the opposition player reacting with a punch which was reported on twitter. Good that we picked up two clean sheets at home after a poor second half away at Folkestone.
