Another defeat for Harrowby means they now have to make up 13 points on Boston with just five games remaining in order to escape the relegation zone. Both teams struggled to find any early goal threat until Harrowby debutant Luke Burrell came close after twenty two minutes with a low shot that went just wide. Chances remained at a premium but Star started to get on top as half time approached, creating a number of half chances.
The visitors upped their tempo in the second half introducing a second striker in Jezz Goldson-Williams. After 53 minutes a Goldson-Williams shot was half saved by Joe Christopher before being cleared off the line. The opening goal came in the 59th minute when a Star corner into the box was headed clear only to be driven back into the area. The ball eluded a host of players on its way to Matt Barber who turned it into the net from close range. Star continued to force the pace with Harrowby only managing an occasional counter attack. Harrowby held firm defensively until the 83rd minute when centre back Anderson Uduvie fouled Goldson-Williams just inside the penalty area. Jake Sansby stepped up to slot the penalty kick past Christopher to double Star’s advantage. Harrowby were punished again three minutes into stoppage time when a long ball into the box from the right from the excellent Goldson-Williams found its way to Jake Mason at the far post who made no mistake.
