Newport Pagnell Town 1-0 Harborough Town
Future Lions United Counties League Premier Division
Saturday 12th January 2019

Harborough Town arrived at Willen Road looking to repeat their 5-1 dismantling of the Swans that occurred the last time the two sides met. The opening 10 minutes lined this game up to be an exciting fixture, with both teams finding their footing in the game. Harborough had the first chance when Tony Bartlett fired in a dangerous free kick from the far left, Ben Williams was just inches away from directing the ball goal bound. Newport also proved an attacking threat, with Bee’s goalkeeper Glen Giles having to heroically put his body on the line to stop Dom Lawless powering through on goal. Both defensive units then tightened up and the game came to a virtual stalemate with neither side able to make any headway. The Swan’s the next chance of the half came in the thirty eighth minute when Tom Liversedge blasted his first-time effort over the bar.

The strong defensive efforts continued into the second half, with much of play being limited to the middle third of the park and frequent possession changes as neither side managed to assert control. In the sixty sixth minute Newport finally broke down Harborough’s stout backline, Dom Lawless fired the hosts in front with a venomous effort. The Bees piled on the pressure in search of an equaliser in the closing minutes, having a strong presence in the Swans half. However, they were unable to break through the resolute Newport defence, with their best chance falling to a wild Alex Morris volley as one of the final touches of the game. In a game that could have gone either way the slim margin of victory was more than welcome as was the clean sheet.
