AFC Dunstable were held to a 1-1 draw at Harlow Town in their Southern League Division One Central clash on Saturday.

With 12 minutes gone, Jack Harvey had a header cleared off the line from Newman Carney’s free kick.

Simon-Peter Omooba was a constant threat for the Hawks, firing wide, before Ben Farrell missed a golden chance for the visitors.

Harlow took the lead on 40 minutes when a swirling cross evaded keeper Jamie Head and fell to Marcus Marku who fired home.

Carney was unlucky not to level the scores just before half time when his superb 25-yard drive hit the post.

Five minutes into the second half Lauren Luke was given his marching orders for a second foul on Silford.

The numbers were evened up on the hour mark, Ben Farrell shown a harsh red card for a late tackle.

Silford drew AFC level on 66 minutes though when he fired home a superb half volley from Carney’s corner.

Nathan Frater headed inches wide, while Silford and substitute Jermaine Hall were just off target as the spoils were shared.
