FC Halifax Town progressed to the FA Trophy Fifth Round on penalties following a 2-2 draw away at Harrow Borough.

Town had the ball in the back of the net first, however it was disallowed. Golden’s free kick was whipped in from the left hand side and Festus Arthur tucked it away, but the referees whistle cut-short the Town celebrations.

The Shaymen did take the lead just minutes before the break. A quick throw from Jack Senior found Harvey Gilmour inside the box and Town’s number 20 hooked a cross in towards Harker. Harrow were able to head clear but the follow up clearance only found Harker inside the box and the striker fired the ball low into the bottom left corner.

Harrow pulled back level with an incredible free kick after 66 minutes. Arthur gave away a free kick 40-yards out after a foul on Billy Leonard. Moore hit it and it flew past Johnson into the top right corner.

With less than 10 minutes to go, Town had the ball in the back of the net again. Gilmour delivered a great corner to the back post, but the referee awarded a free kick as Arthur headed home.

Town managed to regain the lead with less than five minutes to go. Golden was fouled 40 yards out and Gilmour slid a great pass from the free kick to Harker who bagged his second of the night.

Deep in injury time and the hosts were back level. Harrow won a corner which was headed clear by Gilmour but the clearance fell to Moore who powered a strike in off the post to make it 2-2 and his second of the night.

Harker, Dieseurvwe, Milli Alli, Clarke, Stott, and Keane netted from the spot as Town won 5-6 on penalties.

Maidenhead United await Town in the next round of the FA Trophy on Saturday 11th February.

Town will travel to Oldham Athletic on Saturday in the Vanarama National League, 3pm kick-off
