Harpenden Town won their fourth league game in a row with a smooth 3-1 victory away to Harefield United.

The result put Harpenden back up to eighth in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One.

Manager Danny Plumb said: “That’s four in a row and we needed that with two cup games coming up so a great result and a really professional performance.

“I am delighted for the team.”

Harpenden took the lead after 20 minutes when Harry Hunt floated in a free kick headed on by Charlie Gould for Ben Warren to slot the ball into the corner of the goal.

Warren could have made it two three minutes later when he blasted a Phil Smeaton cross just over.

But Harefield drew level when Adam Willis scored direct from a free-kick.
