REPORT: Harrogate brush Hatters aside

County were easily brushed aside by a clinical Harrogate side, inflicting their heaviest National League North defeat in over two seasons.

Two goals either side of half-time were enough to easily see off the Hatters, who were given brief respite in the first half through a Chris Smalley goal.


All goals appeared preventable or came about via a mistake from the away side, as four different Town scorers put themselves on the scoresheet.

Gannon will be hoping to put a nightmare four days behind him and the team, after successive losses to Southport and now Harrogate.
