THURROCK’S five match unbeaten run came to an end at Harlow Town.

Ronnie Winn and Lewwis Spence got on the scoresheet but Fleet lost 3-2 to the Hawks, who played the majority of the Isthmian Premier League clash with 10 men.

Harlow broke the deadlock inside 10 minutes as Fabion Simms found the bottom corner of the net after a goalmouth scramble.

However, Robbie Martin was shown a straight red card following a late challenge with just 15 minutes on the clock.

As a result, Harlow were forced to play more than 75 minutes with a numerical disadvantage.

And Thurrock got back on level terms just past the half hour mark as Winn converted after being put through on goal.

The game was turned on its head two minutes before the break as Spence was found in space inside the penalty area and he drilled his strike into the bottom corner from 15 yards out.

However, the 10 men drew level on 58 minutes as Christian Scales scored direct from a corner.

Hawks regained their lead with 16 minutes remaining as Jared Small latched onto a long ball forward and blasted his effort into the roof of the net.

Thurrock were unable to get back on level terms and remain in 13th place in the Isthmian Premier League standings.

Thurrock: McNamara, Morgan, Sutton, Peter, Clark, Goode (Brown 68), Dunn, Spence, Stimson, Winn, Nouble (Ogunrinde 88)
