Harlow are back in league action on Tuesday evening as they welcome Lowestoft Town to the Harlow Arena looking for a victory after a narrow 2-1 defeat to National League side York City in the FA Trophy on Saturday afternoon. Their opponents arrive one place below them in table, whilst playing twice more than the Hawks, with both teams locked on 38 points going into the fixture. It’s been no win in three for the visitors, losing two, including a 2-0 home defeat to title chasing opposition Havant and Waterlooville, their latest league result.

Harlow will be looking for their first win of the new year after two draws against Canvey Island and Wingate and Finchley respectively before the defeat to York on saturday. Harlow will also be aware that this will be a difficult task and can’t be complacent going into the game. There is little to split these two sides, even though Harlow’s home record of nine wins in 12 matches is impressive to say the least, stats won’t count for anything, despite the visitors only winning four of the last fourteen on the road, their last success coming in December against Kingstonian. Lowestoft will be more than ready for this encounter. Striker Jamie Reed will be thinking about his hat trick that helped his team crush Harlow 4-0 on the reverse fixture earlier on in the league in October.

With Harlow giving a their utmost best on saturday in terms of effort and work rate, manager Danny Chapman may consider a couple of changes to the starting eleven. Lawrence Yiga and Syrus Gordon may come into the starting eleven, after starting the cup match on the bench. Junior Dadson came on as a sub on saturday and made an impact down the right side. However, this game might be too soon for him to start after his long term injury, therefore he may be back on the bench and eased back into the first team action. Meanwhile for Lowestoft, Jamie Waite, Jamie Forshaw and Ryan Jarvis all pushing for starts, while dangerman Jake Reed will be looking to add to his tally of fourteen goals come tuesday evening.
