A wind-assisted goal by Luke Callander, and a late goal from Craig Parker, helped AFC Sudbury to a hard-earned three points at Harlow, in a Ryman North clash this afternoon.

Harlow dominated the first half, but only had a goal from ex-Bury Town front-runner Joe Benjamin to show for their efforts.

Benjamin virtually walked the ball into the net, from just a few feet out, after Alex Read’s initial shot had struck the under-side of the bar.

Harlow missed several chances, and they were made to pay when Callander’s opportunist 20-yarder got caught in the wind, completing deceiving home keeper David Hughes for a 42nd minute equaliser.

Sudbury had by far the better of the second-half opportunities, and their pressure finally paid off with an 88th minute winner from Parker.

Keepere Hughes blocked Callander’s low drive, and the follow-up by substitute Jordan Blackwell hit the foot of the near post, but Parker was quickest to react as he slotted into an empty nety.
