Harrogate Town 3-2 Havant & Waterlooville

Harrogate held on to top spot in the National League after beating Havant & Waterlooville in an entertaining game at Wetherby Road.

Nicke Kabamba opened the scoring for Havant in the sixth minute when Josh Huggins won a header that fell to the striker, who ran into the area before drilling a low shot past James Belshaw.

But hosts Harrogate were back on terms thanks to Callum Howe's towering header.

Town took the lead when Dominic Knowles poked home from George Thomson's corner before Jack Muldoon added the third five minutes later with a tap-in.

Karamba gave the Hawks a lifeline in the 63rd minute with his second goal of the match after he capitalised on a defensive mistake.
