On the 15th minute The Hatters took the lead through their only real chance of the first half with Tom Elliot flicking the ball through to Sean McConville to make it 1-0 to The Hatters.

The Harriers tested Ormson through several efforts but the young keeper kept the score level.

As County went into the break leading 1-0 there was a general sense of luckiness for The Hatters with only one chance in the first half.

  • Never expected that. Great result, great atmosphere and great attendance. Bit of a break now but are those back to back wins about to happen. God bless JG.

  • Nice to have you back KC and yes an unexpected but cracking result. Never got to hear it on Pure, my lassie moving house, isn’t that what Dad’s are for? So was absolutely gobsmacked to read the result. Has the man injected some passion at last?

  • Jim is slowly turning this round we were the better team I thought and they are in the play off position at the moment……It must be an horrnendous position for Jimbo juggling the finance and shipping players out to ease the wage bill….lets face it if SCFC had properly involved Jim pre admin then we wouldn”t have even gone into admin in the first place, Jimbo is an accountant and he will manage the books well as everyone has to do in life, Barry Hearn is the same at Orient where he runs a financially tight ship, well done Jimbo and thank you.

  • A good result against a good side. The 12th man did its bit as well fantastic support. I was especially pleased with the support for Elliott, hopefully it will do his confidence some good and we may get a few goals out of him. I dont rate the guy but while he is here we must try and get the best out of him and all the players. Connor is turning out to be the find of the season, lets hope we can hang on to him. I was sorry to hear of the passing of Ean Cuthbert. It brought back memories of my very 1st County game as a lad against Bristol Rovers in the cup

  • Ditto NE Elliott is doing his best and it is absolutely pointless and counter productive to get on his back IT WILL NOT HELP HIM AT ALL.
    He does what he can and hopefully with SUPPORT of the fans he may start getting a few goals for us.

  • I seem to remember Dicko getting dogs abuse for a whole season. Jim took the raw unfinished article and help mould him into a great asset. Elliott, who knows? Same ending?
