A last-minute effort from Sam Castle saw Harmen denied Neasden victory as the visitors earned their first point under new boss Stirling Kay in a belter at Chase Lodge.
Dan Orgel put NWN ahead from the the penalty spot in the first half.
Harmen worked hard to get back in the game and they were awarded a penalty with 10 minutes remaining, however Adam Velleman missed it with a kick Jonny Wilkinson would be proud of.
With a couple of minutes to go Alex Bowman whipped in a delightful ball for Castle to keep up his good scoring form with a simple one-yard tap in. That's now five in five.
NWN boss Stirling Kay told JC Sport: "We dominated for long periods in the first half - the back four were in total control as the half went on and we were looking very likely to score, but Harmen worked hard to stop us on a difficult pitchs.
"We started the second half brightly and got a deserved goal from the penalty spot where the Harmen defender was lucky to stay on the pitch after taking Orgel out when clean through.
"Harmen started to come into the game in the last 15 minutes and put us on the back foot. The equaliser was a lesson learnt that you can't switch off as it only takes a second to score. Credit to Harmen who worked very hard throughout the game to match us and never gave up.
"I am very pleased with the disciplined, hard work and commitment of the squad. Each game we are playing some good football and we are looking better every game."
Harmen joint-player-manager Sam Castle told JC Sport: "We were not at our best today in tough conditions, however we worked hard as a team and got a point. It's not all three, but better than nothing.
"We will keep building and growing as a team and will hopefully be there or there abouts come May. Woodford away next week - the boys will be buzzing."
