MJSL: Haroldeans primed for title party

    Haroldeans look set for a weekend of celebrations after moving to within a point of the MJSL title following a 2-2 draw with Hyde Park Rovers.

    The Merseysiders were forced to come from behind as Bobby Abrams scored against his former club in the last minute to secure a draw and deny Rovers a hard-fought victory.

    Ivan Gee's men have 46 points from their 18 games and are nine points clear of rivals Oakhill, who would have to win all three games and hope the Merseysiders lose their next two fixtures.

    With Haroldeans also enjoying a huge goal difference advantage, the Liverpool-based side will be hot favourites to confirm their crown against Crumpsall this weekend.

    Gee's side had hoped to wrap the title up as soon as possible but Rovers have already shown they are no pushovers this season under manager David Domb.

    Rovers were forced to field a side without the influential Harley Patoff, goalkeeper Simon Falk as well as leading marksman Oli Grant.

    But they were just seconds away from victory before Abrams' late, late show.

    Despite forging ahead through Harris' strike, Haroldeans were given a rough ride with the Leeds students overturning the deficit to lead 2-1.

    But with just two league defeats to their name all season, Haroldeans were not about to tarnish their record further and Abrams netted his 20th of the season late on to leave his side within touching distance of the title.
