Jack Muldoon scored his first goal at Harrogate since a penalty he had taken on the opening day of play against Doncaster. Harrogate was able to avoid a six-straight home loss following Swindon’s 1-1 draw.
Jake Young, a striker on loan from Bradford who scored his 13th goal for the season in the first half gave away an early lead to their opponents.
Young threatened two times before he opened the scoring. He hit the roof of a stand in the 25th minuet with a long range effort, and then fired across the face the goal. This was after breaking past the home defence of Rod McDonald and Anthony O’Connor on the right side.
Jonathan Mitchell, who was making his debut at home, had little chance of stopping his third attempt – an incredibly powerful 25-yard shot after Dan Kemp passed forward.
In a first half that was open, two Sam Folarin attempts and Abraham Odoh forced Murphy Mahoney to make smart saves on the opposite end.
Odoh was close to scoring again after the interval, but Muldoon equalized midway through second period.
After Folarin and Odoh had traded passes, the 34-year old drilled in a low drive from edge of box off Mahoney’s left upright.
Folarin, who was in a good position to score the winning goal late on but missed the shot at Mahoney when he had gotten clear of the far post.
