FOOTBALL: Clarets rewarded by last-minute own goal
Deeping Rangers remain on course for runner-up spot thanks to goalkeeper Lewis Elsom's last-minute assist.
The Clarets claimed maximum points courtesy of an own goal by Harborough Town number one Tom Cocking's final touch from an indirect free-kick.
David Burton-Jones' early opener had been cancelled out but Josh Moreman levelled nine minutes into the second half.
Manager Michael Goode said: "We deserved the win in the end.
"We gave away two really poor goals from bad decision making.
"The equaliser was a 40-yard lob but we had committed three errors leading up to that.
"Harborough's second goal came from a long punt forward which we didn't deal with then they scored from a rebound.
"I was concerned that this was a hangover from last week's 4-1 defeat at ON Chenecks.
"We changed our shape and dominated the second half.
"We had five or six chances, Henry Dunn hit the post and there were four one-on-ones with the keeper.
"The winner came in bizarre circumstances when the keeper clearly got a touch on the free-kick for an own goal."
Moreman led Deeping's attack in the absence of Scott Mooney and Cameron Johnson, having signed dual registration from Peterborough Sports.
The Clarets are likely to have a full-strength squad for the Easter programme at Rothwell Corinthians on Saturday and back home on Monday against Peterborough Northern Star.
Meanwhile, Deeping's appeal will be heard by an independent panel at Lincolnshire FA over their place in the KitmanUK Knockout Cup final.
They were eliminated from the competition for fielding Tyler Walker as a substitute in the semi-final victory over Daventry Town.
Goode admitted: "I'm not holding out too much hope but we want to make our position clear and see what happens.
"We think the league committee didn't take time to consider all aspects of the rule so we're looking for fairness in terms of interpretation."
