Jack Muldoon rescues rare home point for Harrogate against Swindon

Jack Muldoon’s first goal since an opening-day penalty at Doncaster prevented Harrogate from suffering a sixth straight home defeat following a 1-1 draw against Swindon.

The visitors had earlier taken a first-half lead courtesy of on-loan Bradford striker Jake Young’s 13th goal of the season.

Young had threatened twice before opening the scoring in the 25th minute – hitting the roof of the stand with a long-range effort and firing across the face of the goal after bursting past home defenders Rod McDonald and Anthony O’Connor down the right flank.

But his third effort – a thumping 25-yard strike following Dan Kemp’s forward pass – gave home debutant Jonathan Mitchell little chance as it rocketed into his top-left corner.

An open first half also saw two Sam Folarin efforts and Abraham Odoh force Murphy Mahoney into smart saves at the other end.

After the break, Odoh went close again before Muldoon levelled midway through the second period.

The 34-year-old drilled a low edge-of-the-box drive in off Mahoney’s left-hand upright after Folarin had exchanged passes with Odoh.

Folarin should have gone on to win the game late on, but shot weakly at Mahoney after racing clear on the away goal.
