FOR THE third year running, Owen Brown's Vauxhall Motors were left frustrated on their visit to Wetherby Road.
Ironically they had enjoyed a slice of luck in the early stages of this Nationwide Conference North encounter when home defender Bass headed beyond the reach of his own keeper after 12 minutes from Duffy's free kick.
But from then on, Motors' early season frustrations came flooding back to deny them a fourth consecutive victory. They had dominated proceedings from the first whistle and looked much the more energetic side, yet in only Harrogate's second threat on the visitors goal they drew level.
Holland slid in at the far post to convert Lennon's headed flick on from a measured cross from Grant out on the right in the 21st minute.
Just after the half hour mark, the Motormen were first denied a blatant penalty and then had a perfectly good goal ruled out.
Harrogate took a totally undeserved lead on the hour with another quality goal when Grant picked out a superb cross for the inrushing Holland to head powerfully home.
