Tom Loizou’s men will aim to build momentum ahead of their FA Cup clash on October 20

Haringey Borough switch their attention to the Bostik Premier for the next week after mixed success in cup competitions over the past few days.

The Coles Park club will make the trip to basement club Burgess Hill Town on Saturday looking to put together another unbeaten run.

After visiting West Sussex, Tom Loizou’s men will then return to the capital on Monday (October 15) for a clash at home to 16th-placed Carshalton Athletic.

Borough go into the games following a win and a defeat over the past week to a couple of former Bostik North rivals.

On Saturday, Haringey had to work hard to progress into the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup following a 2-1 victory over AFC Sudbury.

The Suds, who ply their trade in the Bostik North, opened the scoring in the 17th minute as Michael O’Donoghue scored an own-goal.

Haringey responded with 39 played, however, as Chinedu McKenzie was alert at a corner and fired home to ensure it was level at the break.

It didn’t take McKenzie long before he doubled his tally for the game and Borough’s with what proved to be the winner in the 57th minute.

Another corner caused Suds problems and Scott Mitchell’s effort was deflected into the net by McKenzie to give them a 2-1 win and £15,000 in prize money.

Loizou’s team will play host to Poole Town in the fourth qualifying round on October 20 looking to make it through to the first round proper.

Borough did suffer a defeat in a different cup competition on Tuesday night away to Bowers & Pitsea, who also play in the Bostik North.

Haringey visited Len Salmon Stadium for a Velocity Trophy first round tie, but went down 3-1 despite Michael Ademiluyi’s 10th-minute opener.

Quentin Monville levelled for Bowers five minutes later and a brace from Max Cornhill sent them into the next round where they will visit Bostik Premier side Wingate & Finchley next on a date yet to be confirmed.

For Haringey, they will look to return to winning ways on Saturday, although they did put out a much-changed starting XI on Tuesday.
