Haringey Borough’s fight against the drop in Ryman League Division One North was given a major boost after they picked up four points from their two trips on the road in the last week.

First, Rakim Richards’ last-gasp goal secured a precious 3-2 win for Borough at Witham Town on Saturday.

In truth the contest shouldn’t have been settled by a late goal, with the visitors dominating much of the game.

Ishmail Kamara bundled the ball over the line to give Borough a first-half lead, but they were pegged back 14 minutes from time as a shot crept inside the left-hand post to make it 1-1.

Within four minutes Tom Loizou’s side were back in front, though, as Ross Dedman smashed home from close range.

Admirably, the hosts yet again drew level – and they seemed to have secured a point in the process after grabbing a last-minute equaliser.

Richards had other ideas, however, launching a well-flighted effort from around 30 yards out, which looped over the Witham keeper and into the far corner of the net, much to the delight of the travelling Haringey fans.

Borough were involved in another goal bonanza on Tuesday night, as they took a share of the spoils from a six-goal thriller with Dereham Town.

After racing into a 3-1 lead, Loizou’s men were left to ponder what could have been, with two second-half goals in four minutes securing a point for the hosts.

Borough sit 18th in the table as it stands, seven points clear of the relegation zone.
