Bostik Premier: Corinthian-Casuals 3 Haringey Borough 1

Haringey Borough suffered a third consecutive defeat in the Bostik Premier after losing 3-1 at Corinthian-Casuals on Tuesday.

Days after reaching the first round of the FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history, Tom Loizou’s men were given a rude awakening at King George’s Field.

Things started promisingly for Borough when Mark Kirby headed them into a lead after only 10 minutes.

It was not a sign of things to come, however, as Casuals equalised just before the half an hour mark through Warren Mfula.

Another goal occurred before the break and crucially it went to the hosts as Juevan Spencer beat Valery Pajetet to make it 2-1 at the interval.

The fourth goal of the game was always set to be key and it went to Casuals as Mu Mann made it 3-1 in the 66th minute.

Borough are now 18th in the standings and only two points above the relegation zone
