The two clubs have enjoyed some memorable battles this season and Saturday’s clash could be another

Valery Pajetet will be aiming to keep another clean sheet on Saturday when Haringey Borough host Heybridge Swifts in the Bostik North.

The goalkeeper has been in excellent form since coming back from a torn calf and last conceded on February 10 at leaders Hornchurch (2-1 loss).

Pajetet didn’t have much to do on Tuesday night at Ware, but still kept his fourth shut-out in a row in the 0-0 draw.

It is his sixth clean sheet from the last nine games he has played following a calf injury in mid-November, but on Saturday that record will come under threat.

Heybridge are currently in eighth position on 55 points, but due to success in both the FA Cup and FA Trophy they have games in hand over all sides in the division.

Swifts have only completed 32 fixtures in comparison to Borough’s 37 and so the clash at Coles Park is a big one for both clubs.
