Haringey Borough boss Tom Loizou said he thought the 2-1 scoreline in his side’s FA Trophy win over Canvey Island on Saturday flattered their opponent.

Athos Solomou gave Borough the lead before half-time and Dimitris Froxylias doubled their advantage in the second half.

Canvey Island did get a goal back but Haringey advanced into the third qualifying round to play Hemel Hempstead at home.

Loizou was impressed with his side's performance and said: "I thought we played well on the day.

"There was a lot of football being played, we kept and moved the ball really well.
