Haringey Borough continue their run of home games when they take on Margate in the Isthmian League Premier Division on Saturday.

Tom Loizou's side picked up a 1-0 win over Cray Wanderers in the FA Cup in their last game but have lost their last two Ieague matches.

And despite having home advantage for the fixture, Loizou expects his side to be in for a tough afternoon.

"It's going to be tougher than you think," he said.

"They are flying high and putting together good results.
