Haringey Borough had their match abandoned due to the floodlights going out in the 63rd minute - despite being 2-0 up and looking set to make it five consecutive victories in the Bostik Premier Division.

Borough got off to a flying start in the match as they looked to continue their good form but it was reportedly a power cut that brought the game to an early finish at Coles Park.

The hosts had just got control of the match as Joseph Staunton netted in the 51st minute and only two minutes later Chinedu McKenzie doubled his side’s lead.

But it wasn’t to be and they will now make the trip to Kingstonian on Saturday.

Haringey Borough: Pajetet, Olufemi, O’Donoghue, Richards, Kirby, Rowe, Staunton, Barker, Nouble, McKenzie.

Unused subs: Stone, Byfield. McDonald, Mitchell, Sappleton.

Merstham: Tangara, Osborne, Bird, Harrison, Henriques, Hutchings, Kavanagh, Beaney, Davies (Hayden-Smith 63), Figueira, Samuels.
