Haringey Borough booked their place in the next round of the Buildbase FA Trophy with a win over Horsham, but Wingate & Finchley were held to a draw by Hayes & Yeading United.

Tom Loizou's Haringey had hit the headlines a week earlier when their FA Cup fourth qualifying round tie with Yeovil was abandoned following allegations of racism.

Borough were 1-0 down at the time, after Rhys Murphy converted from the penalty spot, but walked off after goalkeeper Valery Pajetat and Coby Rowe were targetted.

The two sides are due to meet again on Tuesday and Borough will go into the rescheduled fixture in positive mood after their 3-0 success over Horsham.

Michael Ademiluyi opened the scoring at Coles Park midway through the first half, with Chid Onokwai doubling their advantage just before half time.

Jorge Djassi-Sambu added a third goal just before the hour mark to ensure Haringey's victory.

Meanwhile, north London neighbours Wingate will have to try again after a 1-1 draw at the Maurice Rebak Stadium.
