The Coles Park club stay top of the table, but the Blues suffered a battering at home
Haringey Borough are the only club in the Isthmian Premier to boast a 100 per cent record after three games this season following Saturday's 1-0 win at Cheshunt.
Tom Loizou's men made it three consecutive wins to move onto nine points out of a possible nine and go two clear at the summit from Hornchurch, Bowers & Pitsea and Folkestone Invicta.
During a fiery derby, a total of 10 players were booked with six for Borough and then four for Cheshunt, but the visitors kept their cool in the 69th minute to take the points.
A quick counter-attack set Chid Onokwai away and he raced into the area and drilled into the bottom corner to score for the third straight game.
It was a wonderful goal and the difference as the two teams played out the remainder of the local clash in front of 249 spectators with no further goals.
While Borough at sitting pretty at the top of the table, Wingate & Finchley are at the other end after a 5-0 loss to Bognor Regis Town last weekend.

After a goalless first half at the Maurice Rebak Stadium, the floodgates opened in the 49th minute when Tommy Leigh was on target and they never closed for the Blues.
Dan Smith grabbed a brace and Tyrell Mitford and Jimmy Muitt netted on a day to forget for Steve Clark's Wingate following two respectable draws and it leaves them with only two points from three games.
