Hornchurch suffered a second consecutive defeat in the Isthmian Premier League as they lost 1-0 to Cheshunt at Bridge Avenue. 

An 81st minute strike from Amadou Kassarate helped Craig Edward’s side seal the three points as the Urchins continue to endure an injury crisis. 

Haringey sealed a 1-1 draw away to promotion hopefuls Bishop’s Stortford on Tuesday evening at the ProKit Stadium. 

Defender Scott Mitchell opened the scoring in the 72nd minute as he turned home a corner at the near post to give Borough a 1-0 lead. 

That was Mitchell’s second goal in as many games as he begins to shine for Haringey. 

The hosts were level 10 minutes later when Anthony Church picked out Jake Cass inside the area who turned and fired low into the far corner. 

Earlier in the match Haringey were awarded a penalty when the visitors pounced upon a poor pass in midfield and after a long ball forward Jake Giddens collided with Alfred Bawling.
