Bostik Premier: Carshalton Athletic 3 Haringey Borough 1

Haringey Borough suffered a 3-1 loss away to Carshalton Athletic in the Bostik Premier on Saturday.

Tom Loizou’s men were looking to remain on the heels of leaders Dorking Wanderers, but slipped up to allow the pace-setters to move further clear at the summit.

Carshalton took the lead in the 16th minute when Harry Ottoway back-heeled into the path of Ricky Korboa and he placed a curling effort into the bottom corner.

It was 2-0 around 20 minutes later and it was the same combination who created the goal for the Robins.

Ottoway fired a low cross across the face of Valery Pajetet’s goal and Korboa was on hand again to find the net.

Haringey were up against it now, but after recent comebacks, they scented another when they reduced the deficit in the 42nd minute.
