Bostik Premier: Haringey Borough 3 Bishop’s Stortford 1
Haringey Borough secured their seventh consecutive win in the Bostik Premier on Monday with a 3-1 success over Bishop’s Stortford.
After seeing off Folkestone Invicta at home on Saturday, Tom Loizou’s men again impressed at Coles Park, this time in front of a crowd of 296.
Borough came out of the traps fast and went ahead after 11 minutes through in-form midfielder Charley Barker.
The ex-Leyton Orient youth-team captain controlled a shot inside the area and added the required finish to make it 1-0 to the home side.

It remained that way until the break, but four minutes after the restart the Coles Park club were handed the chance to double their lead.
Stortford’s Sam Robbins committed a foul inside the area and Joel Nouble scored from 12-yards despite the best efforts of away custodian Calum Kitscha.

There was virtually an immediate reply from the Hertfordshire club though, as former Heybridge Swifts attacker Luke Callander headed home Jamie Cureton’s cross in the 52nd minute to make it 2-1.
Both teams knew the next goal was crucial and fortunately for Haringey it went to them 14 minutes later.
Debutant Olumide Durojaiye raced through on goal and fired through Kitscha’s legs to make it 3-1 with 66 on the clock.
It finished up this way and the result moves Borough up to second in the table for at least 24 hours.
Haringey have 33 points from 18 games, but Tonbridge Angels could overtake them this evening with a win at Corinthian-Casuals.
