Bostik Premier: Merstham 0 Haringey Borough 0

Haringey Borough and Merstham could not be separated in the Bostik Premier at the weekend with the promotion-chasing sides producing a goalless draw.

Tom Loizou’s men were probably the happier of the teams at full-time with their spot in second still assured.

Both clubs went into the fixture knowing the importance of a victory, but also aware of how damaging a defeat could be.

It was therefore perhaps not a surprise to see a tight and cagey affair occur from the off in Surrey.

Chances were few and far between and the first 45 ended goalless with no real moves made in this game of chest.

The second-half followed a similar pattern and despite a good opening for the hosts’ late on, it finished all square.
