We’ve reached the final home game of the season and it’s a huge one in our play-off hopes as we welcome Haringey Borough to the Pan.
Easter Monday saw us pick up a huge derby day victory over Bognor Regis Town at Nyewood Lane. Two goals a piece from Ryan Gondoh and Joe Taylor ensured the Rooks kept their play-off hopes alive for another week.
The two goals from Joe Taylor also meant that he reached 36 for his tally this season in all competitions, a club record for most goals in a season by a single player.
Now the attention turns to Saturday with just two points separating us and Cray Wanderers who currently occupy the final play-off spot in fifth.
The Borough sit comfortably in mid-table and will simply be hoping for a strong finish to their own season as they come to East Sussex on Saturday.
Their away form this season is also solid with almost 50% of their points coming on their travels. This included a 2-2 draw away to Enfield Town on Easter Monday that went a long way to keeping our fight for the top 5 in the balance.
What’s more they’ve lost just twice in their previous seven fixtures which has included wins over Margate, Kingstonian and Herne Bay.
Head to Head
We’ve met with the Borough on seven previous occasions, coming out on top four of those times with one draw.
Haringey’s two wins over us were in the first two meetings, in 2018 and 2019 respectively. We’re unbeaten vs. them since then which included a 2-1 win in our reverse fixture this season.
