Tom Loizou hoping improving side won’t slip up at Ship Lane against basement club in the Bostik North

Haringey Borough boss Tom Loizou has backed his team to approach Wednesday’s Bostik North match with Romford in the right manner.

The Coles Park club remain the only unbeaten team in the division still after earning a 2-1 win at home to leaders Dereham Town last weekend.

Anthony McDonald fired a 90th minute winner for Borough and they’ll hope to keep hold of their record when they visit bottom of the table Romford tomorrow.

“It will be a banana skin because these are the games we normally lose, but if we approach the game like we have for the last two then we haven’t got a problem,” Loizou told Haringey Borough TV.

“We beat the team that is top of the league on Saturday and we outplayed them. I felt they had three chances – one they scored from – but we had several opportunities.

“We made the wrong choices in the box, but the players dug in and I have so much praise for all of them at the moment.

“They are doing stuff which is even beyond what I feel is capable, so all credit to the players.”

After beating Harrow Borough and Dereham in recent weeks, Borough’s confidence is sky high.

Loizou knows their unbeaten record is a carrot for all opposition teams though and will be warning his players what to expect at Ship Lane.

He added: “It can be a little bit difficult when you have that tag around your neck because it makes you a target.

“Everyone wants to be the first team to beat the team that is unbeaten, so as long as we stay unbeaten it’s lovely, but in the same breath the sooner we lose that tag the better.”

Haringey sit third in the table with 30 points from their opening 12 games and could go top with a win at Romford.
