The Ambers are on the road again this weekend as they travel a short distance down the A10 to Tottenham to face Haringey Borough at Coles Park. This is yet another huge game for both sides as they look to fight their way out of relegation trouble.

The Hosts- Haringey Borough

The Borough host Cheshunt on Saturday afternoon raring to go as they haven’t played a match in two weeks. They will be in good spirits as their last match ended in a 1-0 victory over fellow relegation strugglers Margate. A goal from Jorge Djassi-Sambu just after the hour mark was the difference between the two sides.

However, despite that win it has been a poor run of form for the club. The former Ambers manager Tom Loizou’s side have won just one other match in the twelve before that, this came in a 2-1 home win against Canvey Island. While they aren’t in the best of form,  their wins this season have come at home so the Ambers will need to be wary.

Midfielder Matthew Young has been the Borough’s most impressive player this season. The former Leyton Orient academy player has bagged 13 goals in 35 appearances this campaign. He is a very versatile midfielder, capable of playing in central midfield or on the left. The Ambers midfield and defence will have to keep a wary eye on him at the weekend.

The Visitors – Cheshunt

Craig Edwards’ side come into this game with a new lease of life after breaking out of the relegation zone on Tuesday night. The Ambers provided the fans with by far their best performance of the year so far with a huge 3-0 win over Concord Rangers. Second-half goals from Finlay Titchmarsh, Alfie Pendlebury and Nathaniel Orafu meant Cheshunt leapfrogged Margate into 18th place and two points from safety.

The scorer of the first Finlay Titchmarsh has been every consistent for the Ambers since signing from Potters Bar in the summer. However, the full-back had his best performance yet with a superbly taken goal and a well-earned clean sheet. Cheshunt were also entirely dominant in midfield. The trio of Orafu, Miles and Granville were reunited, they completely took control of the match at Parkside.

The manager was delighted with the team’s performance, and he was equally as happy to welcome back Jamie Reynolds to the side. While he didn’t contribute to a goal directly on Tuesday his effort and ability was crucial for the win. Darion Furlong is also expected to start again this weekend after thoroughly impressing on his debut. He only signed for the club on Tuesday morning and was fit enough to make his full debut the same day.

Head-to-Head- Haringey Borough vs Cheshunt

The Borough and the Ambers have faced each other five times recently. Haringey come out on top winning three, Cheshunt have won one and there was one draw. Saturday’s hosts have scored eight goals in those matches, while Cheshunt have scored six.

The most recent fixture between the two sides was earlier in the season, it finished 2-0 to Haringey Borough at Theobalds Lane. Goals from Matthew Young and Arthur Iontton earned their side all three points on a Saturday afternoon in October. The most iconic match between the two sides was back in April 2022 an Ambers promotion season. Cheshunt came out 4-2 winners over Haringey at Coles Park. A brace from Mo Camara and goals from Amadou Kassarate and still Cheshunt midfielder Jamie Reynolds. Ambers fans will be hoping for more of the same at Coles Park this weekend.
