Haringey Borough continue their FA Cup run on Saturday with the visit of Staines Town in the second qualifying round.

Tom Loizou's side beat Herne Bay 3-0 in the first qualifying round to set up the home tie with Staines and go into the tie off the back of a 1-1 Isthmian League Premier Division draw with Cray Wanderers.

The manager is hoping his side can continue to advance as they look to replicate their FA Cup run last season, when they reached the first round proper.

"It will be a tough game. We played them in pre-season and it was a 3-3 draw," Loizou said.

"One of our players was injured in that game and is still out now. He's still got the scars on his shins.
