Invicta return to North London this weekend looking to make it back to back wins in the capital and 4 unbeaten at the start of 2024.
There has been plenty of action at the Alcaline Stadium this week.
Andy Drury has added to his squad with the signings of midfielder Dean Rance on loan from Scunthorpe United, forward Louis Collins who returns to Cheriton Road following his departure from Eastbourne Borough and midfielder Eddie Allsopp who departed Chatham Town earlier in the month.
Defender Will Moses has joined Ashford United on a 1 month loan as he looks for game time and match fitness while Academy midfielder Brad Walledge who was around the squad over Christmas has joined Canterbury City on a dual registration.
Toby Byron returned to action last weekend following his injury on Boxing Day, Ira Jackson has made 2 appearances from the bench following his injury but Ian Gayle has not featured since Boxing Day, although we hope he may be close to a return to action.
From The Manager
Andy Drury sat down with Invicta TV this week, you can view the interview here:
With the hosts home kit being yellow Invicta will line up in red & white striped shirts with red shorts and socks.
The sides have already met twice this season and have yet to be separated in normal time. Haringey progressed in the FA Trophy following a dramatic 2-2 draw in October before returning in November for a 1-1 draw in the Isthmian Premier Division.
Invicta’s record at Coles Park is poor, we’ve never managed to win in 4 trips. We did go close in the final fixture of the 2021/22 season but a late comeback from Haringey saw us return with a single point from a 4-4 draw. Last season’s trip saw us beaten 3-0
Manager Andy Drury will no doubt be looking to notch a first ever win at White Hart Lane.
Haringey Borough currently sit 20th in the Isthmian Premier Division with 15 points from 24 games.
They have the 2nd worst record in both attack and defence, with only Concord Rangers scoring fewer and only Kingstonian conceding more, both of those sides sat below Haringey in the table.
Matthew Young, who scored against Invicta in the FA Trophy tie, is top scorer with 12 goals this season. Invicta won’t have to worry about the other player who scored that day as left back Michael O’Donoghue has since departed for Hornchurch following the injury sustained by Nathan Green.
Boro have only notched 1 home win in the Isthmian Premier Division so far this season, although that was in their last home game against Canvey Island. They have beaten both Dulwich Hamlet and Tonbridge Angels at home in the FA Cup so aren’t to be taken lightly.
Coles Park is situated on White Hart Lane, from which Tottenham Hotspur’s former stadium takes its name.
There is one covered stand situated above the dressing rooms to provide shelter but thankfully the forecast is for dry weather. Both ends behind the goal are uncovered.
The pitch is 3G.
Always check rail times/strike action before you travel.
Public transport to Coles Park Stadium is fairly simple. Wood Green is the closest London Underground station and is a short ride on the W3 bus from the stadium.
If driving please be aware that the stadium is within the ULEZ.
