Haringey arrived at sunny Hayes Lane to face a Cray side who, like them, had enjoyed FA Cup success a week eariier.

Valery Pajetat made an early save from Karl Dent as the hosts began well, but Georgio Aresti had an effort blocked at the other end and Anthos Solomou shot wide.

Tom Murphy fired into the arms of Pajetat before Borough broke the deadlock on 34 minutes as Dimitri Froxylias cut inside and unleased a 25-yard shot into the top corner.

Solomou headed a free-kick from Froxylias into the arms of Lewis Carey before the break, then sliced wide after the restart.

Joe Taylor shot straight at Pajetat and Dent fired a free-kick over, before Bradley Pritchard headed at the Borough keeper.

Pajetat made a superb save to keep out Dent’s 20-yard free-kick, then pushed another effort over, before Ben Mundele headed against the post.

Cray got back on terms on 73 minutes, though, when a penalty was awarded for a challenge on Taylor, who stroked home the spot-kick.

Murphy fired a late shot into the arms of Pajetat, who also thwarted Tom Carlse before Dent fired a late chance over.
