Grier's Guide to Haringey

When: Monday 30th September, 7.45pm kick-off.

The town: Haringey Borough play in Tottenham, best known globally as being the home of their near neighbours Spurs.

The ground: Coles Park Stadium, White Hart Ln, London N17 7JP. The main stand is well-elevated giving a good view over the pitch and there's a covered terrace alongside it. There's not so much on the other three sides of the ground though. Haringey have a 3G playing surface.

Directions: The ground is close to the North Circular, which won't be much fun during Monday evening rush hour. You can park at the ground. By public transport, head to Wood Green on the Piccadilly Line from where it's a short ride on the W3 bus or a walk of just over a mile along White Hart Lane.

Our record there: Our only visit came at the tail end of last season when they strolled past Kim Harris' Ks side 2-0. In 1965 we visited White Hart Lane to play what was presumably not a first choice Spurs X1 in the London Challenge Club, drawing 1-1 before losing the replay at Richmond Road a week later.

Recent form: Borough missed out on the promotion in the playoffs last season but have made another strong start, sitting third in the league at time of writing with just one defeat to their name. A 5-1 win over Brightlingsea particularly caught the eye.

Players to watch: Anthos Solomou, a right-sided player capped 13 teams by Cyprus, grabbed a hat-trick in that win over Brightlingsea. Midfielder Georgios Aresti also has a couple of Cyprus cups.

Crowd: Haringey's recent successes have bolstered their crowds so expect a turnout of at least 400. The fans they brought to our game in Tolworth were among the noisiest to visit KGF all season.

Drinking: There are four pubs to choose from around Wood Green tube station, or the Westbury nearer to Turnpike Lane proved popular last season.

Food: Again, the area around Wood Green will give you your widest selection, with various fast food options, as there isn't much on the walk to the ground along White Hart Lane
