A 30 yard free-kick by Kieron Pamment, five minutes into added time, earned Horsham sweet revenge for last Saturday’s FA Trophy defeat and took them to within two points of leaders Folkestone Invicta on a soggy afternoon in North London.
There may have been a touch of good fortune about Pamment’s strike, the first of his second spell at the club, as it swung in from the left, missing everyone inside a packed penalty area before skidding off the wet surface and into the net, but there could be no denying the Hornets were the deserved victors.
They took the lead on nine minutes through Rob O’Toole’s composed finish and might have been three or four goals to the good before Haringey levelled with their first effort on goal, just after the half hour mark. It needed a couple of brave saves from ‘keeper George Bentley to maintain parity at the break but Horsham dominated much of the second half and only wasteful finishing prevented them from going back in front.
They had a scare in stoppage time, during which Bentley saved from point blank range and Dylan Merchant cleared off the line, but then Pamment struck to secure the points with what was the last kick of the match.
