Wroxham were denied a share of the points after a late goal condemned them to defeat.
Evidence of new boss Damian Hilton's changes at Trafford Park were evident, with debuts for Nick Bailey, a new signing from Great Yarmouth Town, at left back, and Liam Fryatt, who has signed on dual registration terms from King's Lynn Town.
The hosts had the best of the early half-chances, with Jamie Forshaw hitting the side-netting, but there was little to choose between the sides.
Jack Garrod tested keeper Mikheil Kharshiladze just before the interval while Haringey managed to clear the ball after a goalmouth scramble.
Two minutes into the second half Wroxham had a good chance to break the deadlock. Forshaw's half volley from the edge of the box was palmed away, and Garrod pulled the follow-up wide.

Haringey had chances of their own, Ishmail Kamara just failing to get on the end of a cross and a few minutes later seeing a header brilliantly saved by Elliot Pride.
Perhaps the best chance of the half fell to Stephen Taylor with 20 minutes remaining, but he headed over from six yards.

Six minutes from time, Haringey sub Alexander Cathline settled the issue after latching onto a through-ball and beating Pride.
Wroxham have now lost two in a row and will be hoping to avoid a third defeat next week away to Barkingside, who sit one place below them in the league. Wroxham remain in 22nd place in the table.
