[Haskell-cafe] matching

I have a matching problem... I am wanting to identify whether or not a string is an opening substring of another (ignoring leading spaces). I have this:
word is a single word and str is a string.
match :: String -> String -> (Bool, String)match word str                   | if removeSpace str `elem` (removeSpace word) ++ rest = (True, rest)                  | otherwise == (False,str)                      where rest = str
Any help?
