Hornchurch goalkeeper Sam Mott believes their 1-1 draw against Tilbury was their worst performance of the season.

The long-serving Urchins shot-stopper returned to the starting line-up after missing out last weekend due to injury and his side had to settle for a point after letting a lead slip against Tilbury at Bridge Avenue.

With manager Jimmy McFarlane recovering from a stroke in hospital, Colin McBride took charge in the dugout, and Mott admits it’s been a tough week.

“It wasn’t the result we were hoping for but looking back on how the game went we were happy to get a point out of it,” Mott said.

“It was probably one of our worst performances of the season so we will definitely be looking to bounce back on Saturday.

“It felt good being back in goal on Saturday, although it wasn’t the result I was hoping for I was glad to be back out there.”

The former Welling United keeper admits it was strange being without manager Jimmy McFarlane but they’re all wishing him the best.

“It’s been a difficult week for everyone involved at the club,” he said.

“Jimmy is such a big presence so it will be strange not seeing him there for a while.

“All our thoughts are with him and his family and we wish him the speediest recovery possible.

“We’re going to do everything we can to win this league for him as he deserves it more than anyone.”

Vice-chairman McBridge was in charge for the match and Mott admits it felt no different as he’s been there with them all season.

“Colin has been in the dugout all season so it isn’t much different to be honest.

“He is very experienced and knows how to get the boys working hard, we know we are in safe hands with him.”
