AFC Hornchurch striker Martin Tuohy hopes he can find his shooting boots tomorrow against Peacehaven & Telscombe, otherwise he knows he could find his way out of the team with other strikes almost ready for a return.

Tuohy, one of the most prolific forwards in recent years in the division, has endured one of his driest spells in front of goal, with just two goals to date this season.

And while happy to contributing in other areas, he knows he needs to start finding the net on a more regular basis.

“It is probably one of my driest patches in front of goal,” said Tuohy.

“I missed a sitter from six yards out in the Trophy win over Harrow Borough last Saturday and it was probably harder to miss.

“But I feel like I am working hard and playing well. Every striker goes through these little patches.

“I feel a lot fitter and I feel sharp but it’s just not working out in front of goal at the moment.

“But there’s a lot of competition for places up front and with George coming back on Tuesday I know I have to start delivering the goals otherwise I could be out of the team.”

But what does he feel the dry spell could be down to?

“I’ve scored a couple of goals but to be fair I don’t usually change my boots too often and I have just gone over to Nike boots,” said Tuohy.

“Perhaps it’s that. I haven’t got my old boots anymore, but perhaps I will have to go back to my old brand and see whether that makes a difference.”

Hornchurch have enjoyed a good run recently, with just one loss in seven games.

But that hasn’t seen the Urchins move up the table as much as they would like, however, Tuohy knows a run of wins can leave the table looking much healthier for the Bridge Avenue outfit.

“Peacehaven got promoted last season but they have been doing well so we know it will be tough tomorrow,” he added.

“You look at the table and it is still quite close really between a lot of the sides.

“But if we can get a run of four or five wins then that could have a big impact. Hopefully that’s what we can do.”
