Hornchurch boss happy
Second-half showing pleases McFarlane
Hornchurch boss Jimmy McFarlane was pleased with his side’s second-half response in last night’s Essex Senior Cup tie at Eton Manor.
Trailing 1-0 at the break, after an early Manor goal, Urchins hit back with a six-goal salvo, as Martin Tuohy and Ross Wall bagged braces and Tambeson Eyong and Andy Tomlinson also struck.
McFarlane said: “They were lucky there wasn’t any tea in the dressing-room at half-time.
“We thought it was going to be easy, but it was only a matter of time before we scored. It was a matter of application.
You may also want to watch:
“I said to them, the longer you go without scoring, the more agitated, nervous and anxious you get and you start to do things differently.
“But we showed what a good side we can be in the second half and it was an all-round good performance.”
