Hornchurch boss hoping for better

McFarlane: Not at our best in Wingate win

Hornchurch manager Jimmy McFarlane is hoping for an improved performance against Harrow tomorrow.

Urchins moved to within a point of the top of the Ryman Premier Division table with a 2-1 win at Wingate.

Martin Tuohy and Lewis Smith were on target as Urchins made it 11 wins in 13 away league matches this season.

But McFarlane said: “It wasn’t our greatest performance.

“It was a bit like after the Lord Mayor’s Show after beating Lowestoft, we never got going.

“We had the better chances and deserved to win, but it was a typical Ryman Premier game.

“It was very bitty. We weren’t our most fluid selves, but we worked hard and got three points.

“You take results like that at this stage of the season, but we’re only halfway through and have got to play better.”

Previous leaders Billericay dropped to third after a 4-2 defeat at Tooting, as Lowestoft took over at the summit.

Hornchurch could move into pole position with victory against Harrow but McFarlane warned: “I was surprised to see Billericay had lost at Tooting, but there are plenty more twists to come.”
