Hornchurch boss rues missed chances

McFarlane muses over draw

Hornchurch saw their six-game winning streak come to an end at Folkestone.

Urchins missed out on the chance to move into a play-off place as a result, but manager Jimmy McFarlane was not too concerned.

“If you’d said to me after the game at Tonbridge [which Hornchurch lost 7-1] that we would win six and draw one, I would’ve laughed,” said McFarlane.

“We might look back and think it’s two points dropped, but we’re still unbeaten and it’s not the end of the world.

“We dominated most of the game but it was a story of missed chances.”

Allan Tait put the home side ahead just before the half-hour mark, but Martin Tuohy levelled with his eighth goal of the season soon after the restart.
