Hornchurch ‘have to get over FA Cup exit’
Chairman McBride wants a reaction
Hornchurch chairman Colin McBride wants his side to bounce back quickly from their FA Cup disappointment as they return to Conference South action.
Urchins welcome Farnborough to Bridge Avenue today (Saturday), following a 3-1 defeat at Billericay last weekend, and have a trip to Maidenhead on Tuesday.
And McBride does not want any cup hangover, saying: “We went there (Billericay) the other week and were by far the better team (in a 1-1 draw).
“On the day it was really disappointing. But with games like that, you’ve got to get over it quickly.
You may also want to watch:
“We’ve got Farnborough and Maidenhead and we had six, seven or eight players having treatment at the club on Tuesday.
“I’d be very surprised it there’s not at least one new player in the ranks on Saturday.

He added: “Apart from Bromley (a 4-0 defeat) and Saturday, the other seven performances so far this season have been more than adequate.
“We’ve shown we can compete, but we want to do a bit better than that.”
