McFarlane wants more from Urchins
Hornchurch boss hails team’s character
Hornchurch boss Jimmy McFarlane wants more of the same from his players for the visit of Dorchester this weekend.
Urchins showed great character to break their duck for the Conference South season with a 2-0 win at Basingstoke.
Goals from Martin Tuohy and Lewis Smith lifted McFarlane’s men off the bottom of the table, after their 4-0 defeat at Bromley a few days earlier, and he said: “The most pleasing thing for me was the way we recovered from what happened at Bromley.
“Basingstoke are a very good side, but we showed great character.

“And to quote that famous phrase, we showed great bounce-backability.
“I look at what happened at Bromley as a freak result — because no-one saw it coming. But we showed the perfect response.”

Dorchester arrive at Bridge Avenue flying high in second place, but McFarlane added: “Every game is tough in this league.
“If you want to get anything from any game you’ve got to work as hard as you can and you can’t afford to have an off-day.
“But if we perform as we did at Basingstoke again, we can get a good result.”
