Mistakes costing us says McFarlane

Hornchurch boss unhappy with errors

Jimmy McFarlane says mistakes cost his side a Ryman Premier Division victory at Margate at the weekend.

Kieron St Aimie and Martin Tuohy cancelled out an early opener from the hosts to put Urchins on top in Kent.

But Wayne Wilson’s goal, direct from a corner, ensured honours finished even and McFarlane said: “We should be dealing with things like that but it’s another two points dropped.

“Individual errors are costing us points and we have been struggling against the lower sides.”

Hornchurch have taken just five points from a possible 15 and lie three points off a play-off place and visit Horsham this weekend.

And McFarlane knows his side are running out of games to qualify.

He added: “I think we need five wins from our last six games to get in the play-offs.

“We’ve done it before so it’s possible. We’ve got the players to do it, but it’s down to the players.”
