‘We will keep going,” insists Hornchurch boss McFarlane
Non League Preview: Hornchurch relying on other results while Romford entertain AFC Sudbury
AFC Hornchurch manager Jimmy McFarlane remains defiant about his side’s slim automatic promotion hopes in the Ryman Premier Division.
The Urchins have to rely on results elsewhere as they prepare to make the trip to lowly Harrow Borough tomorrow (Saturday).
League leaders Billericay Town are five points ahead of McFarlane’s side going into the final two games and Hornchurch require mid-table Margate to pull off a victory against Craig Edwards’ Blues this weekend.
“There are still two games to go and we are not going to give up,” said McFarlane. “We’re just going to keep doing what we’ve been doing.”
