Hornchurch manager Jim McFarlane will be rotating his squad for their Velocity Trophy round one clash with league rivals Aveley.

The Urchins will host The Millers at Bridge Avenue this evening (7.45pm kick-off) and will be looking to make it ten wins in a row.

“It will give a chance to all the boys who haven’t played many minutes and give them a chance to show why they deserve a place in the side,” McFarlane said.

“Everyone of the substitutes from Saturday will play and we’ve also got a new boy we need to have a look at.”

Urchins are expected to start the likes of club legend Martin Tuohy, Taj Hussain, Jed Chouman, Mathias Fanimo, Mohamed Kamara, Armandu Ruitirna and Harry Lambert in the trophy clash.

“It’s a chance for them to prove they deserve the shirt instead of someone else.”

McFarlane revealed he looks forward to every match and expects a tough task to progress into the second round of the competition.

“I look forward to every game,” he said.

“I always expect a tough game against a Terry Spillane side as they’re big strong, physical and organised.”

The manager also admitted there are no easy games for his men this season.

“This season there is no easy games,” McFarlane said.

“This is the toughest I have ever known the Ryman North to be, so I’m expecting a tough game.”
