Urchins travel to Hampton & Richmond Borough

Hornchurch boss Jimmy McFarlane feels his side are capable of achieving victory at Hampton & Richmond Borough on Saturday (3pm KO).

After wins over Canvey Island and Dulwich Hamlet, the Urchins lost their last match to fellow battlers Lewes 1-0 at home.

Hampton are also near the bottom of the Ryman Premier table but McFarlane knows his side have the quality to achieve the right result this weekend.

“We have to keep doing what we’re doing. We should have scored a couple of times from corners against Lewes, our delivery was excellent,” said McFarlane.

“It wasn’t to be in that game. We’ve had luck recently and it deserted us then. Hopefully is can return against Hampton.”

Despite the midweek loss to Lewes neither Witham Town or VCD Athletic, the sides occupying the last two relegation places, capitalised on Hornchurch’s misfortune.

The Bridge Avenue outfit’s gaffer is hoping his team can bounce back quickly this weekend to not afford other sides more hope in the bid to stay up.

“Nothing has changed at the bottom. The only thing that has changed is that there is now one game less,” added McFarlane.

“Against Lewes, we dominated. We’ve had to pick ourselves up all year and that’s no different against Hampton. We’ll look to grab a win.”
