Come on you Reds!
Hornchurch 1 Boro 0
Harrow were knocked out of the FA cup here in east London in a scrappy game which was acumpanied by some truly baffling refereeing decisions.
HT 0-0 with hardly any chances. After speaking with other Boro fans we agreed it had 0-0 or a scrappy 1-0 win for either team written all over it. It was just a case of who would make the mistake.
Didn't think Hornchurch were that better, organised in defence and perhaps quicker to the first ball , but that was it. Their goal coming in the 48min after the ball was lost on Harrows right. A silly goal to give away.
Boro huffed and puffed but to little effect. The midfield misfiring again IMO. Final balls frequently being mishit and generally looking flat.
Frustrating to watch and an opportunity missed.
3 points week please, that should erase the memory of this truly dire game.
Re: Hornchurch 1 Boro 0
A very disappointing result. A flat performance that seemed to highlight our midfield failings. Bryan didn't impose himself on the game at all , while Brown offered little defensively & nothing offensively. Moss didn't seem himself either.
I didn't really see the point of switching to a flat back four for the !ast quarter of the game either , surely just letting the wing backs get forward more would have been a better option.
