Hendon manager Gary McCann admitted he was frustrated with how his side ended their 5-2 win against Thamesmead Town
1:48pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in Sport
Hendon completed a comfortable 5-2 victory against Thamesmead Town in the Ryman Premier on Saturday but Greens boss Gary McCann admitted he was “very unhappy” with the way his side finished the game.
A fourth-minute goal from Anthony Taggart put Hendon in control and they dominated the majority of the opening half.
However, Thamesmead did have the chance to level from the penalty spot but Berkley Laurencin produced a superb save to deny Javilon Campbell.
It proved a turning point and shortly before the interval, Jefferson Louis doubled the Greens’ lead.
Louis completed his brace three minutes after the restart and Hendon scored a fourth after Dave Diedhiou tapped home from close range.
Thamesmead pulled a goal back as Lewis Tozer converted a penalty but Anthony Thomas grabbed Hendon’s fifth. Mead grabbed a late consolation through Daniel Ailey.
McCann, although pleased with the win, was less than happy with the final half hour. He said: “For an hour we were outstanding and completely dominated Thamesmead. We scored four goals and could probably have got many more. But it was almost as if it was too easy for us and we became very sloppy.
“If you had offered me a 5-2 win before the kick-off I would have bitten off your hand for it. But I was very unhappy with the way that we finished the game and I let the players know about it in the dressing room.
“We have to be much better in the last 30 to 35 minutes. I was not happy with them as a group and as individuals.”
There was disappointment for the Greens on Tuesday as they lost 5-2 against Hampton & Richmond Borough.
