Hendon completed an impressive 4-0 win against Bury Town in the Ryman Premier
2:16pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Sport
Hendon manager Gary McCann praised his players after the Greens recovered from their FA Cup disappointment by securing a 4-0 away win against Bury Town in the Ryman Premier.
McCann’s side were comfortably beaten in Cup action by Bishops Stortford and the Hendon boss branded the defensive mistakes made in that game as “completely unacceptable.”
Seven days later however and the Greens were greatly improved against Bury. Casey McLaren put them ahead after 12 minutes and then Carl McCluskey doubled the lead.
Jefferson Louis struck short after the restart and the victory was rounded off when Anthony Thomas converted a penalty.
A delighted McCann said, “After last Sunday, I did a lot of soul-searching with my management team and what we got was a great reaction from an honest bunch of lads.
"The whole of the management team spent a large part of the week, rebuilding confidence in the players. We addressed a number of key issues and the players responded brilliantly.
“It was a fantastic performance by every one of the players. The early goal was key factor in the win, and it was great to keep a clean sheet. We battled very hard and it was a controlled and well-disciplined response.”
Hendon took on Wealstone in the Ryman Premier Cup on Monday evening and suffered a 1-0 defeat as James Hammond’s goal settled the contest.
Wingate & Finchley claimed their second away league win of the season as they defeated Harrow Borough 2-0.
The opening 45 minutes was closely contested and Harrow missed an early chance as Simeon Akinola headed over from close range.
