The Urchins host top of the table Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday hoping to build on their recent good run of form.
Last time out the Urchins went to Thamesmead Town and by half-time had comfortably moved into a 3-0 lead courtesy of goals from Cooper, Wall and McKenzie. The game ended 3-0 and the Urchins will be happy to end their run of 4 league draws and to start hitting the back of the net following a barren spell in front of goal. Whilst only 4 sides have scored fewer league goals than Hornchurch this season the Urchins boast the best defensive record with only 18 goals conceded. They’ll be tested on Saturday though as Maldon & Tiptree top the goals for column with 47 goals this term, with the 6-1 demolition of fading Phoenix Sports their most recent result.
Liam Nash heads the Ryman League goalscoring chart with 16, 5 which came in the victory over Phoenix. Hoenchurch’s leading league goalscorer is Leon McKenzie with 6.
Recent form has seen just 1 defeat for either side, the 3-0 reverse for Maldon at the hands of Aveley.
