Plenty of positives despite defeat

There were plenty of positives to take away from today's 3-1 friendly defeat at Eastbourne Borough. Apart from a ten minute spell at the end of the first half, the Greens more than matched their opponents who finished in the top half of Conference South last season.

Eastbourne took the lead in the 26th minute through Elliott Romain, despite the Greens having some very good spells of play during the first half. However, the home side took the game away with goals from Darren Lok and Kane Haysman, leaving Hendon rueing some poor defending from set pieces.

The second half saw the Greens be on top for much of the half, with Aaron Morgan finishing off an excellent chance clinically. With Sam Murphy, Scott Shulton and Mahrez Bettache causing the home defence no end of problems, the Greens were a touch unfortunate not to score another goal.

Next up is Gary McCann's Testimonial Match on Tuesday evening at Earlsmead, kick off 7.30pm. Remember that this is a pay what you want game.
