Hendon boss Gary McCann was delighted with the result at Leatherhead yesterday. He said, "Our performance was better and there was more cohesiveness. There was a lot to be happy with but I do feel there is still a lot of room for improvement.

"Seven points out of the last nine is good, although there was the disappointment of the FA Cup exit. As I said last week, we are still very much a work in progress.

"I was disappointed with the first goal we conceded from the free-kick. The second one was well-struck, but we did discuss having a man on the line. In my playing days, I hated when there was a player on the line - it invited attackers to be in and around the goal and in offside positions - but if we had put one there, he would have been able to clear the ball easily.

"Melvin's save was a fantastic one at a crucial stage at 3-2. If they had got the game back level again, it would have been a test of our mental strength.

"I felt we were very potent up front all afternoon. Leon gave their two centre-halves a torrid afternoon. Last weekend, we challenged the forward players to step up in Aaron Morgan's absence, and they did that.

"What was most pleasing was that not only did we score five goals, but we also created a lot of other chances."
