When asked if he was satisfied or disappointed with a point from the Billericay match, Gary McCann admitted, “When the final whistle blew I was disappointed to have only drawn.

"But, when we had been lining up to face that penalty at 1-0 down, I would have been delighted with a point. I am not sure we would have been able to come back from going 2-0 down at that stage of the game.

"In the first part of the first half we had to defend well, but we then got much better as the half went on. We were the better team in the final 20 minutes of the first half.

"In fact, in terms of a complete performance, I think it was one our best for a few months. Even in the second half, when Billericay had a big territorial advantage, we made sure they didn’t create too many chances.

"There were two huge individual positives on the night. First, Chris Seeby came back and played well in his first competitive match for almost 15 months. He looked like he had never been away and the goal he scored was as sweetly struck as you could have wished for.

"Second, you don't get Hollywood scripts in football, but if Dave Diedhiou had scored with his diving header in the 89th minute, it would have been a Hollywood ending to his 300th match for Hendon. It has been an honour and a pleasure to work with and manage Dave in the past eight seasons."
