“We missed Ben Andrews,” Maggs admits after Harrow Horror Show Part II

HARROW handed Horsham a second humiliating defeat in the space of a few weeks leaving manager John Maggs to ponder just what went wrong again.

On a ground which has seen the Hornets regularly made to suffer they were again put to the sword with a 6-0 drubbing which came just weeks after the same opponents dealt them a 7-1 beating at Gorings Mead.

Rocky Baptiste ran in four goals as Horsham’s weakened five man defence struggled with a new formation and gifted their in-form hosts the first three goals and ended up lucky not to have leaked any more then the six.

“It doesn’t surprise me against Harrow, every time we seem to play up here or this club we seem to get well stuffed and that’s what’s happened today,” Maggs said.

“Ironically I think the boys have put a shift in and worked quite hard but they’ve scored six goals.

“Every goal they’ve scored today could have been prevented. They missed better chances so that could have been double figures.”

Horsham’s inspirational skipper Ben Andrews was the most notable absentee at the back and Maggs acknowledged: “I’m limited, I’ve made the changes without Ben Andrews who is colossal for us and you make the changes but you can only do so much.”
