Butterworth looking for a Rovers response

Great Wakering Rovers v Hornchurch – Friendly Match – Burroughs Park – Saturday (3pm) – Preview

Steve Butterworth will be looking for a reaction from his Great Wakering Rovers side when Buildbase FA Trophy holders, Hornchurch are the visitors to Burroughs Park on Saturday.

The Rovers steady pre-season progress was given the once-over during the week as a rampant Dagenham & Redbridge side hit ten without reply past the beleaguered villagers.

“It’s now a test of character,” Butterworth told Yellow Sport.

“We had done reasonably well before the Daggers visit. They gave us a wake-up call and we now need a response.”

Butterworth added: “We are looking forward to Hornchurch visiting. Their FA Trophy success was great for them and local football.

“Urchins Chairman, Colin McBridge sorted the game for us. Hopefully, we can give them a game and take some positives as the season draws closer.”

Hornchurch saw off Hereford by three goals to one at Wembley Stadium to win the Buildbase FA Trophy
