HENDON boss Gary McCann rued another disappointing day as his side failed to score for the third game running in a 0-0 draw against 10-man Carshalton Athletic.

The Dons boss was hoping for a response after the defeat at Billericay Town, but the closest Hendon came was an Anthony Thomas shot in injury time which was pushed aside by the keeper.

"It was as frustrating as it was at Billericay," admitted McCann, "It felt like a defeat. We lacked a cutting edge, guile, imagination and width today.

"I told the players to try shooting a bit more, which we did in the first half, but in the second half we were trying to score the perfect goal."

Hendon produced next to nothing before Thomas' late effort, coming closest in the first half through a Lee O'Leary shot which flew just wide.

Karl Murray was dismissed late in the first half, but Hendon rarely looked like breaking the deadlock, with long range shots from Danny Dyer and Lubomir Guentchev all they could muster.
