Boss Mark Yates insists Harriers shouldn’t be daunted by their upcoming tests on the road in National League North.

After picking up an important win over Spennymoor Town last time out, Harriers must now travel to play-off rivals Brackley Town and Altrincham in succession.

Noting Chorley as an exception, the manager feels the Reds have plenty they can take from their recent away fixtures.

A point at Blyth and a win at Ashton represent some more positive recent returns, with Yates saying of more trips to come: “I don’t see it as being a problem.

“You look at Blyth – it was a game we know we should have won.

“Against Ashton we went up there and showed resilience, and showed we are capable of defending and putting our bodies on the line when we need to.

“At Chorley… we got done early and it took the wind out of our sails but, you look back, we had probably 60/40 possession in our favour but just didn’t do enough with it.

“Lessons have been learnt.”
