Defender hungry for points at FC United…

LIAM DALY has demanded Harriers get their season off and running this weekend as the team head to FC United of Manchester.
It’s been a tricky start for the reds with consecutive 1-0 defeats to begin the campaign.
There’s no panic button being pushed but, after Tuesday’s set-back at Nuneaton, it is clear there is disappointment within the camp.
Boss John Eustace had strong words to say after the game and, likewise, defender Daly knows things must improve.
He was left to rue the injury-time winner for Nuneaton in midweek, calling it “terrible.”
“We haven’t got our season started yet,” the former Solihull man said.
“We look nowhere near what we should be.
“As a team, we need to get together and buck our ideas up for Saturday.
“The goals will start coming, but we should be switched on more and have seen out [Tuesday’s game].

“When you ride what we did from them – and we got lucky with some of the chances they missed – you just have to see the game out, get a point and go again.
“To concede in the 92nd minute is terrible.”
Saturday’s hosts, FC United, are in a similar position, though United have at least netted twice in defeats to Brackley and Spennymoor Town.
Put it right
Daly is keen to ensure Harriers don’t leave it any longer than this weekend to get themselves off the mark.
He added: “That’s the good thing about football – you don’t have to wait long to go and put it right.
“The gaffer said before the game on Tuesday that we needed a response from Saturday and we need an even bigger response now.
“We need to get our season started and that, to me, makes Saturday a sort of must-win game.
“We have got to start kicking on.”
