Verdict: Eustace on Spennymoor draw

Gaffer talks through Saturday’s draw…

John Eustace

JOHN EUSTACE says his side ‘can and will’ get better despite a strong second half showing in Saturday’s 2-2 draw against Spennymoor Town.

Harriers trailed to an early goal at Aggborough but fully dominated the second half of the match.

Two goals put them in front as James McQuilkin and Andre Brown struck to turn the score around.

That looked set to have handed Harriers a win, only for a dramatic late penalty to even things up at the death.

It was an eventful day, all things considered. Driving wind and rain caused problems for both sides and there were a strong handful of talking points.

Speaking after the game, Eustace reflected: “Conditions made it very tricky.

“In the first half we struggled to get out of our own half.

“Second half we were much better and on the front foot.

“The wind certainly helped both teams in either half but we really limited them to no chances in the second half.

“So it’s disappointing to get a draw with them scoring in the last couple of minutes with the penalty.

“There’s nothing we can do about that now – the decision has been made and they’ve scored the goal, so we move on.”

“Second half we were much better and on the front foot.”  John Eustace

Harriers have put together a steady run of form in recent weeks.

The next challenge is another sizeable one as the team make the journey to Stockport County next weekend.

Eustace added: “It would have been nice to have had three points today because Spennymoor are a very good team and are third or fourth in the league for a reason; they’re doing very well.

“So the run is going okay, but we can do better and we will do better.”
