A pleasing night for the boss…

JOHN EUSTACE was thrilled with how his side downed in-form FC United at Aggborough on Tuesday night.

A composed first half was followed by an exhilarating second 45 minutes that saw the hosts rocket in four goals without reply.

Skipper Ryan Croasdale opened the scoring and, among the other strikes was a debut goal for new man George Waring.

Overall, the boss was understandably delight with what he saw from Harriers against a United side who had themselves been on a good run of form in the lead up to the match.

“I thought we were excellent; the performance was very good, against a really good team,” reflected the gaffer.

“Tom has gone in there and turned things around and they are a very difficult team to play against – they have had some fantastic results as of late and we knew it was going to be a tough night.

“I thought we controlled the first half and played some good stuff, and in the second half we managed to get a few chances and take them which is pleasing.

“All around, the performance was very good.”

The win keeps Harriers in a sound position in the table but, as ever, Eustace was far from interested in discussing the merits of other teams or how the reds compare.

He added: “We aren’t interested in anyone else – all we keep want to do is keep doing what we’re doing.

“Everyone knows that at the start of the season we had to rebuild the group and it took a while to get the players in.

“We just want to continue playing some good football and getting results and we’ll see where it goes – all we’re interested in is ourselves.”

Harriers are next in action when they host Southport at Aggborough this Saturday, 27th January.
