Boss Neil MacFarlane says Chester were worthy winners over Harriers on Tuesday night – but has backed his team to respond in style.
A 3-1 win for The Seals inflicted on Harriers their very first defeat of the new season.
Ed Williams had reduced a two-goal deficit to 2-1 with around 15 minutes to play but the hosts responded with another goal of their own to ensure the Reds came home with nothing.
Reflecting on the evening, MacFarlane gave due credit to Chester -but knows the group in his own dressing room have the right tools to response from a first set-back in ten games.
“I thought Chester deserved their win,” he said.
“We’re obviously disappointed as a group that the unbeaten run has gone but we have to bounce back, and I am convinced that this group will.
“We’re ten games in and this group has come so far in that ten games and we can’t lose sight of that…” Neil MacFarlane
“We’re ten games in and this group has come so far in that ten games and we can’t lose sight of that.
“Tonight, it just didn’t happen for us – not through a lack of effort, but the touches and the moments that were so good for us at the weekend just didn’t happen for us tonight.
“But you have to give Chester credit… they deserved their win.”
Harriers now go into the Emirates FA Cup this coming weekend when they meet Atherstone Town at Aggborough.
The boss added: “I’m looking forward to Saturday already and I am sure the players are.”
