Thoughts from Neil MacFarlane as Harriers slump to first home defeat of league season…

Neil MacFarlane lamented the fact that Harriers failed to capitalise on their early against FC United after falling to defeat at Aggborough.
The Reds began the contest in a determined mood and were ahead with less than five minutes on the clock as Ed Williams curled home from 20 yards.
Chances to add to that lead weren’t taken, and Harriers were made to pay for what was, after that, a below-par performance as United struck twice and held on to secure the points.
“It’s a really disappointing result,” the Manager reflected.
“It’s a game we have to win, but I don’t think we did enough in the 90 minutes to win the game.
“We got the perfect start but, a bit like the Altrincham game when we scored early doors, we never really got going after that and that’s the disappointing factor.
“We’ve mentioned about the complacency and not having that element, especially against a team that’s at the bottom of the league.
“It’s the first time we’ve lost at home and we don’t like losing any football matches, and again it is about responding through the course of the season.”
