Neil MacFarlane wants to make sure attitudes are kept in check after the team’s 4-0 demolition of Leamington on Tuesday night.

Harriers turned in arguably their best performance of the season at the New Windmill Ground to sweep aside the Brakes.

Dan Bradley, Declan Weeks, Ashley Chambers and Lee Vaughan were all on target on the night, leaving over 250 Harriers delighted.

But while they revelled in the result and the positive position it leaves the team in, MacFarlane was keen to ensure that the focus remains firmly on the next task in hand – Southport at Aggborough this weekend.

“First of all, the support was unreal,” he said after the game.

“It was incredible, behind the goals, the amount of people we had through here – so that shows you we’re in a good position going forward.

“…We’re in a good position but it’s still early in the season.” Neil MacFarlane

“For a number of weeks, we’ve been chasing at the top and we have got closer – but we have to remain humble and come back in on Thursday and make sure we’re prepared for the weekend.

“We’re in a good position but it’s still early in the season. We’re definitely going to be striving to do as best we can.”

The team’s biggest win of the season also came with a second clean sheet in a matter of days.

However, the gaffer warned that there must still be more to come from the side.

He added: “That’s one of our aims, all the time, that they continually look to improve.

“That will never change as we go through November, December, January as we go on – we’re always looking to get better.”
