Neil MacFarlane rued another missed opportunity as Harriers were held to a 1-1 draw at Nunetaon on Saturday.

With some of their league competitors in FA Cup – or not playing in the league because of it – Harriers again had the chance to put down a marker to some of their rivals.

But for the second straight weekend, the opportunity to take top spot in the league slipped through the team’s fingers.

While they picked up a point on the road against the Borough, MacFarlane was left frustrated when he spoke at full time.

“It was a frustrating afternoon,” he said.

“I felt the second half was better than the first.

“In the first half we were negative with our passing and in the second we were a lot more aggressive with the football.

“We got into the lead and it’s disappointing to not hold on to that.

“It’s a disappointing result because we came here to win and to try and get ourselves to the top of the league and it has not happened.”

Harriers kept up their strong away form with the point, something in itself that was important after the thumping sustained at the hands of Southport seven days ago.

The boss added: “The most important thing is that you never suffer back-to-back defeats and we’ve not done that once this season.

“Long may that continue as I think that’s a really good trait to have within your team.”
