Boss reacts to Kettering thriller

Verdict on the incredible encounter at Latimer Park…

Harriers Manager, John Pemberton

MANAGER John Pemberton was pleased with the character shown by his players as they came from two goals down to grab a vital win on the road at Kettering, writes Elliot Ball.

The dramatic 5-3 victory was Harriers’ third consecutive away win, secured thanks to an Ashley Chambers brace, plus goals from Milan Butterfield, Cliff Moyo and Richard Peniket.

Pemberton felt that, although the game wasn’t pretty, his young side deserved the three points after a re-energised second half.

“The response from half-time was phenomenal,” he said after the game.

“I asked for a bit of character at half-time and I certainly got that in the second half.

“It wasn’t a pretty game…we couldn’t get fluid on the ball they were closing us down and making it very difficult.

“In the second half, it wasn’t pretty, but it was certainly effective and Cliff Moyo going in midfield made a huge difference – he led his team by example.

“I think it was a deserved win in the end… it was just a great professional performance.”
