MANAGER John Pemberton was left angered after the defeat to Darlington following controversy around the home side’s winner, writes Elliot Ball.

Harriers returned from Blackwell Meadows on the back of a 1-0 reverse, the only goal of the night coming just before the break.

The moment itself proved contentious – Rhys Williams left with a suspected broken nose after being nailed with a high challenge in the build-up to the strike.

The boss was unable to hide his frustration at the final whistle, saying:

“You do play to the whistle but it’s a foul, it’s a blatant foul.

“I just don’t understand how you don’t give that, and I don’t want to start making excuses but it’s just facts.

“We certainly deserved at least a point from it, if not more.” John Pemberton

“We showed a lot of effort tonight, certainly the second half, I don’t think they had a shot on goal.

“That shows how dominant we were in the second half but obviously we lacked a bit in the final third, so we need a little more quality.”

The gaffer added: “We had a great chance at the end, and the goalkeeper’s made a great save.

“We were more than comfortable… we pinned them back and pinned them back, but we couldn’t quite get that breakthrough that we needed.

“We certainly deserved at least a point from it, if not more.”
