JOHN EUSTACE was very clear in his post-match assessment of the draw with Darlington as he once again bemoaned the dropping of two late points.
Harriers were 3-1 up in the second half at Aggborough before a shock last quarter of an hour saw the match turn around.
Two goals coupled with the sending off of Tyrone Williams saw the team forced to settle for a point when all three looked well on their way.
Eustace was clearly irked by both the goals and the loss of discipline, as he reflected: “We’re really disappointed to drop two points and it is a tough one to take.
“I’m really disappointed with Tyrone getting sent off – it was needless and he didn’t need to get involved, so it’s something I am not happy with.
“But we should still defend better at the third goal and it is a wake-up call for the boys because we keep throwing points away when we are dominating games.
“…these boys have got to realise that it’s their livelihoods and that it means everything. John Eustace
“The game should have been out of sight.
“The defending has to be better but we need to be more clinical and take more chances because it could have been six or seven today.
“Those are the facts; we played very well but we’ve got to be more clinical and need to defend as if lives depend on it.”
Eustace, who takes Harriers to York City next weekend, added: “We want to win games and it has got to mean everything to the group.
“At the moment I don’t think we are doing enough to see games out and it is something we have got to keep working on.
“Age doesn’t make a difference now; these boys have got to realise that it’s their livelihoods and that it means everything.
“We’ll be working on it even harder on that and we need to turn draws into wins.”
