Boston verdict from the boss…

JOHN EUSTACE says the team’s focus is firmly on Tuesday’s FA Trophy replay following Saturday’s late draw at Boston United.
Harriers were well set at York Street, 2-0 up thanks to goals from Joe Ironside and Andre Brown.
But a late rally from the hosts pegged the back, a brace coming in the final dozen minutes to level the match.
Now the two must meet again this coming Tuesday (28th) at Aggborough to decide who will take their place in the First Round proper of the competition.
Though disappointed at those late goals, Eustace says the team must focus on finishing the task in hand in midweek.
He said: “It is going to be a tough game but we will prepare properly and hopefully we’ll go through.
“The character of the group is that we get knocked but we come back.
“We’re still in the hat and we’re looking forward to the game on Tuesday.”
Much like York last weekend and Tuesday’s league win over North Ferriby, Harriers dominated huge spells of Saturday’s game.
Eustace added: “The performance was excellent; it was a really good performance away from home.
“Obviously we are really disappointed that we conceded two sloppy goals.
“But we will go again Tuesday and hopefully we can win the game.
“We are getting and creating lots of chances and we need to be more clinical, because against any team we are going to get chances.
“The game should have been out of sight in the first half really.”
