Reflections on Gainsborough win…

JOHN EUSTACE was happy to see his Harriers side find their cutting edge in the second half to see off Gainsborough Trinity on Saturday.
The home side dominated the first 45 minutes at Aggborough but could not find find a way through the Trinity back-line.
Having been in that position a number of times this season, the 0-0 score line at half time did lead to one or two nerves within the ground.
But, within 90 seconds of the restart, Joe Ironside’s goal broke the deadlock and allowed Harriers to become a little more composed.
From there, Fraser Horsfall and Declan Weeks added further goals to round off a comfortable win and a score that did not flatter the hosts in any way.
“….fair play to the lads, they kept going in the second half…” John Eustace
Reflecting on the win that comes before Tuesday’s trip to title-chasing Harrogate Town, boss Eustace said: “It was very good; I was really pleased with the performance, it moves us nicely on to Tuesday.
“We’ve had the issue a lot this season that we have got to be more clinical.
“We created a lot of chances and we need to put those chances away.
“But, fair play to the lads, they kept going in the second half – the chances came and they put them away.
“Gainsborough are a good team – I have seen them play for the last two or three games.
“The manager there is very good and he sets them up to be really tough to break down and we had to be patient.
“When you get chances and don’t take them, it does worry you but the lads came out in the second half and Joe settled everything down.”
