Reflections from the dugout…

JOHN EUSTACE admitted his team won despite not being at their best against Nuneaton Town on Saturday.
Harriers picked up a 3-0 victory at Aggborough against a Boro side who’d been reduced to nine men.
The home side secured the three points in a comfortable manner and with minimum fuss – though it was also without some of their trademark sparkle.
That’s not a point lost on the gaffer, either, as he spoke after the game.
He reflected:“The result was very important – but the performance, I wasn’t very happy with.
“I don’t think we played very well today but to get three points was great.
“With the standards we set here, that first-half display wasn’t good enough.
“I want us to be better but there is great character in the group because we didn’t play well at all today and still got the three points.”
The two dismissals inside the first half left the game a little disjointed and Nuneaton with an absolute mountain to climb.
They came and frustrated the reds for much of the opening half, with Eustace adding: “They’re a solid team… the manager has set them up really well.
“They are going to be tough to beat for the rest of the season.”
