Gaffer’s thoughts after FA Trophy exit…

THERE was some good, some bad for John Eustace in the wake of the team’s FA Trophy exit at the hands of Stockport County on Tuesday night.
Harriers were beaten 3-0 at Edgeley Park in suffering a rare defeat, two late goals doing the biggest share of the damage.
Up until that point, the visitors had dominated the game and should have registered – with Eustace’s charges having racked up a huge number of chances.
So while the football his team played and the way they controlled the contest left the gaffer pleased, he was rightly less than impressed with the defending for the home side’s goals and the failure to convert so many chances.
“I was really proud of the lads’ efforts tonight, he reflected after the game.
“Some of the football we played was fantastic and I was just really disappointed with our quality in the final third because we created a number of chances and didn’t take them.
“The defending for all three goals was poor as well, so there’s loads of positive stuff to take out of the game but lots of stuff to work on as well.
“We played well but defended poorly, and we’re disappointed – but it’s a chance to put it right on Saturday now.”
