JOHN EUSTACE has demanded the entire group ‘get together’ as Harriers look to arrest their run of defeats following the 1-0 loss at Gainsborough Trinity.
The reds have found themselves in the midst of their worst run of form of the term at the worst possible time, a treble of defeats leaving them very short of momentum.
What’s worse is the way in which the defeats have arrived – the set back at Gainsborough being the second time in a row that injury-time goals have proved enough to condemn the boys to single-goal reverses.
Speaking after the Trinity tie, an angered Eustace made it very clear that now is the time for things to be put right.
He said: “I’m disappointed, very disappointed. That’s three defeats in a row and we are going to have to liven up quickly if we are thinking of getting into the play-offs.
“I’m disappointed with the group, we have got a game on Tuesday and we really need a big reaction.
“I need the group in there to get together…” Boss John Eustace
“Nobody is interested in performances, it’s results [that count] at the end of the day and we have had three disappointing defeats.
“I need the group in there to get together, as well as myself and the staff, and we need a positive result on Tuesday.”
Eustace was particularly frustrated with the way Harriers conceded so late. While having had plenty of chances to have won the game, he knows that the side should have at least secured the point.
“We need leaders everywhere,” he added. “We have got a young group and the older boys who were playing today have got to make sure we see the game out at 0-0 and that we don’t concede at the end.
“It’s about decision making and, as I say, I am really disappointed.”
Harriers are next in action as they host York City at Aggborough Stadium this coming Tuesday, 13th March at 7:45pm.
