More reaction to Tuesday night’s game…

Chairman Colin Gordon has hailed the support Harriers have received from their fans away from home in the last week.
It has been a hectic period at Aggborough. With the Christmas period only just coming to an end, the team faced a daunting double-header on the road against Darlington and Spennymoor.
In between, the club and Neil MacFarlane parted company and, while both matches ended in defeat, the team were supported heartily by a small group of avid supporters.
With the performance in the latter fixture, a 2-1 defeat at Brewery Field on Tuesday, producing a vastly improved showing from the players, Colin was at least pleased to be able to say that those who’d travelled had something to get behind.
He said after the game: “The fans’ reaction to the players tonight was phenomenal, and the people who’ve come all the way up here are probably the same people who travelled up to Darlington – the congratulations they gave to the players, I’d like to give [to them].
“I know one or two people are unhappy that the players didn’t show their appreciation on Saturday and that is unacceptable on our side, and I can only apologise from the club.
“That should never happen. We have a great relationship with our fans and, in particular, those away fans who seem to travel to every game and we should always show our appreciation, no matter how disappointed we are in performances.”
The Chairman has stepped into the breach to oversee first team affairs alongside Jimmy O’Connor and Russ Penn.
He added: “I am not going to be in charge long – we will find the right man to take us forward, but that man has got to come in with same attitude as these players.
“He’s got to want to be brave and play the game the right way, coupled with getting rid of the errors we’re showing at the moment.”
