JOHN EUSTACE was pleased with the professionalism of his side as they worked hard to see off Alfreton at Aggborough on Saturday.
In truth the reds were dominant throughout but, while they lead comfortably at the break, they had to deal with some stubborn resistance and physicality from the visitors after the restart.
That didn’t go unnoticed by the boss who complimented his team after the final whistle.
He says the showing against Alfreton didn’t differ too greatly to the performances seen on the road in recent weeks, though on this occasion Harriers found their cutting edge.
“It was a very good performance all round,” said the gaffer.
“We were very professional in the first half and I’m pleased with the three points, obviously.
“The lads have played very well in recent weeks and I don’t think we have played any better or worse [today] – we have just taken our chances, which is very pleasing.
“I was pleased with the way we stood up to them and the most important thing was three points.
“There is competition for places in the squad and the lads who played today were fantastic – I couldn’t be any more pleased.”
Dan Nti was handed a debut from the start against Alfreton following his arrival at Aggborough
earlier in the week.
“He did well,” Eustace went on to add.
“He is experienced at this level which is something we might need with the run-in.
“He’s come into the squad and added to the quality we’ve got.”
