Verdict from Mill Farm...

BOSS John Eustace was defiantly proud of his Harriers players in the wake of the dramatic 2-2 draw at leaders AFC Fylde.

Harriers swept the runaway leaders aside during a dominant first half, but were pegged back in a dogged second half that saw three red cards brandished.

Fylde levelled deep, deep into injury time leaving the visiting players crestfallen on the pitch.

But while there was obvious and understandable disappointment for the gaffer, there was no despondency.

He praised his young guns for going toe-to-toe with a Fylde side, expensively assembled and packed with experience.

“We were fantastic,” he said.

“I was really proud of the lads and the performance was excellent and we’re obviously disappointed at the end with the draw.

“At the end of the day we have come to a very good team with good experience and a good manager, and we’ve played very well.

“That’s a testament to the young group and how well they have done, they should be proud of the performance.

“I wanted to win the game but it doesn’t always happen like like that.

“I think we could definitely have done better with conceding the two goals… but we have a big game on Tuesday now to put it right.”
