Kidderminster Harriers coach has reasons to be cheerful
8:00am Saturday 13th October 2012 in Sport
KIDDERMINSTER Harriers can become a force to be reckoned with in the Blue Square Bet Premier, according to player-coach Steve Guinan.
After losing their first five matches of the season, Steve Burr’s side have now put together an unbeaten run of nine fixtures.
They have gleaned 15 points to move clear of the relegation zone ahead of today’s trip to Stockport County (3.30pm).
Guinan was in the dug-out at Aggborough for Tuesday’s match against Hyde as Harriers won 3-0 for the second successive home game.
The 36-year-old, who combines striking duties with his coaching role, believes the players are now starting to fulfil their potential and are brimming with confidence.
He said: “We knew behind the scenes that we weren’t a million miles away but we should have done better at the start of the season than we did.
“With the unbeaten run, we’re scoring a few goals and keeping clean sheets and the players look a different proposition to what they were in the first few games.
“Confidence comes from scoring goals and winning games.
“We rode our luck at times (against Hyde) but, compared to the start of the season, to look on and watch a game where we finish 3-0 winners at home — we’ll take that.”
