KIDDERMINSTER Harriers are on course for their highest league finish since relegation from the Football League - but assistant manager Neil Howarth still believes it has been a disappointing season.

Victory for Harriers at Woking tomorrow (5.15pm) would see them to 70 points for the current campaign and a possible eighth-place finish if results go their way.

Tuesday's 4-1 thrashing of play-off certainties Burton Albion at Aggborough was Mark Yates' side's sixth win in nine games, during which time they have scored 24 goals.

However, their early-season form ultimately cost them a shot at promotion and Howarth knows there is no escaping that fact.

"Whatever happens, it's been a disappointing season," he said. "We wanted to reach the play-offs and that's what we have failed to do. Nobody is trying to say it's been a great season by any stretch of the imagination.

"Our first season, we finished 15th and last year we were 10th. It's been a gradual increase in points and if we could finish eighth, it's an improvement.

"Hopefully, we can take something out of the campaign and kick on for next season."

Boss Yates said: "Bar 20 minutes or so at Weymouth, I've been delighted with the football over the last couple of months.

"We've scored some great goals. We have to take those positives and learn from the mistakes we have made. We'll go down to Woking determined to make it to 70 points."

Defender Alex Jeannin has recovered from illness so Harriers expect to have a fully-fit squad to pick from at the Kingfield Stadium.

On-loan Yeovil Town striker Daryl Knights scored twice against Burton, while Iyseden Christie and Gavin Hurren completed the rout.
