HARRIERS boss John Eustace says the draw with Darlington is a wake-up call for his players.

The Reds drew 3-3 at Aggborough after twice surrendering a two-goal advantage after goals from Andre Brown, James McQuilkin and Elton Ngwatala.

Darlington struck twice late in the game to share the spoils from a clash that also saw substitute Tyrone Williams sent off after getting involved in an altercation with Harvey Saunders in the last ten minutes.

Eustace said: “It is a wake-up call for the boys because we keep throwing silly points away when we are dominating games.

“The game should have been out of sight. Yes, we could defend better but also have to take more chances. It could have been six or seven today.

“We played well. We have to defend as if our lines are on the line.

“We want to win games and it has to mean everything to the group. At the moment we are not doing enough to see games out.

“Age does not make a difference now. These boys have got to realise it is their livelihoods and it means everything. We need to start turning these draws into wins.”

On the sending off of Williams, he added: “It was a needless sending off. He didn’t need to get involved. It’s something I am not very happy with.

“Even so, we should still defend better for the third goal.”
