MANAGER Neil MacFarlane has called on his Kidderminster players to keep their consistency after maintaining their unbeaten start to the season.

Harriers secured their first away win of the new National League North season after claiming a 2-0 victory over Boston United on Saturday.

A stunner from Ed Williams in the 14th minute set the tone for the match, with marquee summer signing Ashley Chambers adding a second eight minutes later.

The victory also marks the first time this season Harriers have won back-to-back matches following the previous weekend’s 2-1 success at home to Stockport County.

MacFarlane’s men now welcome Blyth Spartans to Aggborough, with the boss urging his players to maintain their consistency and keep the unbeaten run going.

“It was a really good team performance,” MacFarlane said. “Boston is a difficult place to go, and I only found out after the game that it’s been a very long time since we’d won there.

“We started the game strongly and scored two fantastic goals from Ed and Ash and from that point it was all about managing the game defensively.

“I’m really pleased with how we managed the game against tough opposition, and now we have to continue the unbeaten run and keep picking up wins away from home. That starts by keeping clean sheets.

“We know we can score goals against anybody in this league, so if we don’t concede we should win the match.

“Blyth will be another tough match. They beat Chester 8-1 but have since lost a few games, but we’re working the players hard and will to focus on what we need to do to win.

“There’s a real determination in these players to keep possession and every single day in training there is no let-up.

“I’m quite demanding on them but they have responded really well to me, ever since I came in on day one.

“This is a young group of players, but I think that is a real strength in this club. Kidderminster have always put faith in its youth, and it was great to see so many of the first team players watching the academy’s 7-0 win this week.

“There is a real togetherness throughout all the age groups here and the amount of young players we have coming through can only be good thing for the club going forwards.”
