HARRIERS boss Neil MacFarlane said he will continue to push his players after they extended their unbeaten league run to eight matches.

Kidderminster also made it four wins from the last five matches with a well-deserved 3-1 victory over Blyth Spartans at Aggborough on Saturday, but the manager is adamant there will be no let up from his side as they face back-to-back away trips.

Ashley Chambers, Fraser Horsfall, and Ed Williams were all on target for Harriers, and MacFarlane said everyone at the club is working hard to continue their unbeaten start.

“I am delighted for the group,” the boss said. “Going eight games unbeaten is great and it’s really pleasing that we are now picking up wins away from home.

“Everyone here has got a real desire to keep this run going. Every single player is doing their part and trying hard to make sure we keep doing what we are doing so we can get where we want to get to.

“We’re building a winning mentality but also playing some really good football and creating lots of chances.

“We’re really organised and even when have a set-back – like we did at Blyth on Saturday when they got a goal back – we respond positively and keep attacking.

“I think we’ve been fantastic this season when we have been up against it. The Ashton game was key to our run. The players dug in and were able to come back from 3-1 down to get the draw.

“I will continue to push the players hard and push the boundaries of where we can go as a team as we go to York and Chester and there will be no let up from the players.”

Harriers have also been handed a home tie in the FA Cup second round qualifying draw this week, with Atherstone Town being the visitors to Aggborough on September 22.

MacFarlane added: “First and foremost we’re at home, which is what we wanted as our home form this season has been brilliant.

“But even at home, no draw was going to be an easy one as the FA Cup is such a difficult competition and everyone steps up their game.

“I hope that we can continue our momentum through the two tough away games we have this week and return home for the Atherstone match with our unbeaten run still intact.”

Kidderminster will be boosted by the return of defender Ryan Johnson who played in Northern Ireland U21’s 2-1 victory over Spain on Tuesday night.
