Macclesfield Town manager John Askey was less than pleased with how his side started in the first half an hour of Saturday’s 3-1 loss to Kidderminster.
The Harriers scored three goals in a 13 minute period early on which was enough to see the Worcestershire side grab all three points.
After going three down, Askey made the decision to bring on both Danny Rowe and Kristian Dennis who were both fitness doubts ahead of the clash.
Dennis went on to score a brilliant free kick in the 90th minute, but the overall result and performance would overshadow such a goal.
Askey said: “The damage was done in the first half. The goals we conceded were very poor and for the first 30 minutes we’ve not competed.
“I was hoping that we wouldn’t have to play Rowey and Kristian because both of them have got injuries and obviously we had to take Rowe off towards the end.
“Our performance was nowhere near what we should be doing in the first 30 minutes. We got better once we made the changes but I just think everybody’s disappointed and I would have thought the supporters wouldn’t have been happy with what they saw in the first half.
“The focus is now on winning the next game and that’s all we can do now.”
