John Eustace hailed a “first class” showing from his side as Kidderminster Harriers came from behind to beat Darlington 2-1 on Saturday.

In a real ding-dong battle at Aggborough, Harriers looked to have been frustrated by a determined and resolute display from Darlington with the game edging towards a draw.

But up popped skipper Keith Lowe to nod in a winner to ensure the team’s winning run continued.

Eustace spoke after the game and was clearly delighted with what he’d seen.

He reflected: “There were two good teams playing there – Darlington are a top team in the league.

“We know what they’re all about, and obviously I’m delighted with the three points.

“Maybe on another day it could have been a draw, but we were different class – I’m really proud of the lads.

“Every game is different – there are ways to play and Darlington are very good at the way they play.

“I couldn’t have been more proud of the way the young boys and how they stood up to the task and nicking the goal at the end was great.”

Harriers are next in action on Boxing Day when they make the short trip to Bromsgrove to meet Worcester City (3pm).
