John Eustace has urged his Kidderminster Harriers team to learn from a costly lesson in the wake of Tuesday’s 2-1 home defeat to Brackley Town.
Harriers rarely hit the heights of the 6-1 Curzon Ashton win against Kevin Wilkin’s men and, ultimately, a goal in each half was enough to seal the points for the visitors.
The gaffer looked towards this coming weekend’s fixture with Chorley as a chance to correct some of what he saw on Tuesday and says his players must continue to learn.
Reflecting on the defeat soon after the final whistle, he commented: “We were really disappointing tonight.
“I don’t think we played any football and we weren’t brave on the ball.
“Maybe the lads thought they could turn up and it would just happen, so it was a good lesson for us tonight.
“We move on; we have another game on Saturday so hopefully we can learn from it.
“There were a couple of positives but there were also a lot of negatives.
“We’ve got a very young group and we’ll be learning all the time.”
