Kidderminster Harriers defender Cliff Moyo was pleased with the way that Harriers matched League One opponents Bristol Rovers on Saturday, with the match ending 1-1.
The side from The Memorial Stadium visited Aggborough with a side packed with Football League experience, but Harriers opened the scoring through Ashley Chambers.
Tom Nichols then equalised for The Gas shortly after half time, before both sides made numerous changes to their teams – Harriers ending the match with all outfield players being either current Academy players or graduates, but worked hard to ensure that match ended level.
Reflecting on the performance, Moyo was was pleased and pull of praise for the impact made by the Academy players.
“It was a good performance in the first half, we stuck to the game plan as they’re a League One side, but we matched up to them,” said Moyo.
“In the second half, a few of the young lads came on and I thought they did very well.
“It’s never easy coming into a high tempo game, and Bristol Rovers put a strong squad out in the second half.
“It was a tough test for all of us, but we did well.”
