James McQuilkin hopes he’s done enough to nudge his way in to the Kidderminster Harriers side after his performance at Wrexham.
The former Torquay United man has had to be patient in recent weeks with the team performing well and picking up results.
But, as one of last night’s substitutes, McQuilkin was tasked with improving the side’s fortunes at the break, with Harriers trailing 2-0.
He put in an impressive showing and helped Harriers edge further forward than they had to that point, and contributed to the late rally that saw the Dragons’ finally earn his keep for the night.
Speaking after the game, James said: “I am sure he’ll [Colin Gordon] tell you I’ve been banging on his door and asking why I’m not playing, as every player should do, really, as you want to be out there playing the best football you can.
“I was quite happy to come on and try to get on the ball and make something happen; I thought in the second half we were very good.
“The first half was disappointing so the manager decided to change something – he wanted me to bring a bit of energy to the squad and hopefully I managed to do that.”
Harriers go back in to battle this coming Saturday when they host Bromley at Aggborough (3pm).
McQuilkin added: “We know what we can do but you are going to get times when form dips, but we have to build on our second half performance on Saturday and get back to winning ways.”
