Nathan Harker put in a magnificent performance against Hereford but was unable to stop Blyth Spartans falling to a 1-0 defeat.

However, Harker is looking at the positives and admits the squad can ‘see things clicking’ as Lee Clark’s men wait for their first win of the season.

After suffering four defeats in a row scoring just the one goal Harker says the mood in the dressing room ‘Isn’t the best’ but is confident moving forward.

The on-loan Newcastle United ‘keeper has made a great start to life at Croft Park proving to be a reliable player between the sticks.

Harker joined on a fourth-month loan deal after Mark Foden picked up an injury in training and the 20-year old has played every game since joining.

The young shot-stopper is enjoying life at Spartans and says the support is better than he ‘thought it was going to be’.

Harker spoke after the defeat to Hereford, he said: “I think from a team perspective it’s not the result we wanted but we can see things clicking together now.

“Everyone is starting to get to know each other a bit better, so moving forward performances should be better.

“Even though we went in at the break 1-0 down I thought we were the better team it was just that final product, final ball or final finish.”
