HARRIERS boss John Eustace says he wants his players to enjoy Saturday's FA Trophy clash at Barrow.

Kidderminster will go to Cumbria looking to book a place in the quarter-finals of the competition at the expense of their National League opponents.

Eustace thinks the game against a team from a higher level gives his young squad another big chance to increase their learning curve.

He said: "We will go there and look forward to the challenge.

"I want the players to relax and enjoy themselves. Hopefully we'll learn from the game no matter what happens.

"They are higher opposition with a very experienced squad but it is important we go there aiming to be competitive."

The Reds go into the game in confident mood following a fine win over Nuneaton last Saturday.

Two goals from Elton Ngwatala helped Harriers to a 4-0 victory – their ninth straight home success in all competitions.

Andre Brown and Ryan Croasdale also netted.

Eustace added: "I was delighted with the result and the way we improved in the second half.

"Nuneaton made it difficult for us in the first half but were very sloppy at times as well. But we have been consistent this season when it comes to breaking teams down and scoring goals and we were again rewarded for the way we came through a sticky period.

"Everyone is working hard every day and as long as we keep doing the right things then hopefully we get the result at the end of it."

Meanwhile, defender Jared Hodgkiss left the club last week to join Torquay United on a one-month loan deal after returning from injury.

That was the only departure from Aggborough and Eustace is delighted to have kept hold of his young stars this month.

He said: "I'm delighted that none of our players have left and we can be fully focused on the games ahead.

"Jared has left looking to get some game time and it shows his ability that he has been able to go to such a good club."

Harriers will make a quick return to league action when they travel to Stalybridge Celtic next Tuesday. The game will give them the chance to cut the gap to leader AFC Fylde.
