Mixed feelings for Burr after Bulls loss
9:34am Wednesday 2nd January 2013 in News
HARRIERS boss Steve Burr felt his side did not get the rub of the green as Hereford ended their seven match winning streak in the Blue Square Bet Premier in yesterday's 1-0 defeat.
Josh O'Keefe's 13th minute penalty proved to be the difference, despite the hosts dominating the match.
But they found keeper James Bittner in inspired form, as he pulled off a string of saves, including denying Kyle Storer from the spot early in the second half.
"I thought we played very well and did everything but score," commented Burr.
"We were disappointed with the result but I was very pleased with the performance but I could not have asked for anything more.
"Hereford's goal did lead a charned life I felt and it was one of those days when you don't get what you deserve."
Two of Harriers' last three defeats have also seen them not score penalties and Burr admits he will take a good look at spot-kicking duties.
He added: "The missed penalties were the only thing I had a go at the players about after the game.
"We started the second half brightly and the penalty comes at a crucial time in the game and really that's three we've missed now.
"If you look at the games it has cost us and it's something we need to address."
Harriers will be aiming to bounce back at home to Barrow in the league on Saturday (3pm ko).
