Whild hails Malbon after U's win
5:50pm Saturday 9th February 2013 in News
GARY Whild hailed the contribution of match-winner Anthony Malbon after the 3-2 win Cambridge United.
The young striker set-up goals for Chey Dunkley and Marvin Johnson and then ended his 16-match drought with Harriers' third.
Despite a Josh Gowling own goal in the first half and a late header by Michael Gash, Harriers thoroughly outplayed in-form U's.
Assistant boss Whild praised Malbon.
He said: "He works his socks off and it is well-known he had not scored for a while but he deserved a goal for his work rate.
"He was lacking a bit of confidence in front of goal but his all-round game has been very good.
"He came to the club last season and scored a load of goals but he's added more to his game now. Let's hope he can kick-on."
Meanwhile, Whild played down claims by Cambridge boss Richard Money that Harriers are one of the best Conference Premier sides he had ever seen.
"That is a fantastic compliment, I thought we played well," added Whild.
"With the run we've had we want to keep producing that week-in, week-out.
"I thought we worked hard on a heavy pitch and earned the right to play our football "In the second half some of our football on that pitch was good and the three goals were all quality."
Harriers now go to Gateshead in the league on Tuesday night (7.45pm ko).
