Burr: Players must accept they are a big scalp
5:00am Sunday 1st September 2013 in News
Harriers suffered a second successive defeat when Jake Howells bagged a brace of penalties in yesterday's 2-0 home loss to Luton.
The Hatters stretched their unbeaten run at Aggborough to seven games but until the 70th and 81st minute penalties, the match looked like it was drifting to a 0-0 draw.
Harriers are now 12th in the table after three wins and losses in the Skrill Premier.
With Kidderminster finishing second in the table last season, teams are adopting spoiling tactics to try and blunt their threat, although Luton took the game to them.
"We have got to get used to the fact we are a scalp,"said Burr.
"Teams will want to set themselves out to beat us, we've got to live with that and rise above it.
"We couldn't get any fluency today, our passing wasn't good."
Harriers tasted defeated after conceding two spot-kicks.
The first came after a poor back pass from Chey Dunkley put Danny Lewis in trouble and the keeper caught striker Paul Benson.
The second was more questionable as Andre Gray went to ground under pressure from Josh Gowling and an assistant linesman flagged for the penalty, with the referee not taking responsibility.
There was more bad news as Callum Gittings was carried off with an ankle injury.
The midfielder had been one of the few Harriers players who performed well, along with striker Joe Lolley. He had collided with an advertising hoarding after tussling with Luton defender Steve McNulty.
Burr said: "I thought the two penalties were penalties," said the Kidderminster manager.
"We didn't create enough chances ourselves to have won the game.
"There was a mix-up for the first penalty but it was clearly one and I thought the second spot-kick was good too.
"The referee didn't give the second one, for some reason the assistant who was 50-yards away gave it.
"But he couldn't see an incident where one of my lads was smashed into the hoardings."
