NEW boss Gary Whild was delighted to see Harriers record his first win in the Aggborough hot-seat after last night’s 2-1 victory over Macclesfield Town.

First half efforts from Callum Gittings and Amari Morgan-Smith sealed three points.

Danny Whitaker’s goal just before half-time breathed new life into the Silkmen, who piled the pressure on Kidderminster in the second half.

But the home side held firm, despite some frantic defending in the dying minutes.

He said: “Overall I thought in terms of effort, attitude and application the lads did absolutely fantastic.

“It was a little bit frantic but I think that was on the back of being a little bit desperate to get a win.

“You can try and bit too hard at time and maybe there were guilty of that.”

Victory lifted the Reds up one place to ninth and leaves them three points off the play-off spots in the Skrill Premier.

Whild added: “ I thought we scored two good goals and in the second half we showed a different side which is important if you are going to be in the mix in the league.

“There was a little spell when you couldn’t ask for any more in terms of putting bodies on the line and putting blocks in.

“It was important to win and you could see the lads were desperate to do that and hopefully moving forward we can be bit more controlled in the way we like to win games.”
