Whild's pain at penalty decisions

First published in News

GARY Whild was disappointed Harriers were denied victory at Salisbury yesterday.

Callum Gittings had put the Aggborough outfit on course for their away win in Skrill Premier since October.

But during a dramatic injury time, Charlie Sherringham had fired home from the penalty spot after Kyle Storer's unfortunate handball.

Storer was shown a straight red for his error, while City's Angus MacDonald was also dismissed for fighting during for melee that followed the penalty decision.

Kidderminster have now not won on their travels for 12 Skrill Premier games.

Whild also felt Harriers should have had a penalty mid way through the second half when James Clarke handled the ball.

"I thought to be fair to the lads we did enough to win the game with the way we defended," said Whild.

"They had a lot of possession especially when we went down to ten men but they didn't create too many clear cut chances.

"It was just a little bit unfortunate, we didn't get the rub of the green.

"I also thought there was a definite penalty in the second half for us which was not given  and then the referee gave one against us.

"I wouldn't argue with the decision it was a handball but I am disappointed for lads as I thought we had did enough to win."

Whild is unbeaten in his six games in charge but three draws in a row have damaged their hopes of making the play-off hopes.

At one stage, Harriers has risen to seventh in the table but remain tenth, three points behind fifth-placed Halifax.
