Solid Harriers pleases Whild

First published in News

A THIRD clean sheet in a row and three more points delighted Harriers' manager Gary Whild after yesterday's 1-0 win over Dartford.

Kyle Storer bagged a 41st minute winner as Kidderminster recorded seven points from their first three games in the Vanarama Conference.

It's their best start to the season since the 1990-91 campaign.

Harriers created a host of chances but were kept at bay by keeper James Brown, who made a host of fine saves.

Dartford pushed for a leveller in the final 20 minutes but simply did not have the ability to break down Harriers' well-drilled back four.

"I had every confidence in the lads to hold out and if you look at the two keepers, Danny Lewis  has not had a save to make.

"At 1-0, Dartford had balls coming into the box but to be fair to the lads they defended excellently, we won our headers and anything that dropped down we dealt with."

He added: "We knew the game would be difficult because Dartford are a very hard working team.

"I don't think we could have done any more in the first half.

"We scored a great goal, Kyle's finish was excellent and we could have been two or three goals up.

"But what we did do was show the other side you need and kept another clean sheet."

The manager has also backed striker Craig Reid to score.

The former Newport man has been unlucky not to get off the mark so far and against Dartford he saw two efforts ruled out for offside and forced Brown into several smart stops.

Whild added: "I thought Craig was excellent with his work rate or willingness to get the ball, not to mention his when he's in the the box.

"He's had four shots on target and his goals will come."
