Whild - Harriers still well-placed

First published in News

ASSITANT manager Gary Whild believes Harriers are still well-placed in the Blue Square Bet Premier after they ended a tough week with a 2-0 win over Tamworth at Aggborough.

Goals for Lee Vaughan and Steve Guinan ensured Steve Burr's troops bounced back from their FA Cup loss to Corby with a derby victory.

The three points also lifted Harriers into eighth in the table, just four points off the play-off spots.

"For a team that's struggling we're eighth in the table," commented Whild.

"We've had a rough time and if we're honest we've been disappointed, but we're still chipping away.

"For the club as we are, it's a fantastic acheivement."

Whild was also quick to praise the impact of goalkeeper Tony Breeden, who debuted for Harriers after joining from Southern League Premier side Leamington in the week.

Breeden replaced Dean Lyness, who was dropped the the substitute's bench.

Whild added: "Dean [Lyness] is a young lad and he's still learning the game.

"I thought Tony looked competent, he's not much older that Dean but he's just that bit more streetwise.

"He steadied us and the lads in front of him did well to protected him."
