MANAGER Gary Whild hailed his players’ effort after last night’s 1-1 draw at home to Wrexham.

Aman Verma had fired the Aggborough outfit into a second minute lead before Wrexham’s Connor Jennings bagged a 65th minute leveller.

Harriers had chances to increase their lead when ahead, with keeper Jon Flatt denying Craig Reid and Verma, while Reece Hales headed wide.

Matt Robinson was also denied by a post late in the game.

But the manager could not fault his players as they stretched their unbeaten run to three games in the Vanarama Conference.

He said: “When it’s one-nil you need a second goal to give you a bit of breathing space and unfortunately, we had chances to do that, especially in the first half.

“You are always in danger of conceding and that’s what happened.

“I thought we did well enough to win but the effort that was put in on Saturday, you could see a little bit of tiredness in their minds.

“Perhaps that final little ball or pass was a bit laboured but I don’t want to be too critical after the work and spirit of the last two games.”

Verma’s 30 yard thunderbolt was the midfielder’s second of the season.

Whild added: “I keep telling Aman that’s what he is capable of doing. He was exceptional on Saturday and Tuesday and I thought he deserved his goal.”
