KIDDERMINSTER Harriers will aim to take a big step towards consolidating a National League North play-off spot when they travel to Spennymoor Town this Saturday.

Fifth-placed Harriers will take on their fourth-placed promotion rivals looking to extend their 17-game unbeaten league run.

The Reds continued their fine form when securing a big away win against Curzon Ashton on Monday night.

They bagged a 2-1 success thanks to substitute George Waring's late winner. Skipper Ryan Croasdale had earlier seen a second half opener cancelled out (full report inside).

Boss John Eustace was delighted with the character his side showed to go on and pick up all three points despite being pegged back by the hosts.

He said: “I thought we were great. The lads could have easily gone under after conceding, but I think we got stronger.

“Tonight was a tough game, every away game and every home game is tough.

“As long as we’re competitive in every game, hopefully we can do well.

“We weren’t clinical enough in the first half, which has been a problem for us away from home, but we scored two great goals in the second half."

On the exploits of his goalscoring skipper, he added: "It was a captain’s performance again – it’s every week now.

“He’s a top player, and we’re really lucky to have him."

The Reds were handed a boost ahead of kick-off after attacker Dan Bradley returned from injury to feature on the bench. He then made a big impact to set-up Waring's winner and hand Eustace a selection headache heading into the weekend.

The Spennymoor trip is the start of a big double header for Harriers with second-placed Harrogate Town set to visit Aggborough a week later.

Meanwhile, defender Kennedy Digie has extended his loan with fellow National League North side Nuneaton Town.

Digie, who featured for Harriers at the start of the campaign, has been with the Boro for the last month and will now stay until February 25.
