BOSS John Eustace praised the character of his young Harriers after they beat Brackley at Aggborough.

Kidderminster came from behind to win 2-1 as they quickly bounced back from Friday's disappointing defeat at Boston.

Late strikes from Fraser Horsfall and Dan Bradley handed them a narrow success against their fellow promotion hopefuls.

Eustace said: "I'm delighted with the performance. We were up against a very good team, a very experienced team and they made it very difficult for us.

"We kept to our principles and played some good football and were patient.

"The way things have been going through the season, when they scored with 10 minutes to go the lads could easily have dropped their heads and given up.

"That's the character of this young team. We've got the youngest squad in the league and they never know when they're beaten.

"Any time they have a disappointing result or performance they always come back stronger.

"I'm delighted to get a win. We had a disappointing result on Friday and it was important the boys bounced back. That's all I can ask for."

The boss was also full of praise for goalscorers Horsfall and Bradley.

On Horsfall, who netted his side's equaliser, he said: "Fraser has been fantastic all season and he's getting better and better.

"We're very lucky to have him, he's 20 years of age and you can see how he's progressed throughout the season.

"I don't think he'll score a better one in his whole career and thankfully he did it today."

On in-form attacker Bradley, he added: "Up until a month ago it's been a really frustrating period for him. He had no pre-season, lots of injuries, a bad knee injury and it's took him a bit of time to get fit.

"You can see he's a top player now and we're delighted he's putting the ball in the net."
