HARRIERS boss Neil MacFarlane insists his side's heavy loss to Chorley won't put him off switching systems again in the future.

The manager started with a back four for the first time this term but watched as Kidderminster fell to a 4-0 loss last Saturday.

The defeat at Aggborough also saw Reds drop to fifth in National League North after he decided against his tried and tested 3-5-2 formation.

However, MacFarlane was pleased with the way his team started the clash and says he won't be concerned about changing the formation when required.

He said: "We changed the system to try and spark something and I think it did that for us.

"I was actually really satisfied with how it worked at the start of the game. It worked well right up until they got their goal.

"We needed to do better defensively but it is certainly something I'd look at again.

"Sometimes you can be clouded by the scoreline a little but that was just us giving them little moments in the game that they took advantage of, which is something we need to cut out."

Kidderminster will now look to return to winning ways when they host York in the FA Trophy this Saturday (3pm kick-off).

"Our league win there earlier this season was one of our bester performances this season so far," added MacFarlane. "Hopefully we can reproduce that at home against one of the league's bigger teams.

"The attitude has been great again this week and, to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way.

"No-one likes losing games but we can all pride ourselves on the way we have bounced back from defeats this season. There is no reason why we can't do the same again.

"I spoke before about how we work so hard for each other and have maybe hit a bit of a lull in recent weeks but I also don't want to use excuses.

"What this group has done is give us a really good platform this season."

The manager is now keen to bring in new additions to freshen up his squad.

He said: "We do want to add some fresh faces because there are a lot of players who know they will always be involved in the squad each week. It's good to add some competition and there is nothing better than a few fresh faces to help with that."

Meanwhile, Harriers Academy quartet Jaiden White, James Dutton, Cian Fenlon and Zac Williams have been selected to take part in England Futsal trials in December.

All four players are in their first year with Harriers Academy, and have all featured regularly in Harriers’ recent FA Youth Cup run which saw them reach the first round proper.

At the start of November, attacker White and midfielder Williams took part in first set England Colleges FA trials – White particularly impressing to reach the second round of trials.

The Futsal trials will take place at the Doug Ellis Sports Centre on December 1.
