How they rated:

Harriers 1, York 2

Hall: No chance with either of the York goals but not overly worked besides those fine efforts. 6.

Austin: Did his defensive duties reasonably well but couldn’t have an impact going forwards against a well-organised City outfit. 6.

Taylor: Good bursts forward from the left-back position with the ball at his feet and used his pace to recover when needed. 6.5.

Daniels: Looked slightly off the pace early on but did grow into the contest. Solid but needs more game time after his injury absence. 6.

Horsfall: Looked less composed than usual and did misplace a few balls out from the back. Had good moments against Burrow but is capable of better. 6.

Johnson: Had a really good game, especially in the second half. Won his aerial battle and looks so much more comfortable when able to play out quicker from the back. 7.

Clayton-Phillips: Good in flashes but couldn’t maintain his threat in the final third. 6.

Butterfield: Recovered well from an early knock and was soon back getting his foot in at vital times to win the ball back. Good energy. 6.5.

Ironside: Held the ball up well but often became too isolated. Too often Harriers went long to him before his team-mates could get up in support. Got on the end of McAlinden’s free-kick to bag the equaliser. 7.

Chambers: Came off after feeling ill early in the first half before he could make any sort of impact on the contest. 5.

McAlinden: A contrasting performance to the week before as he struggled get involved for long spells. Harriers going long to Ironside rather than out wide to McAlinden was one of the big difference between the last two showings. 6.


Williams: Came on for Daniels in the second half and was soon working Bartlett from range. Lively but couldn’t make it tell. Must be close to a start now. 6.5.

Richards: Replaced Chambers early in the first half but didn’t take his chance. His first touch let him down at times and he couldn’t use his pace as York dropped in and battled to protect their lead.

Unused subs: Penn, Higginson, Weaver.
