MANAGER Mark Yates insists his side are taking it one game at a time as they chase a National League North play-off place.

Harriers cut the gap to seventh-placed Telford United with a 3-0 win over Bradford Park Avenue at Aggborough.

Reds took the points thanks to a Joe Ironside double and another for his strike partner Ashley Chambers.

Yates was pleased with his side’s first half showing and the way they battled during the second.

He said: “First half I thought we were excellent, second half we got a bit of luck that we deserved and a bit of luck that we haven’t had since I’ve been here.

“I don’t think things have gone our way at all but I thought it did today. They changed their shape and matched us up and caused us a few problems but I thought we always looked a threat on the break.

“I thought there were some really good performances out there today, particularly first half and then we had to dig in a little bit in the second half and we did that.”

On his team’s late attempt to snatch at National League North play-off place, he added: “We know what we’ve got to do and we’ve got to hope things go our way elsewhere. Our focus just has to be on the next game now.

“We need 12 points to even have a chance but we’re not going to burden the players with that, it’s just about going and beating FC United next week.

“Our away form since I’ve been here hasn’t been good so we need to try and put that right.”
