KIDDERMINSTER captain Cliff Moyo insists the players are working hard on the training pitch to right the wrongs of an inconsistent start to the season.

Harriers are yet to bag back-to-back league wins this term and have recorded just four wins from 14 in all competitions.

Their poor run continued last Saturday as they lost 2-1 at Spennymoor Town.

However, following their FA Cup exit at the hands of Stafford Rangers the week before, Moyo is hoping Kidderminster's young side will benefit from extra time on the training field.

He said: "It was massively disappointing against Spennymoor. We just weren't good enough in the second half and got punished.

"We have watched the game back this week and have identified the areas where we went wrong and we'll be working hard to put that right this week.

"We don't have a game this weekend and it's the first time for a while that we'll have chance to do some extra work on the training pitch.

"It will give us that extra time to work hard and to train and to get to where we want to be.

"It's been a frantic start to the season and a lot has been going on but we don't look for excuses.

"We are aware of what we need to improve and are determined to get to where we want to be. This break will help us do that."

The defender also underlined the belief the players have in manager John Pemberton, adding: "We need to kill games off a lot quicker when we get the chance.

"We are very close to getting it right and we still want to go and win this league. This team is at its best when we are on the front foot and pressing teams, but we need to be able to get the balance right.

"To have the gaffer that we've got is great and we all believe in what he is telling us and are determined to put that into action.

"It's important we stick together and keep working hard.

"We are going to be doing that in training so that we're ready to come firing out the traps when we face Farsley Celtic."

Meanwhile, Reds have boosted their attacking options with the addition of towering striker Brandon Diau.

The 6ft 6in German is a former Bayer Leverkusen youngster who has been training with Harriers for the past few weeks.

The 27-year-old has also featured for Truro, Billericay and Burgess Hill Town during his time in England.
