Kidderminster Harriers boss John Eustace says his side getting the job done was what mattered as they reached the fourth qualifying round of the FA Cup writes Tom Feaheny.
They defeated Newcastle Benfield thanks to a goal from Joe Ironside, in a match where the Vanarama National League North side were pushed.
“Newcastle made it really difficult for us, they were an excellent team. These were tough conditions to play football in and, obviously, I’m delighted to get the win. It was a really tough game; the pitch was sapping the energy and was very spongy,” Eustace said.
“On the back of an eight-hour trip last night, getting to the hotel quite late, the lads were fantastic. It’s what the Cup competitions are all about, getting through to the next round.
“I’m really proud of the boys and hopefully we can get a good draw.”
The next round will be drawn tomorrow afternoon at 1pm and will see Vanarama National League sides enter.
