FOOTBALL - Whing admits Solihull Moors were 'too safe' in Kidderminster defeat

ANDY Whing felt Solihull Moors were ‘too safe’ after slipping to a 1-0 home defeat against a resurgent Kidderminster Harriers side.

Jack Lambert scored the game’s only goal on 49 minutes with a fine effort into the top right corner from just outside the penalty area before Krystian Pearce saw red late on for the visitors at the ARMCO Arena.

Moors remain fourth in the National League table although Whing insists his side must move on quickly from the defeat.

Whing said: “I’m really disappointed with the performance, we were absolutely miles off it, second best in most areas, the biggest thing was we were too safe playing sideways and backwards.

“They’ve beat us up, we were way too safe and didn’t take enough risks, the last 20 minutes were boring, we didn’t play enough progressive passes, it was just one of those days.

“We’ve been excellent lately, it was probably one game too far for us maybe, we were too nice, they were a team of men and they beat us up and we have to move on quickly.

“There’s no time feel sorry for ourselves, we’ll take a lot of learning from this, we were quite soft, they fully deserved it.”

Solihull are next in action away at Eastleigh on Saturday, March 2 with kick-off at 3pm at Silverlake Stadium.
