Harriers went out of the Worcester Senior Cup tonight against their old rivals from up the road, Bromsgrove. It was a result that left the home fans wondering what has gone wrong with this club.
Accepting the fact that it was only a minor cup game and there were no points at stake it was disappointing to see such a lack of sharpness and commitment in front of goal from a team that play 4 divisions above Bromsgrove.
Compare a Premiership club to ourselves? That's the difference in status.
Even though we were having the lions share of chances on goals the Greens keeper Matt Lowe was having a good game and kept most of our efforts out.
Most of these fell to Bo Henriksen but they seemed to lack conviction as they were all directed straight at the keeper.
Their goal was dubious. Adie Smith
was shepherding the ball back to Stuart Brock as Matt Southwick came in to challenge. As he turned his head to look back at him they collided and the ref pointed straight to the spot to the amazement of the fans.
Beckett took the kick and sent Brockie completely the wrong way.
The half continued in the same vein with Lowe in goal for Bromsgrove thwarting the Harriers when ever he could.
