Steve Burr talks up Kidderminster's chances after win over Grimsby Town
KIDDERMINSTER manager Steve Burr believes his side have a genuine chance of achieving success this season after their 3-1 victory at Blundell Park on Saturday.
The Harriers boss was full of praise for his side, who he said were 'excellent' on what was a difficult afternoon for the Mariners.
Burr acknowledged that having played more games than most of their league rivals – including Grimsby Town – plenty of teams have the chance to overtake his side, provided they win their matches in hand.
But he insists the Harriers' sole focus is to continue winning as many games as possible from now until the end of the season.
He said: "We said early on last week that coming to Blundell Park would be a really tough task for us.
"But I thought some of our football at times was excellent.
"Let's not forget the contribution Danny Lewis made in the first half because he made two terrific saves to keep the ball out of the net, as early on, Grimsby were quite a threat going forward.
"There is nowhere more difficult to come than Grimsby, but we took our goals well, at the right times in the game and it was a really pleasing three points."
He continued: "The only downside to where we are, is that there are teams around us that can go above us if they win their games in hand.
"We can't do anything about that. All we can do is to win as many games between now and the end of the season as possible.
"I'm sure if we carry on playing like that, with that kind of performance that we put in on Saturday, then we will have a real chance of achieving something.
"We've got all the teams up there to play. We haven't played Wrexham yet and we still have to go to the likes of Luton and Newport.
"We know how tough it is in this league and our result up at Gateshead goes to show that no games are easy."
He added: "It is nice because the last few times we have come here, the supporters of Grimsby have applauded us off, which is a nice touch from them."
