We Have Got To Finish Teams Off Said Penn

Kidderminster manager Russ Penn felt his side failed to finish Hereford off this afternoon despite taking the lead in the first half. The game finished 1-1. 

"It was entertaining for the neutral but not for me," said Penn.

"In the first half we were fantastic and were on the front foot.

"We stamped our energy on the game and took the lead deservedly, but in the second half they came at us with something a bit different and could probably say what I’ve just said about the first half.

"I wasn’t happy with the second-half performance, not one bit; we’ve got to finish teams off or grind games out a bit better – we gave them something to latch on to.

"I was happy being 1-0 up at half-time but whether it was a penalty or not - it was one of them. I think John-Lewis has just got in front and he's gone down. Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don't.

"Disappointed because he wasn't going to score from that opportunity 18 yards out.

"They haven't had a shot second half despite having the majority of possession."
