Harriers' spirit is hailed by Burr.

STEVE Burr praised his Kidderminster Harriers side for keeping the focus on football matters, despite their off-thepitch headaches.

The Blue Square Bet Premier club have decided not to appeal against the fivepoint penalty dished out by the Conference for failing to report their financial affairs correctly.

The club is also still fighting to deal with reported debts of pounds 120,000 amid warnings of the threat of administration.

But Burr's men remain one of the division's form teams and they head to Barrow today looking to follow their biggest win of the season after thrashing Kettering Town on Tuesday.

"It's my job to make sure the players are on their game in training and in matches," said Burr. "It's down to myself, Gary [Whild] and my back-room staff to keep the atmosphere positive.

"I've been in the game long enough to know that there are ups and downs but you have always got to be ready for the next challenge."

Burr was delighted to see the 4-1 victory against Kettering.

"What capped off the performance was that we got a few goals, " he said.

"We've threatened do that against Gateshead and Tamworth when we created some good chances.

"But you have to take those opportunities."

Burr is still keeping tabs on Marc Williams who spent three months on loan at Aggborough before returning to Wrexham.

But the financial constraints mean Harriers would struggle to offer a long-term deal to striker Williams.

"He is a player who has been with us and we liked what we saw," said Burr.

"But at the moment, we are going to have to hang fire. Whether we can bring in Marc, I don't know."
