MANAGER Steve Watson has called York City's 2-2 draw at Kidderminster Harriers "two points dropped" after his side failed to press home their advantage.

Twice the Minstermen led at Kidderminster - who, before kick off, were second in National League North - and twice they conceded an equaliser.

The first - a Keith Lowe header just before the break - was disappointing as York had looked generally the stronger side in the opening 45.

And though the second was a fine strike, it punished York for having their noses in front through a Sean Newton penalty but neglecting to show the necessary endeavour to shore up the three points.

"Two points dropped, absolutely," was Watson's verdict. "And we've just, in no uncertain terms, had a very big inquest into that. It's not really rocket science why it happens.

"Their first goal (was) very much against the run of play, very much an error in the box where we haven't claimed the ball.

"The way we were playing, we had no problems at half-time knowing that we could come out and create more. Again, we didn't make the most of our opportunities. That's obviously a concern - not a concern because of the quality we've got, but why we're not transferring all the stuff we do on a daily basis into a game.

"Then you start the second half again. Again Michael Woods is causing a problem going the other way and got us a deserved penalty but the reaction after that was disappointing.

"It's not a technical thing, it's not a tactical thing, it's purely a confidence and a bottle thing to keep playing, keep the ball. I just thought we kept turning the ball. We almost invited pressure when we've got the players and the quality to dominate in those positions.

"We didn't and that's really disappointing."
