LYE Town boss Craig Harris was full of praise for his players this week after they pulled off a precious 2-1 win over Leicestershire side Quorn in the Midland League Premier.

New signing from Cradley Town Lee Chilton clinched victory with a decisive second goal right at the start of second half exchanges after Jack Till had fired the Lye in front.

Harris said: "We really needed this win.

"I cannot knock the players because they have given me everything recently and never once have their heads dropped.

"But what we've been lacking is a bit of craft and creativity and that's what Lee Chilton brought to the side.

"It wasn't all plain sailing. Quorn came back at us and it was a case of hanging on at the end, but we weathered the storm".

Harris singled out the contributions made by substitutes Brad Drew and Joe Finch.

Drew has arrived at Lye from Tipton Town and finished the game at full back while 18-year-old Finch made his debut in centre midfield after impressing with Lye's youth team.

Harris claimed: "Both are young boys, but neither of them looked out of place.

"There were quite a number of guys from the youth team at the game and Joe didn't let them down."

Lye have little time to rest on their laurels as they travel to face high flying Worcester City at Bromsgrove Sporting's ground this Saturday.

Harris added: "The win under our belt will do us wonders and I'm hoping that we can kick on from here".
