Thank you for joining us today. We are going to end this live blog now but keep an eye on the Kidderminster Shuttle website for updates and full story on the trouble that has unfortunately blighted today's game - which otherwise was a great day for Kidderminster in a party atmosphere. Goodnight!
Runners up presentation! http://t.co/0DGcdZqSRF— @ksshuttle 20 April 2013
Fans stay in the stands to watch the presentation of the Blue Square Bet Premier runners-up trophy presentation. Well done Kidderminster!
Harriers fans peacefully invade the pitch to celebrate the end of an incredible league season. Having picked up just five points from the first 10 games they have finished second and will be competing for promotion to the Football League in the play-offs!
It's full time and Kidderminster have won 4-0.
Their season will continue though - they are not champions because Mansfield have already won but what an atmosphere at Aggborough today.
Are we Wembley bound? Let me know what you think ...
Shame Kiddy didn't win the title today. At least they've done their bit. Just got to get to Wembley in the playoffs now! #Harriers #KHFC— @M_Kirkham 20 April 2013
Harriers did their best, but congratulations to Mansfield Town for their return to the football league.— @stupot94 20 April 2013
You can't stop the Harriers! 4:0!— @Mark4WyreForest 20 April 2013
And that continues as Harriers score again it's Harriers 4 - 0 Stockport County
But the carnival atmosphere continues at Aggborough as the fans start singing "Que sera sera ... whatever will be will be ... we're going to Wembley".
Harriers will be if they get to the play-off final. They will need to beat Wrexham in the two-legged semi-final. The first leg is at Wrexham on Tuesday night, return leg on Sunday.
Mansfield have beaten Wrexham 1-0.
It means Kidderminster cannot now win the league or automatic promotion.
Correction: We were given the wrong attendance figure before - the attendance today is actually 6,433 which is still a Conference record for the Harriers. 1,314 away fans are here.
@BroadcastMoose if Wrexham equalise Harriers will be champs. How can u say that.— @ginswin 20 April 2013
KIDDERMINSTER IS TRENDING #harriers 😝😝😝— @chloepricee 20 April 2013
For all the wrong reasons might I add...
3-0 Harriers! Unbelievable scenes since the restart - party atmosphere back in the Aggborough home end.
All eyes on Mansfield where if Wrexham score Harriers will be champions!
Harriers fans singing "Come on Wrexham". Now Harriers are winning by two goals if Wrexham can equalise at Mansfield it will be enough for Kidderminster to win the league if all stays that way!
Things have calmed down at Aggborough and we're back to a carnival atmosphere in the ground again!
The game has restarted and instantly Harriers score! 2-0 Harriers.
The police have arrived and have received a round of applause. Stockport supporters who were causing trouble are surrounded.
A section of the Stockport fans begging those causing trouble to sit down. Players are still off the pitch here!
Dark side of football rears its ugly head again this time at kiddy harriers— @benson9922 20 April 2013
It's a real shame - there has been a party atmosphere all afternoon so far at Aggborough. The match will be suspended for five minutes.
The players are called off the pitch as Stockport fans get on the pitch after Harriers score
Aggborough has just erupted! 1-0 Harriers
Come on Kidderminster harriers league 2 us just a win away #kidderminster harriers— @alexwhlan80 20 April 2013
Must mention the Stockport County fans as well - who have a battle on to stay up, they haven't stopped singing yet since about 4pm!
Back under way - one final 45 minute push needed from Harriers players and fans alike - the bid to win the league and automatic promotion is still on!
Lincoln City fan Matt Bunn is in the Aggborough crowd - his team came into their game against Hyde battling relegation but are 2-0 up and will survive as it stands, he said: "The atmosphere is amazing and Kidderminster look like that can score at any minute - and as a Lincoln fan I hope they do."
Chairman Mark Serrell on the Harriers' conference record attendance of 6,453: "It's absolutely brilliant really, really impressed great that Kidderminster and Stockport have brought a healthy following. Very excited we need to get a goal now and we will see what happens. Big thank you to all the people of Kidderminster for supporting the event."
Confirmation that the attendance today is whopping 6,453 it's an incredible number - a Conference record crowd for Harriers.
HALF TIME - Big 45 minutes ahead after the 15 minute break. Crowed stunned by the news from Field Mill that Mansfield have scored from the penalty spot.
SILENCE around Aggborough (for the first time) - apart from "1-0 to the Mansfield" from the Stockport fans.
It is indeed 1-0 to Mansfield and if it stays like that there is nothing Harriers can do about their league position.
Mansfield putting on so much pressure, off the line etc. Wrexham only threatening occasionally on the break. #harriers— @Mr_JMB 20 April 2013
Tense does seem to be the word of the day so far ... that's how it is in the crowd and on twitter:
30 min. Still 0-0 at both Aggborough AND Mansfield. Tense affair #khfc #harriers
Good luck to the harriers— @Richy882x 20 April 2013
RT @cwtkw: Come on Kidderminster Harriers! And on that note... COME ON WREXHAM!! #khfc #coyr— @mikeparkerwales 20 April 2013
#Harriers on the rack here but we have signs of waking up. Clear penno turned down— @HarriersOnline 20 April 2013
Harriers fans shout for a penalty here and immediately after hit the bar - atmosphere still tense but the home crowd has something to shout about again
More than half an hour in - still 0-0 crowd not settled down yet though! Carnival atmosphere - albeit everyone nervous!
A HUGE roar goes around Aggborough as rumour has it Wrexham have scored - sadly it's not true though! Yet.
Harriers chairman Mark Serrell says the match is starting to build:
"Atmosphere is absolutely electric the people of Kidderminster and Stockport have come out in force to support their teams and the match is starting to build. Great for everybody - if you are a player this is the sort of game you want to play in."
Fantastic atmosphere at Harriers today. Ground heaving!— @cllrfranoborski 20 April 2013
Kidderminster began the season without a win in 10. Their season since has been astonishing. Words: @StuartJamesGNM http://t.co/btTdkUOeEm— @guardian_sport 19 April 2013
Only Kiddy can rescue my weekend. COME ON HARRIERS— @LukeBowdler 20 April 2013
Good luck kidderminster harriers!! #promotion— @1153Simon 20 April 2013
We have KICKED OFF - Follow the action LIVE HERE
Wyre Forest MP Mark Garnier: "What a fantastic atmosphere. I have been wandering around the town really good to see such a positive atmosphere. I don't dare make a prediction but I have everything crossed."
The players are out and we are about ready to go in Kidderminster. HUGE HUGE game, HUGE atmosphere
Colin Youngjohns - Harriers president says: "It is a fantastic atmosphere. If we play the way we have been playing we should be good enough to do it but it all depends on what happens at Mansfield."
Incredible atmosphere here at Aggborough in the home and away ends!
Steve Miller - who is commentating on his 500th Harriers game for BBC Hereford and Worcester thinks Harriers can pull it off. He says Wrexham have eight players out of the game against Mansfield but the youngsters have enough to get the draw:
"I saw Wrexham against Braintree on Tuesday. They have got eight players out for today’s game.
"Wrexham have got enough with the young players to get a draw then it is all down to us.
"Harriers will then have to win by two clear goals. Which they can do."
Half an hour until kick off!
Indeed Harriers fever has hit Kidderminster, Wyre Forest and the whole of the West Midlands - even people who don't normally like football are following events here at Aggborough.
4:44pm Sat 20 Apr 13
Not into football but would be lovely to see the harriers win :)
Kidderminster Harriers: Danny Lewis, Lee Vaughan, Mickey Demetriou, Kyle Storer (c) , James Vincent, Anthony Malbon, Marvin Johnson, Danny Jackman, Michael Gash, Chey Dunkley, Josh Gowling. SUBS: Ryan Rowe, Callum Gittings, Keith Briggs, Nathan Vaughan, Martin Devaney.
Stockport County: Ian Ormson, Javan Vidal, Sean Newton (c), Jordan Fagbola, James Tunnicliffe, Sam Sheridan, Lee Bullock, Alex Kenyon, Matty Mainwaring, Adnan Cirak, Danny Whitehead. SUBS: Simon Hackney, Brandon Windsor, Jon Nolan, Paul Marshall, Andy Halls.
Andy Preece says Kidderminster and Mansfield will both win - That would see the Stags win the league by two points.
Mark Reynolds and son Jack think Kidderminster will do it however: "4-0 Harriers we will win the league on goal difference. The atmosphere is fantastic!"
For that to happen Mansfield would have to draw with Wrexham.
Mike Morris thinks Harriers will win today but will ultimately miss out on the league:
"I think the Harriers will win 2-1 don’t think we will win the league. Good atmosphere cannot blame the last game of the season blame the first 10," he told The Shuttle.
MIXED PREDICTIONS in the crowd here at Aggborough.
Dancers from Expressions School of Dance are entertaining the pre-match crowd on the pitch

If you simply can't wait until kick off have a gander at all this build up - http://www.kidderminstershuttle.co.uk/sport/harriers/
You can follow the game HERE with sports editor Peter McKinney.
Meanwhile, I will be concentrating on the party atmosphere inside the ground, live from Aggborough from 4pm.
Get in touch by tweeting us, commenting below or emailing me.
I want your predictions for the match and let me know if you are heading down to Aggborough this evening - how are you feeling? Let us know!
There is a long LONG way to go - but the stipulations look like this - Harriers, second in the table and two points behind leaders Mansfield Town, must beat County and hope Wrexham prevent the Stags from winning. If Mansfield draw Kidderminster must win by two clear goals.
Good afternoon everyone! The sun is shining, it's 14 degrees, the town is buzzing and we are two and a half hours from kick off - Harriers could win the Blue Square Bet Premier title and automatic promotion to the Football League! And the worst that could happen - we make the playoffs.
