STEVE Burr felt his FA Cup heroes deserved their stroke of luck after the 0-0 draw with Peterborough United.

The Carpetmen more than matched their rivals from League One, with Joe Lolley and Lee Vaughan drawing fine saves from keeper Bobby Olejnik.

But Peterborough felt they had a perfectly good goal ruled out near the end.

Posh hit the woodwork three times in a matter of seconds, with Britt Assombalonga's effort believed by boss Darren Ferguson to have crossed the line.

“I still make the result being 0-0 and nothing will change that," said Harriers' manager.

" It’s obviously a decision which has gone for us, I haven’t seen it but if it is over it’s a bad decision.

“I thought it had gone in yes, and that’s from the dugout.

“To see 60 or 70 yards it’s very difficult to see whether it’s gone over but if it has it’s a decision which has gone for us and against Darren."

He added: “We felt we had a couple of good chances and a bit more care, when Lee Vaughan had an opportunity to square it to Amari, I think he was all on his own but he’s gone for the shot.

“Those are the things which sometimes go for you on the day, sometimes they go for you and sometimes they don’t.

“I’m just pleased with the effort and commitment the lads put in. I never fault their commitmemt anyway here but I thought we played some good stuff."

Harriers will now go to London Road for the Third Round replay on Tuesday, January 14.

Kidderminster though had their chances in an entertaining clash.

Lolley's fierce drive hit a defender and deflected wide and the winger also saw a low shot saved by Olejnik.

Lee Vaughan's stinging effort forced The Posh keeper into action and the adventurous right-back had Kidderminster's best chance in the 63rd minute.

He raced onto Kyle Storer's superb pass but instead off passing to the free Amari Morgan-Smith, he shot wide.

Burr commented: “I thought we played some good stuff and brought some good saves out of their keeper.

“We were disappointed not to score in the first half but obviously withstood a lot of pressure in the second half, we are pleased to have another crack at it.

“It was an exciting game, considering there were no goals.

"But I think that’s the nature of two sides who want to attack. We are no different.

“We are just pleased to get another go at it over at Peterborough in a couple of weeks.”

Danny Lewis was named man of the match after a string of saves, denying Lee Tomlinson and Assombalonga.
