- Venue: Aggborough
- Final score:
- Kidderminster Harriers 3 - 0 Altrincham
94:00: Final whistle It's all over! Harriers have all three points and make it two wins in a row. I'm sure Mark Yates will have something to say about the referee, who was very poor today.
94:00: Darryl Knights tees up a shot but sees his 20-yard effort fly over the bar.
92:00: Altrincham are eager to grab a consolation effort. Chris Denham hits the bar, moments later Colin Little sees a header go wide.
90:00: Brian Smikle is named man of the match. Harriers have four minutes of injury time to cope with.
90:00: Chris McPhee hits the bar! It was slick counter-attack and Darryl Knights did well to play him in.
84:00: Colin Little fires in a shot but Dean Coleman gets down well and makes a comfortable save.
82:00: Mark Yates has a go at David McDermott who gives the ball away, even though Duane Courtney was free on the right wing.
77:00: Substitution Darryl Knights comes on for Kyle Hadley.
77:00: Brian Smikle is denied a hat-trick when Stuart Coburn blocks his shot. It was good play by Chris McPhee, who slotted the ball to him after James Smith was robbed of the ball.
72:00: A flowing Harriers move ends disappointingly when Lee Baker's left wing cross was too long.
71:00: Substitution John Finnigan is clapped off when he is replaced by David McDermott.
68:00: Lee Baker dives down to block Chris Denham's shot from a corner.
66:00: Good play by Harriers. Duane Courtney speeds past his marker and passes to Kyle Hadley on the right side of the box. He skips past one defender but is eventually crowded out.
65:00: So far, the second half hasn't matched the first for incident. That won't bother Harriers, who looked pretty comfortable.
60:00: Lee Baker powers into a central position, swaps passes with Brian Smikle and tries to release Chris McPhee, who is a fration offside.
56:00: Substitution Nicky Clee comes on for Chris Senior.
56:00: Big delaey here as Chris Senior needs a stretcher. The striker injured himself while battling for a throw-in. It was an innocuous incident but it looks bad.
52:00: Substitution Robbie Williams replaces by Tom Kearney.
51:00: Chris McPhee limps off after falling awkwardly but is okay to continue.
50:00: Chris McPhee races onto a Dean Bennett flick and powers goalwards but it takes a good challenge by Greg Young to stop him.
47:00: Half time Plus two mins: The referee is escorted off by the stewards as a furious Graham Heathcote tries to have a word with him. Neither manager is going to have anything nice to say about the officials.
46:00: Substitution Altrincham made a substitution at the second half, bringing on goal-poacher Colin Little for winger Danny Heffernan.
46:00: Harriers caught out Altrincham. It was Kyle Hadley's cross and the unmarked Smikle knocked it in at the far post.
46:00: Goal! Thirty seconds into the half, Brian Smikle scores.
45:00: Yellow card Kearney is booked for that horrendous challenge on Hadley.
45:00: Kyle Hadley luckily evades an absolutely vicious scything tackle from Tom Kearney near the centre circle. That was dangerous play by the Altrincham man.
43:00: Harriers look sharp and win a corner. Kyle Hadley's delivery fell to Brian Smikle nd his smashed effort canons off Tom Sharpe and flies over the bar.
40:00: Chris McPhee drags a shot wide after latching onto Brian Smikle's deft flick-on header.
38:00: This is becoming very bad tempered. Chris McPhee pushes Greg Young into keeper Stuarty Coburn, the referee ignores it though.
36:00: Red card Brian Smikle is hacked down by Shaun Densmore and the referee shows the Altrincham man a straight red. That has levelled things up nicely.
34:00: Substitution Matthew Barnes-Homer, who picked up a knock scoring the goal, has been replaced by centrback Tom Sharpe. That means Chris McPhee will play up front.
30:00: Chris McPhee has slotted into defence for the time being.
23:00: Matthew Barnes-Homer beat Altrincham's square defence. Keeper Stuart Coburn races out to meet Dean Bennett's ball forward but the striker stretches out a leg to nudge it over him and into the back of the net.
22:00: Goal! Matthew Barnes-Homer scores!
20:00: From an Altrincham corner, Greg Young heads well wide. Harriers have defenders Liam Dolman and Tom Sharpe warming up.
17:00: Good goalkeeper by Dean Coleman.From the resulting free-kick the ball bursts through the wall but the Harriers keeper, who saw it late, smothers it well.
16:00: Martin Riley can count himself very unlucky. Dale Johnson chased Danny Heffernan's long ball foward. He mis-controlled the ball but Riley seems to stumble onto the Altrincham man and bring him down. He's the last man is sent off. Very unlucky.
16:00: Red card Martin Riley has been shown a straight red card.
14:00: Harriers are playing very well. There's some lovely interplay between Matthew Barnes-Homer and Chris McPhee to release Kyle Hadley down the right. He sweeps in a dangerous cross that just evades Smikle and Barnes-Homer.
11:00: From out of nowhere scores. Kyle Hadley latches onto Dean Bennett's pass on the right. He slips past the keep and slots in a shot. The ball comes off a defender and Smikle is on hand to stab it home from close range.
10:00: Brian Smikle scores!
9:00: First real moment of action. Tom Kearney fires in a shot from the box that Martin Riley blocks. The ball falls to Chris Senior, who is offside.
5:00: A very subdued start to the game - neither side has done anything of note.
