Kidderminster Shuttle: whistle icon 94:00: Final whistle It's over! A disappointing result because Harriers bossed the first half but did not take their chances. Forest Green improved dramatically after the break but Harriers will feel this is two points dropped.

94:00: Duane Courtney delivers a long throw-in but Brian Smikle is adjudged to be pulling on a Forest player.

93:00: Phew! Steve Davies powers down the right and delivers a cross, luckily it's too long for anybody in the box.

90:00: Robbie Matthew rises to meet Lee Baker's cross but he can only get an weak flick to the ball and it's easy for Terry Burton to take.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 88:00: Substitution Forest change - Conal Platt replaces the tiring Chris Curran.

86:00: Chris McPhee wins the ball off a tiring Chris Curran. Kyle Hadley powers down the right but the linesman flags for a Forest throw-in, despite it looking as though the winger was fouled by Paul Stonehouse.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 84:00: Substitution Kyle Hadley replaces Dean Bennett. Harriers are certainly going all out for it.

Kidderminster Shuttle: yellow card 82:00: Yellow card Harriers are swarming all round the Forest Green area when Dean Bennett gives the ball to Chris Curran. As the midfield breaks away from him, he tries to drag him down and gets booked.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 77:00: Substitution Robbie Matthews replaces David McDermott. Can the big striker make the difference? For Forest Green, Jonathan smith comes off for debutant striker Loren Maxwell.

74:00: After sucessfully defending a Forest corner, David McDermott leads a counter-attack. He skips past Lee Ayres and tries to sweep the ball from the right to Darryl Knights but the ball is too long.

73:00: Robbie Matthews is ready to come on for Harriers.

Kidderminster Shuttle: yellow card 70:00: Yellow card Lee Baker powers past one Forest Green player but is cynically brought down by Lee Ayres, who is showes a yellow card.

67:00: Matthew Barnes-Homers fires in a low shot that Terry Burton saves well.

67:00: Harriers have a decent claim for a penalty. David McDermott squares the ball across but Brian Smikle looks as though he's blocked by Ollie Thorne as he tries to reach it.

65:00: David Brown drives down the left wing, cuts in and shoots into the side netting from an acute angle.

62:00: All of a sudden Harriers are the team under pressure. Steve Davies wins a corner but the away side defend well.

Kidderminster Shuttle: yellow card 61:00: Yellow card Darryl Knights is fouled by Lewis Spence, who is booked.

60:00: That was close for Harriers! Chris McPhee releases David McDermott down the right wing. He squares the ball to Matthew Barnes-Homer in the box but it's a little long and the danger passes.

57:00: Brian Smikle races onto Matthew Barnes-Homer but Terry Burton does well to rush out and smother his shot.

50:00: Close! Lee Baker slides into to clear Sean Rigg's shot away.

50:00: Forest Green have improved and are making a fist of it now. Jonathan Smith mis-controls Paul Stonehouse's cross.

46:00: Harriers start brightly in search of a killer second goal. Lee Baker's defence is missed by the home defence. Matthew Barnes-Homer slips it to Chris McPhee, who cross/shot sails over the bar.

Kidderminster Shuttle: whistle icon 45:00: Half time Plus two mins: The most comfortable half of Harriers' campaign comes to an end. They totally dominated midfield. While there are some faint signs Forest Green are coming back into the game, they could scarcely be any worse.

42:00: Darryl Knights drives a powerful low shot at the keeper. Either side of Terry Burton that would have been a goal.

41:00: Harriers are almost prized open. A stretching David Brown intercepts a pass and steers it to Sean Rigg, who cuts in from the left wing and drives a shot across the face of goal.

37:00: David McDermott and Matthew Barnes-Homer both draw regulation saves from Terry Burton. It really is very easy for Harriers.

36:00: Forest Green are trying to attack. Sean Rigg drives goalwards but shoots over from the edge of the box.

33:00: Jonathan Smith sees a strong long range shot fly over Dean Coleman's bar.

31:00: Close again! This time a fiercely struck Darryl Knights corner ricochets off Martin Riley and flies wide.

30:00: Matthew Barnes-Homer lashes a 25-yard free-kick just wide. A good effort from the hitman.

30:00: Matthew Barnes-Homer lashes a 25-yard free-kick just wide. A good effort from the hitman.

26:00: Forest Green Rovers have their first shot on target but it's took weak to worry Dean Coleman. The hosts had a central free-kick 30-yards out. It's played very short to Steve Davies, whose low shot trickles through the wall into the keeper's arms.

23:00: Harriers are literally camped in Forest Green Rovers' half. Keeper Dean Coleman will be getting very lonely at this rate.

19:00: Harriers have cranked up the pressure. David McDermott sees a skiddig 30-yard effort fly wide. Moments later Matthew Barnes-Homer stretches to reach Chris McPhee's cross from the left but puts the ball over the bar.

16:00: That was neat interplay by David McDermott and Darryl Knights. Knights slipped a lovely through ball into the box, which Chris McPhee races onto and slotted the ball into Terry Burton's bottom left corner.

Kidderminster Shuttle: Goal icon 16:00: Goal! Chris McPhee scores!

15:00: Harriers have had most of the ball and pushed Forest Green back. At the moment they seem happy to probe the home defence.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 14:00: Substitution Jeffrey Imudia limps off and is replaced by Lee Ayres.

11:00: The first real moment of excitement has the away fans cheering. Darryl Knights fires in a poor shot that keeper Terry Burton blocks firmly.

9:00: Paul Stonehouse wins a corner. Chris Curran plays it short, gets the ball back but his cross is headed away by David McDermott.

5:00: There's a break in play when Jeffrey Imudia needs treatment after losing out to Darryl Knights. Just before there had been some excellent play, with Dean Bennett and Chris McPhee combining well but David McDermott's stray pass giving the ball back to Forest Green.

3:00: David McDermott plays Matthew Barnes-Homer down the right but his cross is too long. There's a fairly stiff breese running through the ground.
