94:00: Final whistle It's over! That's a handy point for Harriers.
93:00: Let off! Dean Coleman's poor kick was chased down by Marc Williams. It bounces past the stunned keeper, who is rooted to the spot, but it just flies wide.
91:00: Chris McPhee sees a skidding 20-yard effort fly wide.
90:00: Harriers raid forward but Aaron Farrell's shot is well-blocked.
89:00: Wrexham are still looking dangerous, this time Andy Fleming heads wide after a raking cross from Christian Smith.
85:00: Substitution Aaron Farrell replaces Matthew Barnes-Homer.
83:00: Dean Coleman did very well to get behind a slippery effort from Wes Baynes, after Harriers hadn't cleared his corner properly.
79:00: The rain continues to lash down and the pitch is very greasy. Anything could happen.
76:00: Duane Courtney wins a corner off Mark Jones. Lee Baker sends it in and Martin Riley's near post header is over the bar.
74:00: The home fans jeer when Andy Fleming trips as he competes with Gavin Caines for the ball. The referee waves play on.
72:00: Yellow card Andy Fleming is booked for a challenge on Darryl Knights.
71:00: Andy Fleming handles Darryl Knight's pass. Lee Baker swings in a free-kick that Brian Smikle heass firmly just wide.
70:00: Substitution Mark Jones comes on for Wrexham's Neil Taylor.
67:00: It's end to end stuff. Wes Baynes lashes a shot across the face of goal.
63:00: Substitution Darryl Knights replaces David McDermott in a like-for-like change.
61:00: A big miss by Adrian Cieslewicz. He scoots past Martin Riley. He skips past Dean Coleman as he comes out but with an open net he prods it wide.
59:00: What a save from Dean Coleman! He dives at full-stretch to get a hand to Andy Fleming's excellent 30-yard effort.
58:00: Substitution Harriers, urged on by the wind, are starting to push Wrexham back. Daniel Andrew is replaced by Lee Baker.
55:00: Harriers win a corner but Daniel Andrews' ball is headed away by Mike Williams.
54:00: After a slow start, Harriers are building some pressure. Two Chris McPhee crosses have tested Wrexham in this strong wind.
49:00: Marc Williams powers into the box but goes down very easily under pressure from Duane Courtney.
48:00: Marc Williams watches a rising 20-yard effort fly just wide of Dean Coleman's goal.
48:00: Neil Taylor ghosts into the box unmarked to latch onto Christian Smith's ball but his header is easy for Dean Coleman to take.
45:00: Half time Plus three: That's a breathless first half over. So far neither team has been able to defend. If Harriers can tighten up, this game is up for grabs.
45:00: Plus three minutes: Dean Coleman gets down well to save Marc Williams' shot, who had wriggled past Daniel Andrew.
44:00: David McDermott did well to stay on his feet and force a shot that Chris Maxwell, who has been very unconvincing, parries it and Robbie Matthews intelligently nudges to Chris McPhee on the right hand post and he makes no mistake.
44:00: Goal! Chris McPhee scores!
43:00: Harriers are furious when the referee blows for a Wrexham cornee when it looked like a goal-kick. Once again Wes Baynes' delivery causes all kinds of problems but Dean Coleman and a mass of Harriers players clear it off the line.
38:00: This game is so open! First, Brian Smikle's shot is parried by Chris Maxwell, as Matthew Barnes-Homer pounces his effort is blocked by Curtis Obeng.
35:00: Goal! Mike Williams takes advantage of some static Harriers defending when he meets Wes Baynes' corner and heads it into the back of the net.
32:00: That goal came from a long ball from Gavin Caines. Robbie Matthews' header evaded the Wrexham defence and as the ball bobbled around the area, Smikle lashed it into the back of the net.
32:00: Goal! Brian Smikle slams home a leveller!
30:00: Matthew Barnes-Homer fires in a decent 25-yard effort that Chris Maxwell gets down well to save. He spills it but no Harriers player had the prescence of mine to run in.
26:00: Goal! Harriers are undone when Mike Williams slides in to meet Wes Baynes' free-kick and prods the ball into the back of the net. Martin Riley had fouled Marc Williams to concede the free-kick.
23:00: A big miss by Matthew Barnes-Homer. David McDermott does well to speed into the box and deliver a low ball that a diving Chris Maxwell cam only get a hand to. The ball hits a defender and falls to Barnes-Homer who stabs it over from close range.
22:00: Good save by Dean Coleman! He dived down to his right and got a hand to Marc Williams shot. Harriers had been opened up by Adrian Cieslewicz, who teased Daniel Andrew and found the striker.
16:00: Yellow card Harriers win a corner but as Wrexham clear it, Dean Bennett is brought down by Christian Smith, who is booked. Daniel Andrew's free-kick was just wide from a yard outside the box.
15:00: Chris McPhee's long range strike is deflected wide off Curtis Obeng.
12:00: Robbie Matthews heads over a hard chance. It was good play by David McDermott, who played Chris McPhee down the right. His first cross was blocked by Mike Williams but he then delivered a decent ball.
10:00: Wrexham have started to dominate possession here. Harriers have needed a couple of good interceptions just outside the box to snuff out any danger from Wrexham.
8:00: Marc Williams wins a corner off Dean Bennett. Wes Baynes' set piece is easily cleared by Brian Smikle at the near post.
6:00: Harriers look comfortable but have yet to string anything threatening together just yet.
3:00: It's been a slow start but from a Daniel Andrew's free-kick, Brian Smikle delivers a header which keeper Chris Maxwell tips over the bar. Strangely, the referee blows for a goal-kick.
0:00: HARRIERS will have to wait to see who they play in the FA Trophy, as the third qualifying round replay between Witton Albion and Matlock Town has been postponed to Tuesday, December 1 because of the bad weather.
0:00: It's a blustery, drizzly night in North Wales, which could have an effect on the game. Incidentally tonight's referee is Richard Wigglesworth, who controversially sent off striker Robbie Matthews in the 2-1 home loss to Luton Town.
0:00: Wrexham manager Dean Saunders made one change to the team that drew 0-0 at Wrexham, with the injured Mansour Assoumani replaced by Neil Taylor. Wrexham had Chris Maxwell in goal and Curtis Obeng (RB), Ashley Westwood (CB), Frank Sinclair (CB) and Mike Williams (LB) making up the back four. Adrian Cieslewicz is on the right side of midfield, with Taylor on the left and Andy Fleming and Chris Smith in the central positions of the midfield. The Dragons have Wes Baynes and Marc Willians up front.
0:00: Good evening Harriers fans! Welcome to Shuttle Online's live match coverage from the Racecourse Ground. Mark Yates makes one change from the side that defeated Kettering on Saturday. David McDermott returns to the starting line-up and Darryl Knights is dropped to the bench. Lee Baker, back after a three-match ban, only makes it to the bench as Peterborough's Daniel Andrew, coming close to the end of his month's loan, keeps his place in the side.
