57:00: Lee Featherstone needs some treatment but is okay to continue.

52:00: Chris McPhee saw a firm effort flew over the bar. It came when Aaron Jameson parried a firm corner from Daniel Andrew into the captain's path. He did well to get a shot off.
51:00: Darryl Knights slips the ball down the right but Duane Courtney checks his run and misses the ball.
48:00: The pitch has cut up really badly as the game wore on. It's been an even start to the second half.
47:00: Aaron Farrell gets wide but his cross goes out of play.
45:00: Half time Plus two mins: That's the first half over. Harriers have worked hard and had the lion's side of the play but yet to produce a moment of quality to take the lead.

0:00: GOOD afternoon Harriers fans! Welcome to Shuttle Online's live match coverage from Causeway Lane. A stomach bug has hit Harriers hard ahead of kick-off and the squad has been stretched to the limit. With Dean Coleman unwell he has been moved to the bench and Jasbir Singh has been handed his first-team debut. David McDermott is very unwell and is laid up in hospital, so the midfield has been moved around. Nathan Hayward plays in the central midfield role, with Dean Bennett on the right and Brian Smikle the left. Chris McPhee plays with Gavin Caines in central defence for the suspended Martin Riley, while Aaron Farrell partners Robbie Matthews up front.
