94:00: Final whistle It's over! A pretty easy win for Harriers, the only regret would have been they could have won by much more.
90:00: Substitution Sam Coulter replaces Jake Rea.
89:00: Good goal by Harriers. Darryl Knights played Damian Spencer in and his cross was deflected to Duane Courtney, who turned and shot past the keeper.
89:00: Goal! Duane Courtney puts Chester out of their misery!
86:00: Damian Spencer pushes over James Owen as he tries to win the ball and have a free-kick to defend. Tim Ryan's shot takes a deflection and flies wide.
83:00: Duane Courtney brings down James Owen just outside the box. Glenn Rule's free-kick hits the wall and goes behind for a corner.
80:00: Chris McPhee wins a corner. It's taken short between Daniel Andrew and Darryl Knights and Chester win the ball and launch a counter-attack, luckily it comes to nothing.
78:00: Damian Spencer is pulled back by Tim Ryan. From Darryl Knights' free-kick, Martin Riley can't get his header on target and the danger passes.
75:00: With Robbie Matthews and Damian Spencer up front, Harriers have a front two who will dominate in the air. Time to rains down the crosses on Chester.
73:00: Substitution Aaron Farrell is replaced by Damian Spencer.
71:00: Damian Spencer is ready to come on for Harriers...
69:00: Darryl Knights slips down the right and his low shot tests John Danby. It's the first 'moment' of any kind .
69:00: Substitution Nathan Hayward replaces Dean Bennett in order to add verve to Harriers' midfield.
63:00: Substitution Ryan Davidson comes on for Chester's Ben Jones.
60:00: Chris McPhee picks out Aaron Farrell in the box but he failed to control the ball.
56:00: Harriers are going for it. Dean Bennett fires in a low shot from the edge of the area, which John Danby smothers well. Moments later Daniel Andrew delivers a raking cross from the left, that Darryl Knights can't quite connect with.
55:00: Chris McPhee sees a first-time effort fly over after good work by Daniel Andrew and Aaron Farrell.
54:00: A decent Harriers move is wasted. Aaron Farrell slips Brian Smikle down the left. He tries to cut the ball back but it's blocked by James Owen.
52:00: Darryl Knightd fires in a fine 20-yard effort that John Danby does well to dive down and block. As Aaron Farrell rushes into pounce on the all the referee blows for offside.
48:00: Not a great start by Harriers. Robbie Matthews flicks the ball on but John Danby rushes out to beat Darryl Knights to the ball.
45:00: Half time Plus two mins: Harriers could be out of sight but have dropped down too many gears. A big improvement is needed.
45:00: Plus two mins: Aaron Farrell is a mystery. Alert and eager to run at Chester's defence but inside the box totally indecisive. He fluffed his lines when Chris McPhee bustled into the box and squared the ball to him but failed to react and the chance to fire Harriers' 2-0 up went begging.
44:00: If John Finnigan is interested is becoming Harriers' manager permanently, then he needs to inspire his troops. After a very bright 15 minute spell the have dropped to Chester's poor level.
42:00: There's been nothing to report here for the last few minutes. Chester have seen some of the ball but have produced nothing of quality.
37:00: There's no pattern of play from either side, with both resorting to rushed long balls forward.
35:00: After a great spell of pressure by Harriers, the game has gone a bit flat.
30:00: Robbie Matthews has another chance. This time Chester's defence completely misses a cross by Aaron Farrell on the left. Matthews is completely unmarked but despite stretching out a long leg, he can't bring the ball under control.
28:00: Harriers are slicing through leaky Chester like a hot knife through butter. Brian Smikle played in Aaron Farrell, who raced to ther byline and pulled the ball back, only for John Danby to dive and block it.
23:00: Apart from the dangerous Lloyd Ellams, Chester look in big trouble. Harriers have taken total control.
20:00: Duane Courtney's shot is deflected behind for a corner. From the set-piece Gavin Caines shoots at the keeper.
18:00: Dean Coleman does really well to tip over Lloyd Ellams' vicious long-range effort, that took a deflection off Gavin Caines.
16:00: Goal! Gavin Caines stoops to score. The goal came from a corner. Robbie Matthews heads it across and the centreback pounces at the near post.
13:00: So close! Brian Smikle and Aaron Farrell combine to great affect to set up Robbie Matthews. The hitman is eight yards out with just the keeper to beat but shot straight at him.
11:00: Almost a lovely break by Harriers. Brian Smikle picks up the ball in midfield and slips Aaron Farrell down the left. He roves into box but Sean Kellys puts him off with a strong challenge.
8:00: From the corner, Martin Riley rises well but his header hits the upright and bounces away.
7:00: Aaron Farrell has a bit of luck when the the ball falls to him in the box. His shot was flying over anyway but former Harriers John Danby tips it over.
5:00: Dean Coleman blocks Lloyd Ellams' shot behind for a corner after Daniel Andrew gave the ball away.
3:00: Robbie Matthews rises to meet a long ball forward but Aaron Farell is beaten to it by keeper John Danby.
1:00: Chester hitman Lloyd Ellams spins 20-yards out and shoots wide.
0:00: Caretaker manager John Finnigan hasn't went for anything too adventorous in his first game in charge. He'd opted for Aaron Farrell up front with Robbie Matthews, with Damian Spencer on the bench. There's no place at all for Ryan Charles.
