65:00: Dean Coleman does well to deny Sam Deering, who outpaced Harriers' defence.

63:00: Harriers have a corner to defend. It's a good ball by Sam Deering but Dean Coleman is fouled by Rhys Day.

46:00: I don't know if it's the half-time biscuits or the great first half but I'm really looking forward to the second half.

Kidderminster Shuttle: whistle icon 45:00: Half time Plus two: It has been a breathless first half and Harriers have grown in stature. Marc Goodfellow could have scored as well.

45:00: Plus one: Brian Smikle breaks on the left but his square pass to Chris McPhee is blocked.

Kidderminster Shuttle: yellow card 44:00: Yellow card Chris McPhee is elbowed by Jake Wright as Harrier go on the attack. Marc Goodfellow's free-kick is headed away by Oxford.

42:00: More good keeping by Coleman. He comes out positively and takes a Jamie Cook free-kick.

40:00: Oxford corner: Chris McPhee heads away.

38:00: Martin Riley does well really. He just puts James Constable off as he tries to reach Jamie Cook's low ball. The Oxford man calls for a penalty but it's ignored.

36:00: Ryan Clarke does well to deny Marc Goodfellow! This is a breathless game.

Kidderminster Shuttle: yellow card 34:00: Yellow card James Constable floors Lee Baker. The defender has blood streaming from his nose. The striker is shown his ninth yellow of the season.

32:00: Brian Smikle does well to hold up the ball in the box and play it to Marc Goodfellow on edge of the box. He fires in a low shot but Ryan Clarke makes a decent save.

30:00: Martin Riley is harshly adjudged to have handled a ball from Alfie Potter on the wing. Jamie Cook delivers a free-kick on the right and Rhys Day stabs it wide.

27:00: Dean Coleman does really well to come out and take hold of a in-swinging free-kick. The Harriers fans chant 'Deano, Deano'.

25:00: James Constable goes down between Duane Courtney and Gavin Caines in the box and looks annoyed that he doesn't get a penalty. Naughty boy!

21:00: Robbie Matthews misses a great chance. It was lovely play by Harriers. Matthews did well to hold up the ball just outside the box, slipped it to Brian Smikle. The forward plays it cleverly to Lee Baker, who delivers a low raking cross but Matthews shins it wide. Very encouraging.

18:00: Harriers have done well to take the sting out of Oxford. It's even stevens now.

15:00: Great break by Harriers from a corner. Dean Bennett releases Marc Goodfellow on the left. He runs with the ball too long but his ball looked as though it came off Damian Batt for a corner but the referee blew for a goal-kick.

13:00: Marc Goodfellow sees a chance from 25-yards out and a decent hit flies wide.

9:00: John Finnigan's firm challenge on Dannie Bulman in the centre circle gives Oxford a free-kick. Jake Wright's ball is a poor one and Harriers clear well.

8:00: Oxford are still bossing the game but a poor back pass outs Dean Coleman in trouble, he does well to keep calm and pass the ball to Duane Courtney.

3:00: Brian Smikle wins a corner. Marc Goodfellow plays is short to Brian Smikle, gets in back and loops a cross in. Robbie Matthews grts a head to it but there's no danger for keeper Ryan Clarke.

2:00: Harriers look very sluggish and concede a corner. Jamie Cook's ball is decent but James Constable's first touch is poor.

1:00: Alfie Potter almost scores inside 20 seconds. Alfie Potters cuts in from the left cut shoots just side.

0:00: Oxford boss Chris Wilder had the luxury of a strong squad to call upon. After their FA Trophy draw at Chelmsford, former Harriers striker James Constable returns as captain up front, with Sam Deering in support. Ryan Clarke, another ex-Harriers, is in goal, with the defence of Damian Batt (RB), Jake Wright (CB), Rhys Day (CB) and Anthony Tonkin (LB) ahead of him. Alfie Potter (right) and Jamie Cook (left) will patrol Oxford's flanks in midfield, with Dannie Bulman and Simon Clist in the central positions. Former Harriers skipper Mark Creighton is only on the bench.

0:00: Steve Burr makes three changes from the side that saw off Worcester in the FA Trophy. Dean Coleman makes a return to the starting line-up after his errors at Crawley. Damian Spencer, whose loan ends today, is on the bench, with Robbie Matthews selected as Harriers' only recognised striker. The hitman, back after a two-game absence with illness, will be supported by Chris McPhee. Winger Marc Goodfellow also makes his debut for Harriers since joining on loan.

0:00: Good afternoon Harriers fans! Welcome to Shuttle Online's live match coverage from the Kassam Stadium.
