46:00: Substitution Craig Rocastle replaces Conal Platt for Forest Green.
45:00: Plus one: That's the first half over. Harriers more than deserve their lead but they are only playing in sporadic bursts of quality. A bit more consistency and this could be a big win as Forest Green haven't threatened at all.
38:00: Great play! Duane Courtney's rising shot from the edge of the box is tipped over by Danny Ireland. Good play by Robbie Matthews started the ball rolling as well.
34:00: Chris McPhee loses the ball to David Brown in midfield and he releases Reece Styche. The striker out paces Gavin Caines but shoots off target.

25:00: Good ball by Duane Courtney. He lofts one in from just inside his half. With Robbie Matthews lurking, keeper Danny Ireland punches the ball away.
20:00: Been very quiet after the goal but Forest Green have tried to push. They come close when Conal Platt fires in a shot from the right that skids across the face of goal.
16:00: From a corner, Robbie Matthews heads over.
13:00: That was a wonderful ball by Marc Goodfellow. Chris McPhee won the ball on the edge of Harriers' box. He passes to Smikle, who slipped it in the centre circle to John Finnigan, who bypassed marker and slipped the ball to Good fellow in the right. In stead of running wide he dinks a 20-yard ball into the box that completely outfoxes the away side and Brian Smikle gets between the keeper and nods the ball into the back of the net.
12:00: Goal! Super goal by Brian Smikle!
