93:00: Mark Creighton's flick header is well-held by Ross Atkins.

88:00: Dannie Bulman's shot comes off Gavin Caines for a corner. They defend the set-piece well.

70:00: Ashley Cain sees a 20-yard shot fly wide.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 66:00: Substitution Marcus Bignot replaces Dean Bennett. Can the popular defender make a difference?

Kidderminster Shuttle: Goal icon 65:00: Goal! Damn! Matt Green levels the scores for Oxford. Martin Riley and Ross Atkins were both caught out there and the striker stole in.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 62:00: Substitution Oxford sub: Sam Deering for Simon Clist.

58:00: It's pretty scrappy at the moment, with Oxford still searching. Ross Atkins dives down on Damin Batt's low right-wing ball.

56:00: Martin Riley does well to come out and intercepted Ashley Cain's pass to James Constable.

Kidderminster Shuttle: whistle icon 46:00: Half time 45+2: That's half-time. Harriers are deservedly up front. Oxford may have had more of the ball but the visitors have been the most composed and far sharper in every department.

45:00: 45+1: Darryl Knights does really well to release Damian Spencer down the right. Unfortunately, the hitman's cross sails behind.

44:00: Speedy break led by Chris McPhee wins a corner. It's wasted though as it's played to John Finnigan, who under pressure, puts the ball out for a throw-in.

41:00: From Lee Baker's free-kick. Brian Smikle steals in and forces a point-blank save from Billy Turley. The flag went up for offside anyway.

Kidderminster Shuttle: yellow card 40:00: Yellow card Damian Spencer is pulled down as he brushes past Jake Wright. The defender is rightly booked.

37:00: James Constable sees an overhead kick go over the bar. It's his first attempt on goal.

36:00: Matt Green powers forward but his pass to James Constable is backheeled by the striker out of his own path. Kevin Sandwith fires a speculative effort very wide.

35:00: A good moment goes to waste, when Darryl Knights' free-kick from the right is easily headed away.

31:00: From an Oxford free-kick, Adam Chapman's delivery is missed by everyone.

30:00: Oxford play the ball around and pin Harriers back but a poor pass by the hosts lets them off the hook.

Kidderminster Shuttle: yellow card 27:00: Yellow card Jamie Cook is booked for handling the ball.

25:00: Very cool by Ross Atkins. He deftly controls Gavin Caines' heavy back pass and then boots it up field.

20:00: Harriers survive a scare. From a corner, Mark Creighton rises heighest but his header clips the bar.

18:00: That was close! From a Harriers free-kick, Damian Spencer heads wide at the far post.

17:00: Apologies for the delay - technical problems. It was a great counter-attack by Harriers from an Oxford corner. Duane Courtney started it, Darryl Knights released Dean Bennett smartly and his low cross was finished well from close range by Brian Smikle.

Kidderminster Shuttle: Goal icon 16:00: Goal! Brian Smikle scores!

9:00: Ross Atkins is showing what he's capable of. First, he dives to his right and gets a hand to Simon Clist's firm low effort. Then he makes a double save. He blocks Simon Clist's firm low effort and then when Jamie Cook comes in to pounce on the loose ball, Atkins denies him.

8:00: Harriers are opened up. James Constable squeezes past Martin Riley and pulls the ball back but Duane Courtney clears.

7:00: Brian Smikle is offside. Damian Spencer gets up after being elbowed in the face, the big striker shakes it off.

2:00: Darryl Knights spurns a golden chance to fire Harriers ahead. Dean Bennett sweeps in a low ball from the left but Knights fires over from close range.

2:00: James Constable does little to win over his former fans by barging into Ross Atkins at he takes a high ball.

0:00: HARRIERS' fans are started to arrive, looks as though they will easily beat the 160 that came to them Blue Square Premier clash at the Kassam a fortnight ago.

0:00: Oxford manager Chris Wilder clearly feels the FA Trophy is a lower priority than promotion to the Football League as he has made six changes to the that beat Rushden and Diamonds. Billy Turley makes a rare start in goal, with Kevin Sandwith (LB), Mark Creighton (CB), Jake Wright (CB) and Damian Batt (RB) in the back four. In midfield, Jamie Cook will be on the left wing, Adam Chapman the right, with Dannue Bulman and Simon Clist in the central positions. James Constable is partnered by Matt Green.

0:00: Good afternoon Harriers fans! Welcome to Shuttle Online's live coverage of this FA Trophy quarter-final from the Kassam Stadium. Harriers manager Steve Burr makes three changes to the side that defeated Forest Green last week. Robbie Matthews is dropped to the bench and Marc Goodfellow is cup-tied, so it's the little and large strike pair of Damian Spencer and Darryl Knights. With Dean Coleman awaiting surgery on a groin problem, keeper Ross Atkins (who joined this week from Derby on-loan) makes his debut. Marcus Bignot starts on the bench after joining the club but there's no place in the squad for Port Vale loan hitman James Lawrie.
