9:39pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Final whistle Lloyd Kerry is denied by Simon Brown. The whistle blows but that was a much-improved result by Harriers.
9:36pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Darryl Knights deserves a goal but it won't happen. This time he fires goalwards but it comes off Kevin Roberts.
9:35pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Substitution Lloyd Kerry is booked for a foul on Kevin Roberts.
9:32pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Harriers are worth the win here but it's nip and tuck. Luke Prosser does really well to get his head to the ball in the area after Rory McAuley had put it back into the danger area.
9:31pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Lloyd Kerry sees an ambitious effort curl wide.
9:28pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Brian Smikle cuts in from the right and shoots across the face of goal.
9:25pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Robbie Matthews almost double Harriers' lead. He deftly controls a long bass forward but Simon Brown does well to get down to block his shot.
9:24pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Harriers are almost punished Danny Crow leaps above Luke Prosser and sends in a looping header that hits the bar.
9:22pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Darryl Knights has a goal ruled out. He controls a Brian Smikle cross and fires the ball into the roof of the net but it's ruled out for offisde.
9:20pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Darryl Knights is really going for it now. This time he gets the ball just outside the box, dribbles inside and flashes a decent effort wide.
9:17pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Yellow card Darryl Knights dashes down the right and is called offside harshly. He moans and gets a booking for his trouble.
9:12pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Oof! Duane Courtney tries his luck from the left wing and his effort flies across goal.
9:11pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Substitution U's change. Callum Willock comes on for Lee Phillips.
9:09pm Mon 29 Mar 10: More magic from Darryl Knights. He drives in from the right side of box and shoots but it's easily covered by Simon Brown.
9:07pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Danger for Harriers. Rory McAuley delivers a low cross from the left that skids through a crowded box. One touch and that would have been a goal.
9:06pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Darryl shoots over from just inside the box. Good play by Robbie Matthews to find him on the left wing.
9:05pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Substitution Martin Riley comes off with an injury and is replaced by Lloyd Kerry. Chris McPhee moves back into central defence.
9:03pm Mon 29 Mar 10: The away side come close. Kevin Roberts delivers a cross and a diving Danny Crow just misses the ball.
9:01pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Scott Neilson heads the ball into Ross Atkins' arms after some enterprising play by Simon Russell.
8:59pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Cambridge have really come to life, thanks to Simon Russell. He slips the ball to Paul Carden on the edge of the box but as he shoots, Chris McPhee tracks back and wins the ball.
8:57pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Ross Atkins does well to come out and pluck the ball out of the air. Lee Phillips was really trying to bully Luke Prosser there.
8:50pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Substitution Double change for the U's. Former Harrier Simon Russell and Rory McAuley replace Antonio Murray and Jai Reason.
8:32pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Half time That's the first half over. Very satisfying for Harriers, their only regret might be not scoring more goals while on top.
8:25pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Dean Bennett almost scores. It's another quick break by Harriers. Darryl Knights roves down the right and finds Bennett, who round the keeper, who had rushed out, and fires goalwards, only for Kevin Roberts to side in clear it away.
8:25pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Yellow card Jai Reason booked for a foul on Duane Courtney.
8:24pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Brian Saah almost concedes an own goal when he headed Tom Sharpe's left wing cross behind. Darryl Knight's corner is headed wide by Martin Riley.
8:17pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Robbie Matthews rams a low shot straight at Simon Brown. The chance came through neat interplay between Darryl Knights and Brian Smikle on edge of the area.
8:15pm Mon 29 Mar 10: More pressure from Harriers here, Cambridge haven't threatened at all yet.
8:09pm Mon 29 Mar 10: How did Harriers not score cos they should have done. Dean Bennett bursts from midfield and slips Darryl Knights down the right. He delivers a lovely low ball that a sliding Bennett can't quite reach. Brian Smikle stabs it goalwards at the far post and Simon Brown blocks it. The ball ricochets off Smikle and loops over the prone keeper but he shoots an arm up an bats it away.
8:05pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Yellow card Duane Courtney is booked for a foul on Antonio Murrary.
8:03pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Goal! Brian Smikle is as a cucumber as he races onto the ball and slips the ball past the keeper.
7:58pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Jack Byrne is doing his best to dictate the game in central midfield. He evades one U's player and then dinks the ball over but no one reads it. He berates Darryl Knights for that.
7:55pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Dean Bennett sidles into the box but as he goes to shoot he slips over. Still, Harriers look up for this match.
7:49pm Mon 29 Mar 10: The atmosphere is pretty good. The Cambridge fans are in good voice and the home fans respond.
7:48pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Darryl Knights gets the first shot on target. Harriers clear a corner. Knights swaps passes with Dean Bennett and power goalwards but keeper Simon Brown beats away his fierce rising effort.
7:47pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Cambridge, who are unbeaten in 10 matches, make one change from the side that beat Grays 3-0. Simon Brown is in goal, with Brian Saah sand Josh Couldon centreback, with David Partridge and Kevin Roberts (replacing the injured Dan Gleason) either side. Antonio Murray and Scottt Neilson are the wingers, with Jai Reason and Paul Carden in the central positions. Nineteen goal hitman Danny Crow and Lee Phillips are the U's strike force.
7:46pm Mon 29 Mar 10: Steve Burr made two changes from the side that lost to Salisbury on Saturday. Marc Goodfellow and Lloyd Kerry are dropped to the bench and strikers Darryl Knights and Robbie Matthews return to the starting line-up.
