Kidderminster Shuttle: whistle icon 4:48pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Final whistle It's over! Harriers tried in the second half but Boro were too good for them. They've set a high standard for Harriers to follow next season.

4:46pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Lawrie Wilson's first-time effort curls wide of Harriers' goal.

4:44pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Lloyd Kerry's free-kick is tipped behind for a corner by Chris Day. The corner is too long and causes no problems.

4:40pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Chris McPhee races into to meet a cross but flashes the ball across the face of goal.

4:35pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Chris McPhee does well to steal ahead of his marker and meet Brian Smikle's left-wing cross but Chris Day does well to dive down and get a hand to it.

4:33pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Brian Smikle crosses from the left and Lloyd Kerry does well to take control of the chester high ball and fire a looping effort goalswards but keeper Chris Day had the shot covered.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 4:26pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Substitution Double sub for Harriers. Off come Darryl Knights and Robbie Matthews for James Lawrie and Lloyd Kerry.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 4:23pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Substitution Boro have a habit of taking time outs whenever one of their players are injured. Added to the fact that David Bridge replaces Joel Byrom, and there's been a few minutes delay.

Kidderminster Shuttle: substitution 4:18pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Substitution Boro change: Lawrie Wilson replaces Yemi Odubade.

Kidderminster Shuttle: Goal icon 4:16pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Goal! Joel Byrom cuts in from the left into Harriers' box too easily and curls a shot into the far corner of the goal.

4:15pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Jasbir Singh is almost caught out. He stands on his line and Andy Drury's lob bounces in front of him and over the bar.

4:12pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Chris Beardsley races down the right and cuts into the box. But he's held up by Luke Prosser and his attempt to curl it in at the far post is more like a cross and comes off a Boro player's head. Harriers clear comfortably.

4:04pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Martin Riley does ever so well to direct the ball behind for a Boro corner. He was facing his own goal and was fending off Charlie Griffin as well as the cross came in. Harriers defend the set-piece well.

4:03pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Jack Byrne spurns a golden chance to level for Harriers. He makes a good late run into the box and controls Brian Smikle's pass but with just the keeper to beat he blazes over the bar.

Kidderminster Shuttle: whistle icon 3:47pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Half time Half-time. Harriers have been unable to even dent the Boro machine. A big improvement needed at half-time.

3:42pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Harriers' first meaningful shot comes when Darryl Knights low 20-yard effort flies into Chris Day's arms.

3:38pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Harriers can't clear Chris Beardsley's cross and Andy Drury's shot from the edge of the area and flies wide.

3:37pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Sorry to be so quiet but nothing has happened for the last 10 minutes. Harriers are defending nervously and Boro are pushing.

3:15pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Jasbir Singh pulls off a decent save to almost repair the damage of his error. He dives down well to palm away Chris Beardsley's downward header. The ball falls to Charlie Griffin but but thumps it against the post.

3:07pm Fri 16 Apr 10: That goal has given Boro some extra impetus they didn't need. Harriers must try to not concede a second, the longer the game goes on the more nervy Stevenage will become.

3:02pm Fri 16 Apr 10: What a strange goal. Harriers concede a just outside the area in the 12th second when Darryl Knights wins the ball, which rolls to keeper Jasbir Singh in goal. The referee blows for a back pass. The ball is rolled to Griffin, who rifles the ball into the back of the net.

Kidderminster Shuttle: Goal icon 3:01pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Goal! Charliw Griffin scores from a free-kick.

3:00pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Harriers don't need much motivation to beat Boro. They lost 5-1 to them at home in the FA Trophy semi-final, so denying them the title for one game at least would be very sweet.

3:00pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Boro have Chris Day in goal with a back four of Scott Laird (LB), Ronni Henry (LB), Jon Ashton (CB) and Mark Roberts (CB). In midfield, they have Joel Byrom and Michael Bostwick in the central positions, with Andy Drury and Yemi Odubade wide. Up front, Charlie Griffin and Chris Beardsley.

3:00pm Fri 16 Apr 10: Steve Burr has made four changes to the side that drew at Hayes and Yeading. Out goes Lloyd Kerry, Ross Atkins, Dean Bennett and Tom Sharpe, while Robbie Matthews, Jasbir Singh, Jack Byrne and Duane Courtney come back in. This is Burr's strongest line-up possible as Harriers try and stall Boro's title hopes.
