- Final score:
- York City 1 - 2 Kidderminster Harriers
4:55pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Final whistle It's over! Harriers deserved that win, they were the sharper side. What a super start to the season.
4:52pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Yellow card Looks bad, Chris McPhee is caught clumsily by Michael Rankine, who is booked.
4:49pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Five minutes of time added on. Richard Brodie's free-kick takes a deflection but Danny Lewis does well to take it.
4:47pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Goal! Harriers are handed a penalty by ex-player Duane Courtney. He clatters into Chris McPhee and it's an easy decision for the ref. Tom Shaw slams in the penalty and even though Michael Ingham gets a touch,it flies into the back of the net.
4:44pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Substitution Aaron Griffiths replaces David Hankin.
4:42pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Goal! Harriers are dragged level by Michael Rankine's firm penalty kick. The striker went down in the box under pressure, think he was pushed by Matty Blair.
4:40pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Ten minutes to go, can Harriers bag all three points?
4:36pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Excellent save by Danny Lewis. Alex Lawless had let fly with rising right-foot effort that Harriers' keeper flung himself at to beat away.
4:36pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Substitution York change, former Harrier Duane Courtney comes on for Djoumin Sangare.
4:35pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Substitution Matty Blair replaces Callum Gittings, who is applauded off by the happy away fans.
4:33pm Sat 14 Aug 10: An escape for tiring Harriers. Jonathan Smith heads a corner across the face of goal but none of his team mates respond and Harriers clear.
4:30pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Panic for Harriers as Danny Lewis is impeded and the ball comes free but York's James Meredith can't force it home.
4:27pm Sat 14 Aug 10: How did Richard Brodie miss that? Daniel Parslow for once caught out Harriers' defence with a pin-point accurate cross but Brodie headed over inside the six-yard box.
4:25pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Substitution Striker Michael Rankine comes on for Chris Carruthers.
4:23pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Close! Nick Wright fends off Djoumin Sangare to hold up the ball. David Hankin delivers a low cross that a stretching Chris McPhee can't quite reach.
4:18pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Good play by Harriers. This time Nick Wright's crossfield pass picks out David Hankin, who dribbles to edge of box and curls an effort wide.
4:16pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Now Harriers have a reason not to like the referee, Jack Collin. David Hankin's free-kick seems to come off a home team man but the ref blows for a goal-kick.
4:15pm Sat 14 Aug 10: York fans go mad at the referee and Jack Byrne. The hosts had won a corner and but the official stopped play because Byrne, in York's box, needed treatment.
4:13pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Callum Gittings also should have done better. Jack Byrne freed him on the left of the box but his weak effort was well-taken by the keeper.
4:11pm Sat 14 Aug 10: What a miss! Harriers are sliced open but from close range Richard Brodie shoots over the bar.
4:07pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Richard Brodie cuts in from the right wing but his shot is smothered by Danny Lewis.
4:05pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Changes for Harriers. Lee Morris replaced by Nick Wright.
3:48pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Half time Brodie created a chance on the stroke of half-time, turning neatly just outside Harriers' area and unleashed a firm shot straight at Lewis. Moments later it's half-time. Harriers are good value for their goal, despite it's flucky nature.
3:47pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Harriers have a free-kick on the right. Lee Morris sends it in and after the ball comes off Chris McPhee, Michael Ingham takes.
3:43pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Ironic cheers by the home fans, who have not liked the referee. Djoumin Sangare is injured by Keith Briggs in the centre circle and starts a move that the midfielder ends with a show that goes wide. The referee belatedly blows his play so Sangare can be treated, sparking the fans' jeers.
3:39pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Substitution The injured Levi Mackin limps off and is replaced by former Walsall wideman Peter Till, making his league debut for the Minstermen.
3:35pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Chris McPhee gets a sight of goal but effort's straight at Michael Ingham.
3:34pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Richard Brodie bears down on Mark Albrighton, who is shepherding the ball back to his keeper. The defender can't evade him but the referee blows for a free-kick, when the striker pushes him.
3:33pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Yellow card Jonathon Smith is booked for a heavy challenge on Mike Williams.
3:31pm Sat 14 Aug 10: York on the attack, Jonathan Smith's cross is a decent one for Richard Brodie but he misses it and Mark Albrighton heads away.
3:29pm Sat 14 Aug 10: It's all going wrong for York. They break when a Harriers throw-in is intercepted but the move breaks down when Michael Gash's pass to release Alex Lawless goes out of play.
3:23pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Excellent work from Michael Briscoe, who forces Richard Brodie wide and he shoots off target. The referee calls for a corner, despite the remonstrations of Danny Lewis. Harriers deal with it comfortably though.
3:20pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Danny Lewis easily clutches Chris Carruthers' left-wing cross. It was a flowing Yor move before that, with Richard Brodie and Jonathan Smith combining well on the edge of Harriers' area.
3:16pm Sat 14 Aug 10: This game is far from over. Alex Lawless powers down the right and sends a fine right-footed effort across the face of goal.
3:14pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Keith Briggs almost creates an opening. He bursts into the box and squares the ball to Lee Morris but a desperate lunge by Djoumin Sangare cuts the ball out. More fine play by Harriers.
3:13pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Let off for Harriers. Michael Gash is free on the box but he's closed down by Harriers' well-drilled defence and his effort was blocked by Michael Briscoe.
3:11pm Sat 14 Aug 10: York's keeper makes up for his error when he denies Lee Morris. The striker had broken free for a one-on-one but Michael Ingham blocked with his legs.
3:08pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Goal! The away side look sharp on the break. Lee Morris slips Chris McPhee down the left but his cross is blocked by Djoumin Sangare. The ball goes behind for a corner and Callum Gittings' deep delivery beats the York keeper and arcs into the far post.
3:06pm Sat 14 Aug 10: Harriers are also looking lively and Chris McPhee does well to manouevre down the right and send in a cross that keeper Michael Ingham takes.
3:02pm Sat 14 Aug 10: York look really up for this and it takes two attempts before Michael Briscoe manages to clear the ball out of the area. Harriers go on the break and Jack Byrne wins a corner. Callum Gittings' ball isn't cleared properly and Keith Briggs header back, allowing Mark Albrighton to see an effort come off a York man.
3:01pm Sat 14 Aug 10: It's an early test for Mike Williams, who holds off Richard Brodie as he tries to power past him on the right wing. The ball goes out for a goal-kick.
3:00pm Sat 14 Aug 10: While Harriers' team is almost totally revamped, their opponents' starting line-up has 10 pkayers from last season. Michael Ingham is in goal, with James Meredith left back and Daniel Parslow right back. Djoumin Sangare and David McGurk are the centrebacks. In midfield, it's Levi Mackin, Alex Lawless, new signing Jonathan Smith and Chris Carruthers. Up front, they have the prolific Richard Brodie and Michael Gash.
3:00pm Sat 14 Aug 10: HARRIERS have eight players making their league today. Danny Lewis isn't one of those, although this is his first league game for them since since 2004 and he's back for his second spell. Otherwise, it's a totally new back four of Mike Williams on the left, Tom Shaw the right (because Lee Vaughan is suspended), with Mark Albrighton and Michael Briscoe centre backs. Jack Byrne is the only survivor in midfield from last season, while John Finnigan is injured. Byrne partners captain Keith Briggs in central midfield, with the wingers Callum Gittings (left) and Dave Hankin (right). Up front, Chris McPhee (another 09-10 survivor) plays alongside Lee Morris.
