Harriers v Mansfield
- Kick off: 3:00pm Sat 21 Aug 10
- Venue: Aggborough
- Final score:
- Kidderminster Harriers 1 - 3 Mansfield Town
4:49pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Final whistle It's over! Harriers were out classed in the second half. Paul Connor's aerial ability and substitute Luke Medley's pace made their defence look very shaky. Lots of work to be done by the manager.
4:45pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Goal! Harriers are punished for more lax play. Keith Briggs' pass was intercepted and Luke Medley powered into the box, delivered a low cross that Rob Duffy slid into convert at the far post.
4:40pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Substitution The highly experienced Kevin Sandwith replaces Mansfield dangerman Adam Smith.
4:37pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Marc Williams looks the likeliest to score for Harriers. This time Keith Briggs plays Nick Wright down the right wing, the striker does well to beat his man and deliver a low ball, that Williams scuffs just wide.
4:35pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Final whistle Let off for the home side, who are struggling with Luke Medley's pace. The forward latches onto a long ball. Danny Lewis is rooted to his line and is lucky the striker shoots over.
4:33pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Marc Williams does well chest down Matty Blair's cross and fire in a shot that just flies over the bar.
4:30pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Substitution Both teams make more changes. For Harriers a rather annoyed looking Chris McPhee is replaced by Matty Blair. Mansfield see Paul Connor replaced by Rob Duffy, who has only just recovered from appendix surgery.
4:26pm Sat 21 Aug 10: David Hankin is fouled. Keith Briggs delivers the free-kick but Marc Williams heads wide.
4:23pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Luke Medley runs at Mark Albrighton, cuts in from the right and sees a low shot fly just wide.
4:22pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Jack Byrne, who is playing on the left, whips in another good cross that is just a fraction too high.
4:19pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Yellow card Mark Albrighton is booked for pulling down Luke Smedley.
4:18pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Harriers come close to levelling. Jack Byrne delivered a raking cross that late arriving duo Nick Wright and Chris McPhee just missed.
4:15pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Harriers survived a scare on the hour mark. Louis Briscoe crossed from the right and Luke Medley had time to control the ball and power a shot over the bar.
4:09pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Goal! Harriers find themselves trailing. The ball ricocheted off a home player and the predatory Paul Connor rounded Danny Lewis.
4:08pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Goal! Mansfield grab a deserved leveller. Harriers were opened up when Adam Smith sped down the right. His cross cwas headed back by Louis Briscoe and Luke Medly volleted it home from 10-yards.
4:03pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Michael Briscoe saves the day with a last-ditch tackle. Luke Medley had powered into the box, and squared it to Louis Briscoe but his Harriers namesake appeared from nowhere with a fine challenge.
4:00pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Substitution Both sides make a change. Marc Williams replaces Callum Gittings, while Mansfield take off Keigan Parker bring on Luke Medley.
3:46pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Half time That's the break. Mansfield have had their chances, so there's still a very even game to come in the second half.
3:45pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Danny Lewis produces a fine save. Adam Smith cuts in after teasing Tom Shaw and curls in a fine shot that the keeper does well to put behind. From the corner, Louis Briscoe powers a header goalwards but it was straight at Lewis.
3:40pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Jack Byrne wins the ball off Tyrone Thompson and drives to edge of the box, where he is fouled by the Mansfield man. Keith Briggs' free-kick deflects off the wall for a corner.
3:37pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Jack Byrne almost doubles the lead. He drove forward and with Callum Gittings' run down the left diverting the Mansfield defence, he let fly with a fine rising shot that keeper Alan Marriott did well to reach.
3:33pm Sat 21 Aug 10: More chaos in Harriers' defence. Danny Lewis parries Paul Connor's header, before Gary Mills' close range header hit the bar. Another shot flies in and Harriers clear off the line madness.
3:30pm Sat 21 Aug 10: A good chance to attack on the break goes to waste. Mike Williams wins the ball and slips it to Nick Wright. The big striker turns and runs from 35-yards out and spanks an effort over the bar. Poor choice, David Hankin was free on the right and screaming for the ball.
3:26pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Let off for Harriers. Louis Briscoe delivered a good cross and Paul Connor headed it goalwards at the far post. Keeoer Danny Lewis was in the right place to block but it hit him on the chester before he got hold of the ball.
3:23pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Mansfield are putting the pressure on now and win their first corner. But the referee awards Harriers a goal-kick when Chris McPhee is fouled by Adam Smith before the ball is being delivered.
3:20pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Chris McPhee tries to belt in a shot from 25-yards but Steve Foster seems to block it with his arm. None of the officials give and Mansfield launch the ball forward on the counter. Keeper Danny Lewis rushes out and heads the ball out of play.
3:18pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Still a pretty even match here. Harriers are still looking more cohesive. Nick Wright is fouled as he chases a long ball forward and is fouled by Stephen Foster. The first attempt to take free-kick was called back by the referee and David Hankin's attempt to float it over went behind for a goal kick.
3:13pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Mansfield try to hit back. Paul Connor holds the ball up on thge edge of the box and plays it out to Adam Smith, whose low shot was just off target.
3:12pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Callum Gittings whips in a cross and Paul Stonehouse puts behind for a corner. The winger's corner is headed behind by Adam Smith but the linesman incorrectly gave a goal-kick.
3:07pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Tom Shaw is mister cool, he's cucumber. And he slots the penalty into the bottom left corner after Chris McPhee was fouled Chris Smith. The referee missed it but the linesman raised his flag to mark it. Good officiating.
3:00pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Mansfield have Paul Connor, who was on trial at Harriers in the summer, and Keigan Parker up front. In midfield, Gary Mills and Tyrone Thompson are in the central positions, with Adam Smith the left and Louis Briscoe the right. In defence, the centrebacks are Chris Smith and Steve Foster, flanked by Gary Silk (right) and Paul Stonehouse (left).
3:00pm Sat 21 Aug 10: Bit of a scrappy start by both teams. Callum Gittings drives forward to the edge of the box but is fairly tackled by Steve Foster.
3:00pm Sat 21 Aug 10: That means it's Mark Albrighton and Michael Briscoe as centrebacks, Mike Williams the left and Tom Shaw the right. In midfield, Callum Gittings (left) and David Hankin (right) will be on the flanks, with Keith Briggs and Jack Byrne the central positions. Up front, it's Nick Wright and Chris McPhee.
