4:41pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Danny Lewis denies James McCarthy. The Altrincham striker raced free but Lewis raced out and won the ball.

4:38pm Sat 4 Sep 10: An Absolutely breathless period of football here. Three goals in 10 minutes, the second half is miles better than the first. Can Harriers hold on?

4:22pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Lee Morris hit the post after good work by Lee Vaughan, eho had sped into the right side of the box and did well to pull it back.

4:20pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers have too good chances. First, Lee Morris drives into left side of box and his driven low shot is blocked by James Coates. Moments later, Lee Vaughan's deep right wing cross finds Keith Briggs, but his snapshot is blocked by the keeper.

4:19pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Another let off for Harriers. This time, Mike Williams tries to intercept Shaun Densmore's free-kick but only manages to get in Lewis' way. His poor clearance falls to Chris Denham, who fires over an open goal.

4:18pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers are still not really clicking. There's none of the fluency that has been seen in patches against Southport, Tamworth , York and Wrexham.

4:15pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Danny Lewis comes to lax Harriers' rescue again! This time Rob Williams is allowed unchallenged to meet Shaun Densmore's free-kick with well-placed downward header. The keeper dives to his left and tips it behind for a corner.

4:12pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Danny Lewis does really well to block Sam Hewson's effort. The keeper would only have seen that late. The Alty sub fired in a low effort through a crowded box.

4:09pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Matty Blair comes on for Nick Wright, who has had a poor game.

4:07pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Altrincham boss Graham Heathcote has had enough. He takes off Matty Crowell for Sam Hewson, while Marc Joseph replaces Michael Welch.

4:05pm Sat 4 Sep 10: At the other end of the pitch, Tom Shaw's free-kick finds its way through the wall but James Coates has it covered.

4:02pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Altrincham force a corner, which Michael Briscoe heads behind, beating Rob Williams in the air.

Altrincham's third corner is headed behind and their fourth success set ends with a speculative long shot wide.

4:01pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Danny Lewis gets down and parries Chris Denham's skidding 20-yard effort behind for a corner. The set piece is dealt with by the away side.

3:46pm Sat 4 Sep 10: That's the first half. Harriers' have had more play but they lack some confidence up front. But at 0-0 both sides will fancy their chances after the break.

3:43pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Chris McPhee is denied by keeper James Coates. He races onto Lee Morris' through ball and tries to lift the ball over the keeper, who just gets his body in the way.

3:43pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Jack Byrne goes closest for Harriers. His low right-footed shot flies just wide.

3:41pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Nick Wright gets a chance to stretch his legs on the left wing and runs into Shaun Densmore too easily.

3:36pm Sat 4 Sep 10: A good move goes to waste. Lee Morris drives forward to edge of box and slips a neat pass to Nick Wright, who had smartly moved into the box. But the striker is caught in two minds and Rob Williams wins the ball.

3:33pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Tom Shaw gives the ball too easily to Anthony Danylyk but the Altrincham's long ball forward is collected by Danny Lewis.

3:30pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Keith Briggs drives forward and unleashes a 20-yard left-foot shot that rolls wide.

3:28pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Anthony Danylyk rises well to meet a right wing cross but he powers his header wide.

3:25pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers need to be more alert up front. The quickthinking Lee Morris slips the ball to Chris McPhee on edge of box but instead of playing it back to his strike partner, he's slow to react and Rob Williams wins the ball.

3:24pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers' travelling fans are in full song now in an effort to gee up their side.

3:24pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers' travelling fans are in full song now in an effort to gee up their side.

3:22pm Sat 4 Sep 10: It's gone scrappy here, with both sides trying but giving the ball away. Nick Wright tries to race onto Michael Briscoe's header forward but Rob Williams wins the ball with a well judged tackle.

3:19pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers survived another scare. Michael Briscoe loses out to Chris Denham and the ball falls to James McCarthy, who has time to race into the box but with just Lewis to beat, he drives a low shot straight at the keeper, who deals with it well.

3:15pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers came very close. Tom Shaw's crossfield pass picked out Nick Wright on the right wing. He skins Michael Welch and sends in a cross that Chris McPhee, at the far post, can't quite reach.

3:14pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers are doing well in terms of possession but have yet to click in the final third. Altrincham are more direct and will cause them a few headaches on the break.

3:11pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers have pegged Altrincham back in their own half. A corner is well enough defended by the home team but Harriers are in control.

3:05pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Harriers hit back with some time on the ball. They're awarded a free-kick when Robbie Lawton fouls Lee Morris. Keith Briggs swings it in, the ball takes a deflection off the wall to Lee Morris on right side of the box. He drives in a low cross that a Alty defender clears.

3:02pm Sat 4 Sep 10: That was close! A free-kick is stabbed in Chris Denham. The ball falls to James McCarthy, who fires in a rising effort goalwards. But a combination of Michael Briscoe and keeper Danny Lewis put it over the bar.

3:01pm Sat 4 Sep 10: New signing Thorne's a big lad, here's hoping he can help solve Harriers' defensive woes. They've conceded 15 in six games. To be fair they've scored 12 in that time as well.

3:00pm Sat 4 Sep 10: A win today could propel Harriers quite far up the BSBP table, a defeat leaves them just one behind Altrincham.

3:00pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Altrincham boss Graham Heathcote has made five changes to the side that lost to Mansfield 4-0. The Manchester United-based side have yet to win a match this season. They have James Coates in goal. The back four of Michael Welch (RB), James Smith (CB), Rob Williams (CB) and Shaun Densmore (RB). In midfield, they have Ryan Brown (LM), Robbie Lawton (CM); Matty Crowell (CM) and Anthony Danylyk (RM). Up front, the shot-shot shy home side have Chris Denham and James McCarthy leading the line.

3:00pm Sat 4 Sep 10: Steve Burr makes two changes to the side that drew at home to Tamworth. With Mark Albrighton suspended and Tom Sharpe on the bench, Ollie Thorn debuts in central defence alongside Michael Briscoe.
