9:35pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Final whistle It's over! That is a really good point for Harriers. Fleetwood had all the chances but in the end Jack Byrne made them pay for their wastefulness in front of goal. An battling display by Steve Burr's troops.
9:34pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Harriers survive a scare! Sean Clancy heads wide after a bout of head tennis.
9:32pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Danny Lewis pushes away Peter Cavanagh's cross. The referee blows for a free-kick after a foul on the keeper.
9:29pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Fair play to Steve Burr if Harriers get something from this game. His changes have had an impact. As a matter of fact, Tom Shaw replaces Callum Gittings.
9:28pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Marc Williams finds space on the right of the box and crosses. Chris McPhee's diving header was at the keeper.
9:27pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Substitution Fleetwood change. Mark Beesley replaces Ian Craney.
9:21pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Keith Briggs fires a firm low effort at Scott Davies. That goal has changed the complexion of the game. Fleetwood should have been out of sight but now the game's in the balance.

9:14pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Substitution Matt Blair replaces Lee Morris, who really has had no impact on the game.

9:11pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Ian Craney drives forward for the hosts but fires over from 20-yards out.
9:10pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Callum Gittings drives forward but he's well-tackled by Jamie Mullan.

9:05pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Substitution Marc Williams replaces the ineffective David Hankin.

8:59pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Harriers are offering very little going forward. David Hankin's right wing cross goes out of play. Something needs to change if they're to get something out of the game.
8:56pm Tue 21 Sep 10: That was close! Nathan Pond is picked out by a low cross on the right. The midfielder fires in a shot that flies over the bar.
8:55pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Anthony Barry goes for goal 30-yards out and it flies just wide of Danny Lewis' right-hand post.

8:51pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Keith Briggs drives forward and sees a shot blocked by Steve McNulty for a throw-in.
8:45pm Tue 21 Sep 10: The next goal is pivotal. If Harriers go level then it's game on but if Fleetwood do then it could be another bad night here for the Aggborough outfit.
8:32pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Goal! That's the first half. Harriers could be losing by more so go into the break with a lifeline of sorts. At the moment it's too easy for Fleetwood to get at them and they're offering little up front.
8:30pm Tue 21 Sep 10: That was close! Lee Morris comes to life and runs 20-yard before unleashing a left-footed effort across the face of goal. A stretching Callum Gittings can't quite reach it.
8:28pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Callum Gittings' pass goes to Lee Thorpe and he spots Danny Lewis off his line. The striker's lofted effort is saved by Danny Lewis.
8:27pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Lee Morris' crossfield pass finds David Hankin on the right but he tries to go past Pete Cavanagh and is easily dispossessed.
8:25pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Harriers have a half-chance when Steve McNulty concedes a free-kick. Callum Gittings' ball is a decent one but Scott Davies punches away. Moments later Jack Byrne powers into the right side of the box but a clean challenge by Pete Cavanagh wins the ball.
8:23pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Danny Lewis takes Shaun Beeley's searching ball as Lee Thorpe tries to control it. Still all Fleetwood. Harriers have offered nothing up front, with Lee Morris and Chris McPhee not gelling here.
8:14pm Tue 21 Sep 10: That goal has really knocked Harriers' confidence and after a competitive start they look vulnerable. Simon Grand gets a head to Ian Craney's free-kick but Danny Lewis takes.
8:09pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Hey folks, sorry about the delay, we're having the all-encompassing ' technical problems' here. Here's a recap of what you've missed: Harriers have been under pressure, with Nathan Pond firing one wide and another at Danny Lewis. Gareth Seddon headed wide as the away side were put under pressure. David Hankin did have a chance with a rare effective raid but his low 20-yard effort was straight at the keeper.
8:05pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Goal! Ian Craney's fine dipping effort gives Danny Lewis no chance. Perhaps Harriers could have cleared Shaun Beeley's throw-in better but it was a fine shot.
7:58pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Callum Gittings makes a great run but can't finish it off. He goes past three men on the left and fires a low shot wide.
7:55pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Harriers have a chance. From David Hankin's corner, Michael Briscoe directs a header wide.
7:52pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Dave Hankin is fouled by Nathan Pond and Harriers have a free-kick on the right. Keith Briggs whips it in but it just evades Ollie Thorne at the far post.
7:51pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Well done Danny Lewis! The keeper pushes over Ian Craney's shot, which took a big deflection off Michael Briscoe. From the resulting corner, Lee Thorpe heads wide.
7:49pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Five minutes in and Harriers have coped well. The home fans are noisy and it's an intimidating atmosphere. No chances for the away side but they're competing well.
7:46pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Ollie Thorne does well to track back and slide in from behind and win the ball off Magno Vieira as he strode onto a long ball forward.
7:45pm Tue 21 Sep 10: A win for Harriers could take them as high as seventh in the Blue Square Premier, depending on results. If Fleetwood win they might go joint top.
7:45pm Tue 21 Sep 10: On an interesting note here at Highbury Stadium, they have a television in the men's toilet with footage of the players warming up. Still, they are very nice toilets.
7:45pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Fleet manager Micky Mellon makes three changes to the squad that beat Grimsby on Saturday. Simon Grand, Peter Cavanagh and Jamie McGuire are back in for Alan Wright, Wayne Curtis and Paul Linwood. Fleetwood will have a 4-3-3 formation lead by the three-pronged strike force of Magno Vieira (right), Lee Thorpe (centre) and Gareth Seddon (left). Harriers fans will remember Seddon as his brace knocked them out of the FA Cup last season in the fourth qualifying round. Scott Davies is in goal, with the back four of Shaun Beeley (RB), Steve McNulty (CB), Simon Grand (CB) and Peter Cavanagh (LB) in front. The three man midfield has Nathan Pond in the middle, flanked by Ian Craney on the right and Anthony Barry the left.
7:45pm Tue 21 Sep 10: GOOD evening Harriers fans! Harriers boss Steve Burr has made just the one change from the side that drew with Cambridge. With Nick Wright unwell, David Hankin is back in after a one-match absence on the right wing.
7:45pm Tue 21 Sep 10: Shuttle Online will have live match updates from Harriers' testing Blue Square Bet Premier trip to Fleetwood on Tuesday night.
