4:49pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Final whistle It's over! Harriers improved in the second half but could not turn it around. Despite being great in the league, Harriers have now exited all of the competitions they were involved in at the first hurdle.
4:45pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Mitch McPike comes off after a clash of heads with David Brown.
4:44pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers have four minutes of time added on to pull something special out of the bag.
4:43pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Danny Lewis adds another good save to his collection from this match. This time he palms a strong rising effort from Mathias Pogba to keep the score down.
4:41pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers see a good chance to score go to waste. This time, Craig Lindfield makes a fine run down the left and finds Chris McPhee. The hitman fires goalwards but Chris Maxwell saves.
4:40pm Sat 11 Dec 10: A super save from Danny Lewis. Marc Williams spins sharply and turns the ball goalwards from eight yards out but Harriers' shot-stopper shows excellent reflexes to shoot out a hand and save.
4:31pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Tom Sharpe concedes a free-kick 20 yards out. David Brown's low effort skids wide.
4:30pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Marc Williams gets free in the box for a moment but a fine challenge from Michael Briscoe denies him.
4:28pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers have another escape. This time Johnny Hunt sends in a left wing cross that Adrian Cieslewicz can't quite control and Mitch McPike clears.
4:27pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Substitution Harriers change 72 mins: Craig Lindfield comes on for Lee Morris.
4:25pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Substitution Wrexham change 70: Johnny Hunt replaces Neil Ashton.

4:22pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Lee Vaughan steals into the box to meet Keith Briggs' pass but Chris Maxwell takes the ball.

4:07pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Lee Vaughan makes a timely challenge to deny Adrian Cieslewicz as he strode into Harriers' box after another barnstorming run.
4:06pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Yellow card Curtis Obeng is booked for a foul on Aaron Griffiths. Callum Gittings' ball is held by the keeper.
4:05pm Sat 11 Dec 10: That was a scare. Adrian Cieslewicz delivered a cross that Danny Lewis missed but Lee Vaughan was on hand to clear.
4:02pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers are presented a golden chance to score. Keeper Chris Maxwell's pass falls to Mitch McPike's. The midfielder rolls a tame shot forwards that Mark Creighton clears before it rolls into an empty net.
4:00pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers need to find a way to keep Adrian Cieslewicz quiet and get their midfield into the game. Chris McPhee and Lee Morris have not really had enough of the ball to influence up front either.
3:46pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Callum Gittings is having a bad day. Not only have all his set pieces missed the mark, Aaron Griffiths' free-kick falls to him and despite having time to set himself, he curls a first-time effort wide.
3:44pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Substitution Harriers change 44 mins: Jack Byrne, who accidentally fouled by Marvin Andrews, is replaced by Mitchell McPike.
3:40pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Danny Lewis pulls off a top drawer save to keep Harriers in the game. Adrian Cieslewicz drives forward too easily and from edge of the box fires a fine effort destined for the top corner, only for Lewis to dive to his left and palm it away.
3:34pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Goal! David Brown is given far too much space and he drills a low shot past Danny Lewis.
3:29pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Goal! Oh dear! Harriers are caught out from their own corner. Callum Gittings' corner was to Keith Briggs on the edge of the box. The captain is dispossesed by Mathias Pogba and Wrexham surge forward. Adrian Cieslewicz's pass is missed by Griffiths, who slipped at the crucial moment, and Jay Harris fired the ball past Danny Lewis.
3:27pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Yellow card Wrexham defender Marvin Andrews is booked.
3:24pm Sat 11 Dec 10: This is developing into a fast-paced game. Michael Briscoe's pass back to Danny Lewis is short and under pressure from Mathias Pogba the keeper's clearance falls to Jay Harris 30-yards out. With the goal at his mercy he fires a long range effort wide.
3:23pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers almost score. Jack Byrne lofts the ball over the defence and then races onto his own ball and his shot is smothered by keeper Chris Maxwell, who holds onto it as Chris McPhee comes flying in.
3:22pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers have a break from a Wrexham corner. Callum Gittings powered into the home side's half and finds Dave Hankin on the right. The winger takes one touch too many and allows Neil Ashton to block him.
3:20pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers almost take the lead. Chris McPhee does well to fire in a low skidding shot and Callum Gittings slides in at far post but the ball goes wide.
3:19pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harries have yet to get going. Hankin makes a run down the right but Lee Vaughan's pass to him was too long.
3:14pm Sat 11 Dec 10: For the second time, Callum Gittings takes a short corner to Lee Vaughan and again his pass is a poor one.
3:13pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Lee Morris almost gets free in the box but at the last moment he's outmuscled by Mark Creighton. The Harriers hitman isn't having much support at the moment.
3:13pm Sat 11 Dec 10: A nervy moment for Harriers. Curtis Obeng races onto Adrian Cieslewicz's defence splitting pass. Aaron Griffiths makes a crucial block.
3:11pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Adrian Cieslewicz is really tormenting Aaron Griffiths. This time he skips past him and sends in a low ball that Mathias Pogba can't control at the far post and keeper Danny Lewis takes it.
3:07pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Harriers under some pressure here and after Callum Gittings' clearance doesn't go very far, Adrian Cieslewicz rides several challenges and cuts in from the right. He finds Chris Blackburn and his shot hits Tom Sharpe.
3:05pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Yellow card Aaron Griffiths is punished for a late challenge on Adrian Cieslewicz. The forward races down the wing near the centre circle and is caught by the late arriving defender. He'll have to be careful now.
3:04pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Aaron Griffiths is fouled by Mathias Pogba. Harriers' free-kick is headed away Pogba.
3:03pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Dave Hankin dribbles into Wrexham's box and forces a corner. Callum Gittings plays the ball short to Lee Vaughan but his poor ball is easily cut out.
3:01pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Adrian Cieslewicz breaks free down the right but his pass goes behind for a Harriers free-kick.
3:01pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Almost from the kick-off, Jay Harris' wild long range volley is very high indeed.
3:00pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Dragons boss Dean Saunders has made six changes to the side that drew with Mansfield Town. There will be two former Harriers lining up against Steve Burr's side. Striker Marc Williams, who played for three months on loan at Aggborough recently, is part of a three-pronged strike force, while former skipper Mark Creighton starts in central defence. The untried Mathias Pogba and Adrian Cieslewicz also start up front in a hit squad who are all starting their first game's of the season. Neil Ashton returns after an injury absence at left-back, while Jay Harris and David Brown are called into a midfield three as Saunders opts for a 4-3-3 formation. Wrexham line up (4-4-3): Maxwell (GK); Obeng (RB); Andrews (CB); Creighton (CB); Ashton (LB); Harris (MF); Blackburn (MF); Brown (MF); Williams (F); Pogba (F); Cieslewicz (F).
3:00pm Sat 11 Dec 10: Good afternoon Harriers fans, welcome to Shuttle Online's coverage of the FA Trophy clash at Wrexham. Steve Burr makes just one change to the side that drew with York, with Callum Gittings coming in for Matty Blair on the left wing.
