7:51pm Tue 11 Jan 11: After a scrappy start, Harriers burst have burst into life. Tom Shaw finds Matty Blair down the left and he races into the box and passes to Nick Wright. Brett Solkhon slides into challenge.
7:59pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Matty Blair's looking lively. He shoots into the side netting. Moments later he races down the left but knocks the ball away.
8:00pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Goal! Lee Morris scores! Jack Byrne gets free on left wing. His pass is deflected into Morris' path and he sweeps home from close range.
8:06pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Former Harriers Iyseden Christie is playing against his old side. He looks like he's had a few pies of late and is fouled by Tom Shaw. JP Marna's free-kick is blocked by the wall.
8:07pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Apart from the goal, it's a bit scrappy. Harriers look capable of scoring a second though while Kettering looks ragged.
8:10pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Iyseden Christie goes in with Tom Sharpe for the ball in front of the home end and is hit with a barrage of rude chants from the Harriers fans.
8:11pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Sorry about the delay folks, we've had technical difficulties which now have seemed to evaporated...for now. Harriers are the better team but a second goal would go amiss.

Nick Wright plays on the left wing, while Jamille Matt and Lee Morris are restored up front. With Mark Albrighton suspended and Lee Vaughan hit with the flu, Burr only has four subs to call on.

8:20pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Somehow Matty Blair races past three ineffective tackles and with goal in his sights, drags his shot wide. He should have scored there.
8:22pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Danger for Harriers. Nick Wright gives the ball away as Harriers swarm around Kettering's defence. The ball is played to JP Marna, who races down the left, cuts in and fires a low shot into Danny Lewis' arms.

8:55pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Goal! Nick Wright races onto Keith Briggs' pass down the left. He cut in from the left, ghosting past Luke Graham, and drove the ball inviting across the box. Matty Blair fired a scruffy shot into the back of the net.
8:58pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Yellow card JP Marna is booked for elbowing Chris McPhee. Harriers' talisman has some treatment for a cut on the side of his head.
9:03pm Tue 11 Jan 11: That was close! JP Marna delivers a low ball from across the box that flashes infront of goal. That just needed a touch to nestle in the back of the net.
9:04pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Goal! Oh dear. Harriers hopes of a clear sheet are dashed. From Marcus Kelly's free-kick, Ian Roper nods the ball to Brett Solkhon, who half-volleyed past Danny Lewis.

9:11pm Tue 11 Jan 11: Goal! Keith Briggs restores Harriers' two-goal lead. Lee Morris delivers a fine left wing cross and the captain nods down with real venom at the far post.
