4:58pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Final whistle It's over! Harriers are unbeaten in five and are now third in the table.
4:55pm Mon 29 Aug 11: It's been all Harriers and Kyle Storer's 30-yard effort was tipped over by Thompson. Good save!
4:48pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Substitution Newport change: Greening in for Velez 88.
4:42pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Harriers change 81: Sharpe for Vaughan. Newport 1, Harriers 3
4:41pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Goal! Luke Jones' lovely far post header makes it 3-1. Lovely corner from Dave Hankin's corner.
4:36pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Substitution Newport change 75: Jardim for Buchanan.
4:35pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Lee Vaughan denies Craig McAllister, as his shot deflects off him and over the bar.
4:31pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Red card Yakubu's woe is compounded as he picks up a second yellow and is sent off! Newport down to nine players.
4:26pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Feel slightly sorry for the Yakubu. It was a pacey delivery by Gittings and it came off the defender's chest. Hopefully that will knock the stuffing out of Newport, who had been looking for a second.
4:25pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Goal! Ismail Yakubu concedes an OG from Gittings' corner.
4:22pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Substitution Double change 61: Medley and Gittings on for Marc Williams and Phelan respectively.
4:18pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Newport with their tails up. Lewis does well to hold onto McAllister's drive from edge of the area.
4:14pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Steve Guinan pokes the ball wide of a open goal after Glynn Thompson spills the ball under pressure.
4:12pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Correction! Sam Foley scored after good work by McAllister!
4:11pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Goal! Newport reply immediately! Craig McAllister slips the ball past Lewis on left. Harriers fell asleep there!
4:09pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Goal! Jack Byrne close range header from super Vaughan cross!
4:06pm Mon 29 Aug 11: We're off again! The word from the dressing room is Harriers intend to keep possession and move 10-man Newport around.
4:00pm Mon 29 Aug 11: That's the break! Harriers will be aiming to take advantage of their extra man in the second half. The sending off may have been slightly questionable but the hosts have been far too hot-headed and it has cost them dearly. If Harriers can show some composure after the break, there's a big chance to pick up all three points.
3:46pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Half time Kyle Storer nearly bags a goal in the final minute of the half. Phelan was fouled 25-yards out and Storer's shot arc's over the ball but Glynn Thompson makes a diving save!
3:43pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Very Little has happened since sending off. Scott Phelan's free-kick from the incident went wide and Newport are happy to reorganise and stay solid, with midfielder Tom Miller slotting into back four.
3:36pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Red card Gary Warren is sent off! He was the last man and brought down Guinan as he sprinted to goal.
3:35pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Elliott Buchanan gets wide on the left and flashes a dangerous ball across the box.
3:33pm Mon 29 Aug 11: After a frenetic 20 min period, the game has settled down and Harriers are seeing more of the ball.
3:27pm Mon 29 Aug 11: From the free-kick, Scott Phelan put in the FK. Luke Jones heads goalwards but the ball comes off a combination of Guinan and Marc Williams.
3:26pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Yellow card Hankin pounces on Yakubu's lethargy and is clumsily brought down by the defender.
3:24pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Yellow card Lee Vaughan catches Danny Rose from behind in Newport's LB spot. The Newport man goes down very easily and the Harrier is booked.
3:18pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Harriers are hit on the break and Danny Rose impressively found some space, pulled the ball onto his right foot and curled a lovely effort just wide.
3:16pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Newport win another corner. This time, from Danny Rose's delivery, Storer heads out. It's all Newport at the moment.
3:14pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Danny Rose lets fly with a right-footed 30-yard fk but Lewis flings himself to his right and saves.
3:13pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Harriers are conceding a lot of free-kicks and are nearly punished. Danny Rose whips in a good fk and Warren thinks he's headed in but Lewis does really well to smother the ball on the line.
3:09pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Dave Hankin drives down the right wing, gets the better of Andrew Hughes and whips in a fine cross but Guinan heads wide.
3:04pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Newport having a bit of early pressure with two corners but Harriers deal with both well.
3:03pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Lee Vaughan slips in Steve Guinan. He fires in a right-footed shot which Thompson saved at his post.
3:02pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Gary Warren fires in two shots and both are blocked by Luke Jones.
3:00pm Mon 29 Aug 11: We're off!
3:00pm Mon 29 Aug 11: With a natural winger like Hankin in the side, Harriers are probably 4-4-2, hopefully he can provide the ammunition for Burr's troops on the right wing.
3:00pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Newport are being hit hard by suspensions but they do have some talented players in their linep-up. Craig McAllister was a fine player for Crawley last year and scored a scorcher in Harriers' 1-0 loss to the Red Devils last season.
3:00pm Mon 29 Aug 11: Newport are missing a host of players through suspension and manager Anthony Hudson makes three changes. Glynn Thompson replaces Potter in goal, former Harrier Sam Foley starts up front instead of Felino Jardim and Guillame Velez is in for the suspended Doherty. Newport (4-3-3): Thompson (GK); Miller (CM); Warren (CB); Yakubu (CB); Rose (RM); McAllister (F); Foley (RF); Hughes (LB); Rodgers (RB); Buchanan (LF); Velez (LM).
3:00pm Mon 29 Aug 11: We've had a team sheet given to us and them cruelly whisked away! Here's what I think will be Harriers' line-up. Harriers: Lewis; Vaughan; Jones; Marshall; Mike Williams; Byrne; Storer; Phelan; Hankin; Marc Williams; Guinan. There's been four changes. Jack Byrne gets the nod ahead of James Vincent, Steve Guinan replaces Jamille Matt. Dave Hankin comes in for Luke Medley for his first start of the season. Nick Wright and James Vincent are ommitted from the squad completely.
