4:03pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Rundle has been a thorn in Harriers' side. He sends in a good ball which hits two players before Harriers clear.

Kidderminster Shuttle: whistle icon 3:46pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Half time That's the break. Harriers have been pretty solid defensively, although something has to be done to prevent Aaron Rundle sending in crosses from the right. The problem is in midfield, as Harriers are not holding onto the ball and as a consequence are being pushed back. Still, at 0-0, they can improve attacking-wise.

3:45pm Sat 15 Oct 11: One minute of time added on.

3:43pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Dean Lyness tips over an Exodus Geohaghan cross. The young keeper has been worked hard with the number of dangerous balls into the box. On the whole he's done okay, as have the centre backs.

3:41pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Harriers almost grab a breakaway goal. Jamille Matt brings the ball down well, powers forward. His pass to Guinan was a bit wide but he delivers a good right wing cross and James Vincent, on the edge of the box, fires just wide of left hand post.

3:37pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Dean Lyness dives down to his right and gets a hand to Aaron Rundles's left-footed 20-yard shot.

3:34pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Michael Briscoe does well to race back and just get the ball away from Liam Hatch as he raced into the box.

3:32pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Harriers under more pressure. Liam Hatch's shot in the box is cleared by Michael Briscoe. On the right wing, Aaron Rundle sends a ball back in but Harriers survive.

3:29pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Mickey Demetriou does well to track back James Walshaw and wijn the hall.

3:27pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Aaron Rundle is getting too much space on the right. He sends in another dangerous cross which is a fraction too long. Mickey Demetriou getting caught out a little.

3:25pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Harriers go direct. Dean Lyness hoofs ball forward. Matt does well to hold off Geohaghan and nod ball into Guinan's pass. The veteran's 20-yard chip is off target.

3:21pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Steve Guinan releaes Jamille Matt with a nice pass but the striker is stopped in his tracks by a Darlo defender.

3:19pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Harriers defend a corner. Chris Atkinson's ball is played long and sent back in on other wing. Greg Taylor's shot rebounds off a teammate to go behind for a Harriers GK.

3:18pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Harriers are awarded a FK in Darlo's half. Gittings' delivery is swerving and dangerous but keeper Soderburg takes on second attempt.

3:17pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Nothing really to report. Darlington in charge but not exactly incisive. Harriers holding firm.

3:11pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Scrappy start with Darlington edging it. Liam Hatch's speculative 20-yard hooked volley flies over the bar.

3:06pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Aaron Rundle sends in a good cross from the right. Dean Lyness is fouled by a Darlington attacker for a goal-kick,

3:04pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Harriers have to expect aerial bombardment. Darlington will try to be direct if possible.

3:00pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Darlington win a couple of throw-ins and Exodus Geohaghan uses his trade mark long throw. On both occasions Harriers get ball away but it's a real test for new-look back four.

3:00pm Sat 15 Oct 11: With Matt and Guinan up front in a traditional 4-4-2 (rather than 4-3-3), it's up to Wright and Gittings in wings to use Darlington's big pitch to Harriers' advantage.

3:00pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Bit of a love-in here as the Harriers press core, Steve Miller, Dan Briggs, Matt Wall and myself, wave at a group of travellling fans in a corner, which includes Matt's other half Charlotte. What a bunch of luvvies we are.

3:00pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Harriers only have 16 players fit so everyone they have is on the bench. With no back-up goalkeeper, let's hope nothing happens to Dean Lyness.

3:00pm Sat 15 Oct 11: Darlington boss Mark Cooper keeps the same side which won the seven-goal thriller at Stockport. That means former Bromsgrove Rovers, Redditch United, Kettering and Peterborough man Exodus Geoghaghan keeps his place in the side. The big centre back used to play for Harriers assistant boss at Redditch. Darlington (4-4-2): Soderburg (GK); Geohaghan (CB); Chandler CM); Sanchez-Munoz (CB); Taylor (RB); Atkinson (CM); Hatch (F); Walshaw (F); Taylor (LB); Brown (LM); Rundle (RM).
