9:39pm Tue 18 Oct 11: It's over! Harriers hold on for a much-needed win. Braintree aren't too pleased with the re-taken penalty which handed them the win but I'm sure Steve Burr will welcome all three points.
9:37pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Yellow card Marc Williams booked for a foul.
9:32pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Looks like four minutes time added on. Harriers fans won't have any nails left at this rate.
9:31pm Tue 18 Oct 11: With three minutes left Harriers are still ahead but Braintree are searching for a goal.
9:29pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Substitution Braintree change 85: McCammon on for Reason.
9:27pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Substitution Harriers change 84: Williams (Marc)on for Gittings.
9:19pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Goal! Cool as you like. Nick Wright slots the spot-kick into bottom right corner after sending keeper wrong way.
9:18pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Kyle Storer's weak penalty is saved but the ref blows for it to be taken again because goalie moved.
9:15pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Harriers awarded a penalty! Keeper Nathan McDonald brings down Nick Wright.
9:09pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Goal! Tom Sharpe is adjudged to have fouled Aswad Thomas in box and referee blows for a penalty. Ben Wright slams home the penalty.

9:05pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Goal! Braintree reply again. Aswad Thomas's shot from edge of box squirms through a crowded box into back of the net.
9:04pm Tue 18 Oct 11: This game's not over. Braintree force a corner. This time Harriers defend well.
9:01pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Goal! Whatever Steve Burr said at half-time has worked a treat. Callum Gittings volleyed in from 15-yards from a Steve Guinan nod down.

8:48pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Substitution Steve Burr takes action by taking off Scott Phelan and replacing him with Luke Medley.
8:33pm Tue 18 Oct 11: That's the break. Harriers have been second best and if not for Dean Lyness would have been trailing by more goals. Braintree are big and slick on the break and the hosts are out of sorts.
8:26pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Sean Marks escapes the centre backs and rams shot goalwards, Dean Lyness does well to tip over the bar.
8:23pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Harriers come close to leveller. James Vincent breaks dynamically in midfield and spreads the ball out wide to Mickey Demetriou. His cross isn't cleared and Kyle Storer rifles in a shot which deflects off Matt Paine and flies wide. Despite that the referee wrongly signals for a GK.
8:18pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Goal! Harriers sliced open far too easily. The hosts lose the ball in midfield and Vose powers past Mickey Demetriou. He passes to Sean Marks, who instinctively squares ball to Ben Wright, who thumps home a left-footed shot.
8:12pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Substitution Harriers change 28: Jamille Matt comes off and is replaced by Steve Guinan.
8:11pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Goal! Harriers reply immediately. Micharl Briscoe's long ball catches out the Braintree defence and Nick Wright steals in and fires in a shot off the post.
8:10pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Goal! Harriers under pressure and they concede. Ben Wright arced a well-struck free-kick towards the bottom right corner. Lyness saves but spills the ball and Sean Marks rams home the through ball.
8:07pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Warning for Harriers. Vose crosses from the left and Sean Marks heads a good chance wide.
8:05pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Harriers come very close to opening the scoring. Kyle Storer sends in a good swerving free-kick and Callum Gittings rises well and powers a header downwards but keeper Nathan McDonald spreads himself wide.
8:03pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Harriers not really getting it together but Tom Sharpe sees a far post header blocked. Braintree look the brighter.
8:01pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Scott Phelan looks very bright. He does very well to leap into the air, chest the ball down and get wide on the right. Moments later he hammers a long range effort over the bar.
7:58pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Jamille Matt wins the ball and forces a corner. Braintree defender Scott Phelan's delivery well.
7:55pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Harriers under the cosh. Here, from a corner Kenny Davis' header is tipped over by Dean Lyness.
7:53pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Braintree threaten again. Dominic Vose breaks forward took easily in midfield and squares the ball to Ben Wright on the left. The striker's shot was well-saved by Dean Lyness.
7:45pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Hey foks, Braintree have started brightly. Ben Wright had a fine chance in the first minute, steeling in unmarked but hitting a first-time effort wide.
7:45pm Tue 18 Oct 11: Braintree boss Alan Devonshire makes two changes from the side which drew with Bath City. Dominic Vose and Sean Marks are back in the side.
