8:32pm Tue 13 Mar 12: Ryan Young has to be alert to come out and pluck ball away from Anthony Malbon as he sped into box.

8:10pm Tue 13 Mar 12: Lee Vaughan looks desperate to attack his former team. Everytime he gets the ball he's driving down the right.
8:09pm Tue 13 Mar 12: Apart from Telford's goal, they don't look cohesive going forward. Chris Sharp breaks free but his pass to Phil Trainer is wayward.
8:06pm Tue 13 Mar 12: Kyle Perry kicks the air 20-yards out with a mis cued shot in a rare Telford attack.

7:45pm Tue 13 Mar 12: With Harriers' play-off hopes flagging, this is a must-win game. There are other matches which have a bearing on their top five hopes and if Mansfield slip-up to Fleetwood tonight, York and Grimsby cancel each other out aKettering surprise Southport, the promotion tilt could be back in full swing!
