8:50pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Right, second half is off. Fingers crossed everyone...
8:33pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Half time That's the break. Harriers are moral victors in the first half as they created a host of chances, with five efforts cleared off the line. Tamworth came close through Kyle Patterson. With a win desperately needed to keep their play-off hopes alive, Steve Burr's side must keep believing and take their chances.
8:31pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Marvin Johnson gets free down left and sends in a cross. Anthony Malbon can't get to it but at the far post, Steve Guinan volleys over. Decent effort.
8:27pm Tue 20 Mar 12: JP Marna nearly catches Harriers out. The ball is sent into the box and the former Kettering man ghosts in but fails to connect properly and Tony Breeden saves.
8:24pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Marvin Johnson has been a useful creative outlet so far and his cross forces a corner. Harriers can't make it tell and ref blows for a Tamworth FK.
8:22pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Bad news for Harriers, play-off rivals Grimsby have taken the lead at Hayes and Yeading.
8:21pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Anthony Malbon's tenacity almost wins the ball as Francino Francis and Hedge get in each other's way. In the end, the home side win a GK.
8:17pm Tue 20 Mar 12: How did Harriers not score? Johnson cross from the left and Hankin's header falls to Malbon but his shot hits JP Marna. Another good chance.

8:14pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Kyle Patterson has the bit between the teeth and he unleashes a 20-yard effort which clips the bar and flies over. Tony Breeden looked like he had to covered if it was any lower.
8:13pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Kyle Patterson is causing Harriers some problems. The ball breaks to him but Lee Vaughan mops up.
8:12pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Dave Hankin rides a challenge and breaks forward but his pass to Steve Guinan is wayward and a good chance goes to waste.
8:11pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Another chance! This time Luke Jones's header from a FK comes off a defender and goes behind for a corner.
8:09pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Harriers are creating chances at will. Marvin Johnnson races down the left and delivers a teasing low ball but Steve Guinan fires over on the run.
8:08pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Lee Vaughan's low skidding 30-yard shot comes off Oji from a corner. Hedge punches the set-piece meekly away but from edge of the box, Johnson tries a chip which is too high.
8:05pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Paul Green releases Kyle Patterson down the left and he flashes a shot wide from a tight angle. Just a warning for dominant Harriers.

7:59pm Tue 20 Mar 12: I am not sure how Harriers did not score from the corner. Luke Jones and Anthony Malbon have efforts cleared off line. Amazing!
7:58pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Marvin Johnson, playing on the left, rifles in a stinging shot which keeper Hedge puts behind for a corner.
7:56pm Tue 20 Mar 12: A fair bit of pressure from Harriers at moment. Marvin Johnson's hanging ball is cleared and Tamworth try to break but a clean tackle by Tom Marshall ends the attack.
7:51pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Anthony Malbon nearly opens the scoring. Luke Jones powerful header from half way line catches out home defence and the alert Malbon races in and lofted a first time effort over the bar.
7:49pm Tue 20 Mar 12: Marvin Johnson wins a corner. Dave Hankin's delivery has pace but Anthony Malbon glances a header across the box and behind for a GK.
7:45pm Tue 20 Mar 12: CORRECTED: Harriers haven't won at The Lamb since 1979 but a win would keep the faint play-off hopes alive. There are four ex-Lambs in the Harriers squad tonight - Marshall, Wright, Storer and Bradley. For Tamworth former Harriers Francino Francis and Duane Courtney start.
