4:54pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Final whistle It's over! Harriers win their first home league game since January. It was a workman-like performance but a heartening victory. It also leaves them three points off play-off spots.
4:49pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Substitution Harriers change 91: Wright on fir Hankin.
4:47pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Goal! Unadulterated joy for Harriers as Ryan Rowe finally scores his first goal for club. James Vincent drove into box and looked as though he took ball too wide. The ball comes back to Rowe, who checks onto right foot and sees a low shot take a deflection and fly into back of the net.
4:46pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Substitution Hariers change 88: Ryan Rowe replaces Steve Guinan, who has worked hard throughout.
4:45pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Marvin Johnson drives down the left to byline and pulls ball back but no one is there to ram ball home.
4:42pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Haydn Hollis goes down very easily after a clash by James Vincent.
4:37pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Anthony Malbon is replaced by James Vincent. The young hitman seems to have a minor knock and is replaced.
4:35pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Yellow card Jack Byrne tackles John McReady and was booked.
4:31pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Drewe Broughton wastes a glorious chance for Darlo. Adam Rundle drives down right and crosses, at the far post, the striker heads over the bar.
4:29pm Sat 24 Mar 12: It's all very bitty at the moment. Darlington's players seem happy to go to ground now they are losing and things aren't going their way. It's frustrating for home crowd.
4:26pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Substitution Darlington change: Rundle on for Taylor 66 mins.
4:22pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Marvin Johnson swivels 20-yards out and slides a fine low effort wide of right post.
4:20pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Difficult chance for Johnson, who fires over after Malbon found him in box.
4:18pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Marvin Johnson is caught by Aaron Brown with an aerial challenge. The young wideman is okay to continue.
4:11pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Goal! Anthony Malbon slides a surgically precuse shot beyond keeper Jordan Pickford from a tight angle after good work by Steve Guinan.
4:07pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Dave Hankin nearly scores his second Lee Vaughan cross from the right. Hankin's first time effort hits Neil Wainwright.
4:06pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Darlington have a bit of earlier pressure and from a Kris Taylor corner, new signing Haydn Hollis sees a diving header fall into side netting at near post.
3:47pm Sat 24 Mar 12: That's the break. The script is a familliar one at Aggborough as Harriers concede first. Dave Hankin provided the leveller and the home side have had a few decent chances to score. Saying that, it's still been a bit lacklustre.
3:43pm Sat 24 Mar 12: There's a wee break here as Clark Keltie is treated for an ankle injury. He jogs back onto pitch after being checked out by physio.
3:40pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Storer brings down Drewe Broughton just outside the penalty area as Harriers concede a FK. Kris Taylor sensibly tries a low shot which rolls wide of right post.
3:38pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Marvin Johnsn pops up on the left and meets a Malbon cross with a header but keeper saves.
3:37pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Harriers come very close to scoring! Marvin Johnson races down the left and rams in a fine shot which is saved by keeper. Kyle Storer has made a good suporting run but his close range shot was scrambled off the line by Paul Arnison.
3:27pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Conceding the goal has roused Harriers and now they are looking much more likely to score.
3:25pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Goal! Dave Hankin stabs from after Darlington fail to clear. Tom Marshall's shot hit a deflect and it falls to Hankin, who fires it into bottom left corner.
3:24pm Sat 24 Mar 12: A great chance goes begging! The keeper flaps at a Mickey Demetriou cross, Dave Hankin sends a perfect cross in and with goal at his mercy, Malbon flashes a header wide from six-yards out.
3:23pm Sat 24 Mar 12: A small selection of Harriers fans begin chanting 'Come on Kiddy' in a bid to raid their shell-shocked troops.
3:22pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Harriers created a decent chance. Anthony Malbon heads ball down to Jack Byrne on edge of the box and his volley is firm but straight at keeper.
3:16pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Goal! Harriers find themselves trailing after being undone by a long throw-in. Aaron Brown's throw is headed on by Drewe Broughton and Ryan Bowman head the ball home. The home malaise continues.
3:15pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Ryan Bowman races down the right and flashes a shot into side netting.
3:10pm Sat 24 Mar 12: After quiet first five minutes, Harriers are starting to warm-up. Lee Vaughan drives in from right but an attempt to swap passes with Steve Guinan doesn't quite come off. Jack Byrne also powers into the box but a defender just makes an interception.
3:04pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Yellow card First real action of the game - Tom Marshall has been foolishly fouled by Ryan Bowman, who is rightly booked.
3:00pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Very little has happened so far. Harriers have yet to create a chance. Darlington's away kit is bright green.
3:00pm Sat 24 Mar 12: Leading the line for Darlington today is ex-Harrier Drewe Broughton, who is a rare old head in a young team. Broughton scored at Aggborough for Alfreton in September. Darlington (4-4-2): Pickford (GK); Arnison (RM); Brown (LB); Johnson (CB); Keltie (CM); Taylor (LM); Broughton (F); Bowman (CM); McReady (CB); Hollis (CB); Wainwright (RB).
