Harriers v Kettering
- Kick off: 3:00pm Sat 14 Apr 12
- Venue: Aggborough
- Final score:
- Kidderminster Harriers 6 - 1 Kettering Town
4:54pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Final whistle It's over! Harriers record their biggest win of the season. It was a much-improved second half display and Harriers move up to fourth in Blue Square Bet Premier.
4:48pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Goal! Mike Williams gets in on the scoring act as he heads home from a Ryan Rowe cross.
4:41pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Goal! Luke Jones is unmarked at the far post and from a Storer FK he powers a forceful header into back of net.
4:40pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Substitution Harriers changes. In all the madness of Rowe's goal, Nick Wright was replaced by Mickey Demetriou in the 73rd. In the 80th, Malbon comes off for Dan Bradley.
4:34pm Sat 14 Apr 12: There's some confusion to whether Rowe and or Jones scored. We'll have to clear it up at end of game.
4:33pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Goal! Ryan Rowe heads in to make it 4-1 from Kyle Storer FK. Harriers are striding to victory.
4:30pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Goal! Anthony Malbon probably makes game safe for Harriers. It was a lovely move. Dave Hankin played Ryan Rowe down left and his sends in a low cross, which Malbon converts from close range.
4:29pm Sat 14 Apr 12: It's all a bit scappy here. Kettering are still battling away and knocking Harriers out of their stride. No real chance for either side.
4:26pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Kettering are still giving it a go and have won several free-kicks without really testing Tony Breeden. Harriers still need a third to make sure of the win.
4:22pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Rowe creates a chance when he crosses from the left but Nick Wright is offside.
4:21pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Substitution Change here for Harriers in 62nd. Ryan Rowe replaces Steve Guinan.
4:15pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Anthony Malbon is fouled by Ashley Westwood. Kyle Storer whips in a good ball and Luke Jones gers under the ball and heads over.
4:14pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Great goal on the counter. Dave Hankin breaks and slips ball down the left to Wright, who races past Max York into the box and firing a left-footed shot into back of net from the angle.
4:13pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Goal! Nick Wright scores!
4:12pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Dave Hankin crosses from the right and Nick Wright's looping header is taken by keeper.
4:04pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Three minutes into the second half, Harriers still looking out of sorts.
3:46pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Half time That's the break. Harriers have been poor but at least they are on level terms. I am sure Steve Burr will put them right at half-time.
3:45pm Sat 14 Apr 12: This has been a poor quality first half by both sides. Tony Breeden gives everyone a scare by rushhing needlessly of his life.
3:44pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Harriers' defence looks jittery. They fail to adequately clear a Ben Ford cross and allow James Gray to try his luck from the edge of the box. Luckily for Harriers it is straight at Tony Breeden.
3:39pm Sat 14 Apr 12: After a bit of treatment, both playes are okay to continue.
3:38pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Injuries about for Harriers. Luke Jones injures himself when challenging a Kettering man in the air. Ref plays advantage and as Nick Wright surges down right he's ploughed into by Nathan Ralph.
3:34pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Despite the goal, Harriers have not really stepped it up here.
3:31pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Dave Hankin hammers in a 20-yard right footed effort with arrows towards top corner but Laurie Walker makes a flying save.
3:30pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Steve Burr is pretty furious with his troops and from the technical area barks they're all a yard too slow. He's spot on!
3:25pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Goal! Harriers are back on level terms! Nick Wright sidefoots spot-kick into bottom right corner. That will callm Harriers' nerves!
3:24pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Penalty to Harriers! Jerel Ifil brings down Anthony Malbon.
3:20pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Goal! Harriers fall behind in the 19th minute. Kettering launch a counter-attack and after Charlie Wyke's shot is blocked, Ben Ford finishes to leave Harriers trailing again.
3:19pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Anthony Malbon is denied twice in a minute. First, a well-taken volley from the edge of the area is saved by Walker. Hankin crosses from the right and Malbon heads into the net at the far post but it is ruled out for a push.
3:13pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Harriers starting to build-up a head of steam. James Vincent's shot takes a deflection and loops wide for a corner.
3:12pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Anthony Malbon needs treatment after an elbow in the face left him with a bloody mouth. He's okay to continue though.
3:11pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Dave Hankin is looking bright. He wins the ball off Nathan Ralph and finds Steve Guinan with a cross. The veteran striker chests it down but is taken a bit wide. Unfortunately, the goal goes back to Kyle Storer, who gives ball away.
3:08pm Sat 14 Apr 12: With the weight of their relegation battle lifted, this young Kettering side are playing with freedom but little penetration.
3:05pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Nick Wright flicks on Lee Vaughan's pass to allow Anthony Malbon to scamper free but the flag goes up for a close off side.
3:03pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Harriers go on the attack and Dave Hankin sends in a low ball from the right which Kettering just about clear with Anthony Malbon lurking menacingly.
3:02pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Kettering have started brightly and Charlie Wyke slots a right-footed shot across the face of goal.
3:00pm Sat 14 Apr 12: We're off!
3:00pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Relegated Kettering could prove to be a bit of a banana skin for Harriers. Steve Burr would dearly love a sixth win in seven to stay in the play-off places. Player/boss Ashley Westwood field a young teams and only four substitutes. Kettering (4-3-3): Walker (GK); Ifil (CB); Kelly (CM); Westwood (CB); Ralph (LB); Mills (F); Bridges (CM); Wyke (F); Ford (CM); Gray (F); York (RB).
3:00pm Sat 14 Apr 12: Good afternoon Harriers fans! Welcome to Shuttle Online's coverage of Harriers versus Kettering. Steve Burr makes two changes to the side which won so dramatically on Monday.
