7:00: Wayne Curtis is a fraction offside down Barrow's right wing. It's been a lively start by both sides.

3:00: Barrow keeper Alan Martin fumbles a cross under pressure from Justin Richars but the ball is stabbed wide.
1:00: Formation correction: It looks as Craig Armstrong starts at left-back, which means that Andy Ferrell is in midfield.
0:00: Harriers have to win back the fans who booed them at home last week. What do you reckon, Aggborough faithful, did that performance last week justify the abuse they received? The manager definitely wasn't happy because he's made four changes. It's back to the formation they used in the first three games of the season. It's also a big chance for Darryl Knights, who hasn't had many chances to impress in the Blue Square Premier.
0:00: Barrow manager Dave Bayliss has Alan Martin in goal with a back four of Natt Kerr (RB), Carlos Logan (LB), Paul Jones (CB) and Marcus Holness (CB). The hosts have Paul Brown on the left wing, Matt Henney on the right with Luke Sharry and Mark Boyd in the central midfield spots. Up front the Bluebirds have Jason Walker and Wayne Curtis.
0:00: Manager Mark Yates has made four changes to his Harriers line-up, dropping Lee Baker out of the squad completely and leaving Martin Brittain, Stefan Moore and Brian Smikle on the bench. Instead Darryl Knights is handed a rare league start and will play behind the front two of Justin Richards and Matthew Barnes-Homer. Andy Ferrell moves to left-back, while new signing Craig Armstrong makes his debut in a midfield three.
0:00: Good afternoon Harriers fans, welcome to Shuttle Online's live match updates for the Blue Square Premier clash at Holker Street. Harriers will be trying to bounce back from their 2-0 loss to Weymouth by recording a victory against Barrow. They have good memories around here, as the last time they came to Cumbria they won 4-0 in the 1998-99 season. Can they repeat that impressive feat?
