40:00: It doesn't matter because Harriers battle hard and clear the set-piece.

19:00: Harriers' front two are working hard but there's lot of high balls, which don't really suit the diminutive Darryl Knights.
15:00: Danger for the visitors! Martin Riley tracks back well and blocks Matt Tubbs for a corner. The striker swings the ball in and after two failed attempts to get the ball in the ball falls to Charles Ademeno in the area. Luckily for Harriers he stabs the ball wide.
13:00: Matt Tubbs gets the ball on the left wing but is pressed back by Mark Creighton and Keith Lowe. The forward tries an ambitious 30-yard effort that screws wide of goal.

10:00: It's been a frenetic start to the match, with both teams really going for it. Let's hope it continues.

2:00: Harriers are fired up and after David McDermott and Matthew Barnes-Homer swap passes on the edge of Salisbury's box, Chris McPhee tries a first-time shot that keeper James Bittner has covered.
1:00: Matthew Barnes-Homer almost hands Harriers a perfect start, when he fires a low 20-yard effort just wide.
0:00: Both sets of players walk out and shake hands. Harriers look determined, can they do it?
0:00: Harriers may well be outside of the play-offs but they have the games in hand to get back ino the top five. What you think, Harriers fans, can they convert games into valuable points?
0:00: Matthew Barnes-Homer is in absolutely brilliant form for Harriers with six goals in the last four Blue Square Premier clashes. This is a chance he could pull level or even surpass Justin Richards' tally of 16 goals this season. 'Barnesy' is just one behind his fellow hitman.
0:00: In contrast to the game at Woking it's bright and thankfully dry. There is a stiff breese but nothing to affect today's clash.
0:00: Salisbury manager Tommy Widdrington has James Bittner in goal. The defence is made up of Sean Clohessy (right-back), while the on-loan Torquay duo Christopher and Michael Brough Todd are in central defence. Luke Riddick is The Whites' left-back. The four-man midfield has Darrell Clarke on the left, Charles Adememo the right and Mike Fowler and Ian Herring in central midfied. Sixteen-goal Charlie Griffin plays with Matt Tubbs up front for the home side.
0:00: Hello fans! Welcome to Shuttle Online's live match updates for Salisbury v Harriers at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium. Manager Mark Yates picks the same siede that started in the abandoned mid-week clash at Woking. That means Justin Richards has to be happy with a place on the bench. Russ Penn is also available a substitute because the central midfield partnership of Chris McPhee and Dean Bennett has looked very promising.
