94:00: Final whistle Harriers can't force a fourth but it doesn't matter, they've won this game handsomely and are closing in on the top five.
93:00: Brian Smikle's low cross forces a corner.
91:00: Goal! Chris McPhee grabs his first goal for the club and makes sure of a well-deserved victory. Stefan Moore delivered a cross, which the midfielder dived to head beyond the keeper.
88:00: Matthew Barnes-Homer forces a one-handed save from Danny Knowles. It came after some good play by the forward to set Brian Smikle free. The ball came back to him from Martin Brittain.
86:00: Substitution Stefan Moore comes on for Justin Richards, who is applauded off the pitch by the appreciative home fans.
85:00: From a free-kick, Joel Ledgister curls over the wall but it's an easy take for Adam Bartlett.
82:00: Substitution Martin Brittain comes on for Dean Bennett.
81:00: First shot by Woking, Kelvin Bossman hammers over the bar from distance.
80:00: Justin Richards chases Chris McPhee's clever pass. He powers into the left side of the box only to be barged off the ball by Paul Lorraine. The referee blows for a Woking free-kick, another strange decision.
72:00: Well, the goal of the season competition has probably been won by Justin Richards. He meets Matthew Barnes-Homer but directs his stooping header at the keeper.
71:00: Substitution Woking make another change, Liam Marum replaces Rob Elvins.
70:00: After good work by Brian Smikle, Matthew Barnes-Homer saw a strong low shot saved by the keeper.
69:00: Substitution Paolo Vernazza is booked for a foul.
67:00: Goal! Absolutely super goal by Justin Richards. Russ Penn started the moved and found the striker, who drove forward 15-yards and powered in a dipping 30-yard effort from the right wing. It's a super goal.
65:00: Chris McPhee fires over from 20-yards out after more pressure from the hosts.
63:00: Substitution Brian Smikle replaces Darryl Knights as Harriers moved from 4-3-2-1 to 4-4-2.

58:00: More good build-up by Harriers sees Justin Richards deliver a cross from the right which is missed by everyone.
57:00: Which is headed out by a Woking defender.
56:00: The pressure is really coming from the hosts. They win another corner...
55:00: Russ Penn is fouled by Kelvin Bossman and Harriers are awarded a free-kick on the left. Darryl Knights' shot hits the wall.

49:00: It's a quiet start to the second half but the goal must force Woking to change their defensive approach.
47:00: The referee missed a debateable handball early in the second half as Harriers try to build on their goal.
46:00: Going into the second half, the results are going Harriers way. Crawley are beating Wrexham 2-0 and Torquay are losing 1-0 at Northwich. As long as Harriers can pick up all three points this could be a good day for them.
45:00: Half time Plus two mins. Harriers go into the break ahead. They have struggled to break down Woking but deserve it for the pressure.
45:00: Plus one: The announcer gives the goal to Martin Riley, but I'm not so sure that he got a touch.
45:00: Goal! Harriers have some luck. Keith Lowe's deep free-kick is missed by everyone one. It may have came off Martin Riley and bounced into the net.

39:00: Harriers win a free-kick but Woking desperately keep them at bay.
37:00: Russ Penn volleys over the bar from Keith Lowe's cross. Harriers are building up the pressure. They musn't let their frustration with the referee boil over though.
35:00: The home fans erupt after Konan the Barbarian dragged Justin Richards back as he chased a long ball forward. It was at least a free-kick and perhaps even a sending off but the referee ignored it. To quote Alan Hansen 'it's unbelievable'.
34:00: Harriers concede a corner but Oliver Bozanic's delivery is cleared away.
32:00: Lee Baker's cross is headed behind for Harriers' first corner. Darryl Knights sends it it but Woking clear.
30:00: Lovely play by Harriers. Chris McPhee and Darryl Knights swap passes and set Matthew Barnes-Homer in the box. He shoots but Colin Miles makes a determined block.
29:00: Russ Penn does really well to break down the left, take out his man but is let down by a poor cross.
27:00: Wilfried Domoraud races onto a ball by Patrice Konan but his first touch is heavy and Adam Bartlett kicks away.
25:00: Harriers are the better side but they lack a bit of shape. It's a frustrating affair.

16:00: Harriers have their first attempt on goal. Keith Lowe's long throw-in was missed by the visiting defence. It bounced high for Richards, who hit it over the bar.
15:00: Harriers are resorting to the long ball too much to try and break down Woking, they just need some composure.
11:00: Clever run by Matthew Barnes-Homer, who controls a long ball but his pass across the edge of the box misses everyone.
10:00: Nice play by the hosts. Dean Bennett finds Chris McPhee on the right. His pass comes off Joe Anderson and sets Matthew Barnes-Homer down the wing but as he crosses, he is a fraction out of play.
8:00: Chris McPhee gets the ball across the box but a Woking defended heads away. There's no pattern fo play yet.
7:00: That's it, Patrice Konan will now be refered to as Konan the Barbarian!
6:00: Justin Richards is smothered by Patrice Konan and pulled down in the penalty area as he battles for the ball. It looked a decent shout for a penalty but the forward didn't even argue when the referee waved play on.
5:00: Mark Yates is prompting some calmness from his team and telling his side to get hold of the ball.
4:00: The game started hectically, with Woking matching Harriers' menance with a robust approach. Darryl Knights is looking lively and has already came close to releasing Matthew Barnes-Homer and Justin Richards with some slide-rule passes.
1:00: Inside the first minute, Colin Miles hacks down Justin Richards in the centrecircle with a meaty challenge. Hopefully that'll fire him up.
