Hammers test awaits after win over Ayr
8:00pm Thursday 28th February 2013 in News
HARRIERS fans team will continue their defence of the IFA British Supporters Cup in the quarter-finals on Saturday when they entertain West Ham in Cookley.
This will be the first time the two supporters teams have met in what is set to be a hotly-contested competition.
Harriers booked their last eight spot on Saturday after beating Ayr United 4-1 in a repeat of last year’s final.
The home side looked the part as they wore a replica of the Harriers home kit for the first time which was donated by the club’s main sponsor Hire It.
After a frantic first ten minutes it was the home side who started to exert some pressure with man of the match Steve Thomas causing problems for the Ayr defence.
The visitors were still dangerous on the break though and could have got the first goal following a mistake by Dave Goode.
Harriers looked assured at the back with Mitch Pearce dominant in midfield and the chances started to come for the Reds, but just like last year’s final the Ayr goalkeeper was in fine form.
The deadlock was broken when Lewis Pountney’s corner forced an own goal.
The striker scored the decisive second, while Marc Vaughan added a third.
Harriers’ win was secured when Pountney bagged his second, despite a consolation effort for Ayr. Saturday’s quarter-final kicks-off at 10.30am.
