It is over! There is no doubting whose name will be on Harriers fans' name after that stunning camel. He bagged a hat-trick in 20 minutes. What must Ryan Rowe be thinking after that display?
What a goal! Harriers had better been handing Lolley a deal after a stunning effort. The cross came in from the right and the 20-year-old smashes a first time volley past the keeper.
Lolley nearly scores a hat-trick when he races down the right but his shot races across the face of goal.
Amidst the Lolley love-in, Harriers have made some changes. Nathan Vaughan was on for Lewis and Ty Williams, fresh with a new deal, replaced Gittings.
Goal! Joe Lolley is loving this. He makes another electric run and then ships the ball over prone Price. Beautiful!
Chasetown have made several changes. Andy Westwood came on for Tesfa Robinson earlier. Nick Wellecomme and Simon Brown and Alex Forde have also came on.
Goal! Joe slaloms through Chasetown's defence and then fire in a low shot to increase Kidderminster's lead.
69- Marvin Johnson drives down the left and fires in a shot but Richard Teesdale blocks with his body.
Chasetown made a change a few minutes ago. It looks as though Jack Farmer has replaced Chris Slater. It might not be as Farmer's number on the team sheet is 19 but he's wearing 24.
Lee Fowler has replaced Dior Angus around the hour mark.
Changes for Harriers. Joe Lolley replaces Ryan Rowe in the 58th minute. A minute before the goal, Jamie Tolley replaced Jack Byrne.
Goal! Door Angus slots home to put Harriers ahead.
52- Johnson droves down the left and delivers a deep cross and Dior Angus heads over at the far post.
Harriers have made one change, with Marv Johnson on for Jamie Grimes. He seems to be at right back.
That is half-time! Harriers edged the first half and they could have scored another if they had been sharper in the box. But Chasetown have given them a thorough test and if not for Lewis's heroics in goal, would have been on level terms.
Save! Grant Beckett's effort lacked conviction and he rolls it tamely. Danny Lewis dives to his right to take the ball.
Penalty to Chasetown! Dunkley fouls Danny Smith after a right old tussle.
38- Gash fires over the bar. Chasetown have had a period when they have had more of the ball but have not troubled Harriers too much.
29- Ryan Rowe hesitates in the box and instead of shooting twists and turns in the box before the chance goes begging. The striker needs a goal to improve his confidence.
28- Dior Angus break free and sends in a ball for Rowe, who tries a Thierry Henry-eesquire back heel but Price blocks it at the neat post.
25- Dior Angus fired over the bar after a pacy Reds break. The wideman started the move with James Dance and it was Gash who had slipped the ball to the winger from 12-yards out.
Keeper Ryan Price fails to deal with a Jamie Grimes cross and the ball falls to Mike Gash, who makes no mistake from eight yards out.
18- Danny Lewis does really well to ride the challenges and send in a cross which Lewis had to tip over.
17- Kyle Storer sees a shot deflected behind for a corner.
Storer sends in a corner and Rowe heads it goalwards but Richard Teesdale clears it off line.
14- Theo Robinson drives forward and then from distance fires over the bar for home side.
12- Harriers trying to open up Chase with their fluent passing game but the home side are defending well. Up front, Gary Hay and Danny Smith are making good runs and not making it easy for Gowling or Dunkley.
10- James Dance drives forward and flashes a low 20-yard wide. Harriers starting to find their feet here.
8- Harriers put together an eight or nine pass move which results in Ryan Rowe seeing a shot saved by keeper Ryan Proce.
6- Chasetown's Danny Bragoli keeps hold the ball under pressure and sprays a pass out to the left but Chey Dunkley has it covered.
1- Harriers force a corner early on but Storer's ball is headed out.
So, it looks as though Harriees will have Mike Gash and Ryan Rowe up front. Gowling and Dunkley will be in central defence, while Grimes will be left-back. Callum Gittings may be at right back.
Assistant boss Gary Whild is in charge of team affairs today as Steve Burr is on holiday.
Chasetown: Price, Slater, Keenan, Beckett, Tesfa Robinson, Teesdale, Butler, Bragoli, Smith, Hay, Theo Robinson.
Subs: Brown, Downing, Forde, Wellecomme, Westwood, Agbor, Farmer, Watson.
Interestingly, there is no Mickey Demetriou, Anthony Malbon, Lee Vaughan or Nathan Blissett in Harriers' but the team looks very decent indeed.
Harriers: Lewis, Dance, Grimes, Gowling, Dunkley, Gittings, Byrne, Angus, Storer, Gash, Rowe.
Subs: Fowler, Tolley, Johnson, Lolley, Williams, N Vaughan.
I am just waiting for a team sheet, so should have team news very soon.
Striker Joe Lolley is also out working with Harriers' players as well.
Just arrived at The Scholars Ground and it is quite quiet at the moment. Harriers have are out warming up and I can see the likes of Lee Fowler, Josh Gowling, Jack Byrne and Danny Lewis out there, so Kidderminster have sent a strong squad.
Good afternoon Harriers. Those unable to make the trip to Chasetown can follow the action with my live match blog, which will be up and running by 2.30pm.
