Goal! Joe Lolley slides a lovely left-footed shot effort past Danby after good work by Gash!
91- Lolley shoots but keeper saves. Good work by Gash.
Chester throw a ball into the box but Danny Lewis rises highest to take the ball.
Three minutes of time added on for Harriers survive.
88- Harriers concede a corner. But the whistle blows for a foul.
Chester make final change when Bury loan player Aiden Chippendale.
Second change for Chester as former Harriers target Jamie Reed replaces Laidler.
80- Chance! Lolley flicks on Storer's corner but a diving Gowling can't quite connect.
Lolley has done well so far and he tries a shot from the edge of the area but the keeper reads it well.
Danny Jackman replaces the out of sorts Lee Fowler. Final change for Harriers.
75- A warming for Harriers as Mills gets free on the right bit chips ball over goal.
73- Change for Chester. Ben Mills replaces Gareth aseddon.
71- Joe Lolley chases a long ball and wins a corner. It is another strong delivery but no one makes the killer touch. Harriers lose the ball with an unusually poor pass from Lee Fowler in the centre circle.
68- Harriers work the ball forward but Joe Lolley is offside.
61- Double change for Harriers. Malbon and Johnson off and advance and Lolley on. Lolley making home debut.
60- Harriers win a corner. Storer's delivery is good but no one can connect.
Harriers have a spare shirt, so it looks like Gowling's injured his nose again.
55- Break in play as Josh Gowling had been fouled. He is receiving treatment on the pitch.
55- Lee Vaughan crosses from right but Storer can't quite reach it.
52- Lee Vaughan crosses from the right but Johnson's attempt at a volley is high and wide.
51- Nathan Turner sees a long range effort fly over the bar.
50- Chester having a spell of pressure. Lewis takes a cross from the right.
48- Anthony Malbon had a shot saved by keeper. The striker has been quiet so far.
Goal! Harrison pulls one back in the second minute of injury time. The home defence fell asleep and the defender heads home.
Malbon finds Gittings, who slides a lovely pass for Johnson to chase. He runs onto it and slips a first time effort past the keeper. Lovely goal.
42- Chester have to come pit and score but so far they've been pretty ineffective. Chey Dunkley blocks a shot from Jordan Laidler.
40- Free-kick to Harriers.
Lee Vaughan makes a clever run but Lee Fowler sees his effort go over the bar.
39- Chester force a corner. McIntyre swings it in and Kay heads wide at far post.
36- Great move by Harriers who slice through Chester. Vaughan tries a shot but Danby holds it behind line for a corner. Harriers can't take advantage.
Josh Gowling is unmarked in the box and meets Storer's corner with a powerful header to put home side ahead.
Chester were still making about the corner but they were wrong on two counts.
31- Lee Vaughan's free-kick comes off a defender and goes behind jammily for a corner.
28- Harriers fail to defend a free-kick properly. Paul Linwood has a free header and Michael Kay hooks the ball goalwards but Vaughan clears off the line.
27- Danny Lewis makes a great save. He blocks Alex Titchiner's shot with his legs by the near post. He was st up by Nathan Turner.
25- That was close! Lee Vaughan stumbles into McIntyre's high boot. Free-kick to Harriers.
Storer whips in the ball and Mickey Demetriou heads over the bar. Not a great chance, the header had no direction.
Anthony Malbon, Marvin Johnson and Mike Gash are being given very little space to do anything by Chester's defence. I thought if Harriers scored an early goal they might win by a cricket score but now the game is a battle.
Chester have been content to sit back and ask questions of Harriers' attack. They would clearly be happy to take a point now.
Harriers are at their best when they can hit the opposition on the break with pace.
18- Mike Gash is hobbling a bit. If he goes off the other striking option is the rookie Joe Lolley.
14- Good save! Danby tips a hand to Gowling's header at the far post from a Storer corner but the whistle blew as the ball had gone out of play.
13- Chester's Danny Harrison is told off for fouling Malbon but no booking.
11- Lee Vaughan, or as I like to call him 'Vaughaninho' dazzles his marker and drives down the wing but the chance goes begging.
10- Harriers have an attack. Gash nudes the ball to Vaughan who crosse instead of shooting and Malbon stretches to fire into the side netting.
7- Gareth Seddon gets into Harriers' box and crosses from the left but none of his team mates have tread the move and the chance goes blessing.
6- Harriers defend a Chester FK and Gowling swops passes with Gash and hares into the opposition box but a defender slides into stop his run.
Since that early attack, it had been a bit scrappy as Chester try and get forward.
2- Harriees start like a train and force a corner. Storer plays it short to Vaughan, who whips in a decent cross and Mike Gash loops a far post header onto the top of the netting.
Chester have brought what looks to be a pretty big following. There looks to be at least 200 or more making a lot of noise.
Chester hand a debut to Sunderland's Jordan Laidler, who joined yesterday. Winger Jordan Chippendale, on loan from Bury, is on the bench.
Harriers fans will also remember keeper John Danby, who played 80 time for the Carpetmen. He is in goal for Chester this afternoon.
