72- Corner to Welling. Ouani's poor delivery cut out by Demetriou.

69- Josh Gowling stands up strong and beats Lafayette to the ball the home fans howl for a penalty but nothing doing.

65- Big miss for Welling. Healy feeds in Ouani, who plays in a teasing low ball but Layafette fires wide from close range.

That is the break! This has been more like it from Kidderminster, who have looked hungrier and more urgent.

We will find out in the second half.

Yellow card for Welling's Jake Gallagher.
21- N Vaughan scrambles across to get to Ross Lafayette's low shot which was going to sneak in at base of left post.

18- Hudson pushes Gash and Harriers a FK in a good position centrally.
Demetriou's low delivery hits wall.

10- Nathan Vaughan's first touch of the ball was to gather in a a low shot from Blaine Hudson.

6- Good work by James Dance to holds up ball in box after a good run but his pass out to Gash on the right goes out of play.

3- Both teams looking to get ball down and play.
Welling wearing red and white, Kiddy in their fetching purple and yellow kit.
Hope harriers don't lose a defender or centre mid to injury given the 2 wingers and 2 strikers on the bench!— @simonc1607 07 September 2013
It is worth noting that with Dior Angus, Johnson, Blissett and AMS, this is a VERY attack-minded bench for Harriers!
Amari Morgan-Smith starts on the bench after joining the club as a free agent on a short term deal.
Welling are unchanged from the side which lost to Hereford 2-1. There are four changes on the bench, with only Joe Obersteller surviving.
Welling v Harriers team sheet. Dance, Malbon, N Vaughan and Jackman in. http://t.co/L9KdmCU2vY— @PeteMc78 07 September 2013
Welling: Butcher, Jack Obersteller, Gallagher, Franks, Berquist, Clarke, Lafayette, Pires, Hudson, Dyer, Healy.
Subs not used: Mott, Fazakerley, Guthrie, Joe Obersteller, Malik Ouani.
Referee: Nicholas Kinseley.
So Steve Burr has made four changes to the side which lost to Luton.
Nathan Vaughan is handed his first start of the season instead of Danny Lewis.
Anthony Malbon, Danny Jackman and James Dance (who is also making his first league start for Harriers) are also in.
Joe Lolley and Callum Gittings are out of the squad, while Marvin Johnson is on the bench.
Harriers: N Vaughan, L Vaughan, Demetriou, Storer, Dunkley, Fowler, Gash, Malbon, Jackman, Dance, Gowling.
Subs: Lewis, Johnson, Blissett, Angus, Morgan-Smith.
Still waiting for team sheets here. Harriers players training in front of us. Steve Guinan is putting them through their paces and they all look lively.
Harriers have a number of injuries, with Jamie Tolley, Jack Byrne and Callum Gittings all out.
But the Carpetmen are well-stocked in midfield and can still field James Dance,bodies Angus, Lee Fowler, Kyle Storer or Danny Jackman.
Up front, Amari Morgan-Smith (AMS) is back but will he start? Joe Lolley looks set to be rested, so Harriers have the out of favour Nathan Blissett, and out of form, Marvin Johnson, Anthony Malbon and Michael Gash to call on. It will be interesting to see who Steve Burr and Gary Whild pick up front?
The players have gone into the changing room and apart from the Arctic Monkeys blaring out of the PA system, it has gone very quiet.
Welling's ground really epitomises non-league, it is slightly ramshackle with two worn looking seating areas and standing on each end.
Harriers' squad are soaking up the sunlight on the pitch. There was a small shower about 40 minutes ago but the weather is okay now.
Steve Burr had a long chat with keeper Nathan Vaughan, could he be starting instead of Danny Lewis?
We're about an hour or so away from team news, but I will be back then with the line-ups for both clubs.
The big question is who will Amari Morgan-Smith replace in the team?
My media pal, BBC's Steve Miller, has just told me this is the only ground where he's been threatened with eviction. That was 27 years ago when Worcester were playing Welling, so I am sure that won't happen this afternoon!
Good afternoon Harriers fans! I am sitting in the press box at Welling, ready to keep you all informed on how Kidderminster fare at Skrill Premier newcomers Welling, who boast a good record at home.
