4:54pm

That is it! Harriers did not do enough to win this game. The big difference as finishing, Ben Tomlinson had two chances and put them away. In contrast, Harriers saw more of the ball in the second period but struggled to really create much. Harriers have also not won away in the league for eight games, a record hurting their play-off hopes.

4:49pm

The attendance is 2012 with 145 very noisy Harriers fans.

4:20pm

Harriers do make a change but Freddie Ladapo replaces Gittings in the 58th minute.

4:19pm

Somehow Vaughan escapes with a yellow card. I am not sure what provoked the defender into lashing out but he is lucky to be on pitch. If I was Thorn I would get him off.

4:06pm

Second half is under way.

3:49pm

That is half-time. Harriers go into the break trailing having not really tested the rookie keeper Lincoln are fielding. The hosts have had more of the ball so Harriers need to take back the initiative in the second half.

3:46pm

A worry here as AMS is injured. 

The hitman is okay to return to the fray.

Delay in play as Callum Gittings needs treatment. The midfielder walks gingerly to touch line but returns to the action.

 

In the meantime, Harriers nearly score. Another good free-kick by Storer is met by the Josh Gowling but his header loops a fraction over.

3:29pm

29- Great block by Storer! Delano Sam-Yorke races onto a header on the left and pulls the ball back to Tomlison but Harriers' skipper puts his body on the line to deny him.

3:28pm

At the moment, Lincoln are just imposing their physicality on Harriers and conceding fouls as a result.

3:26pm

Lincoln hit back with two corners in a row, which Harriers survive. 

3:25pm

Harriers win the first corner of game. Storwr sends in a decent ball and after the ball ricochets odd a defender, AMS dives in with a thumping header which crashes off the bar but not over the line. The Imps survive after an big scramble.

3:23pm

Jake Sheridan is booked for Lincoln.

3:19pm

Too easy. Delano Sam Yorke wins the ball off Callum Gittings, drives down the right to the line and a low ball a Ross the box , which top scorer Ben Tomlinspn hammers home at fat post for goal number 16.

3:18pm

Goal! Tomlinson! 

3:17pm

18- Marvin Johnson goes for goal 20-yards out with a low skidding effort but once again it is not hard or accurate enough to test Townsend. 

3:16pm

16- Charlee Adams tries an ambitious 30-yard effort which dips down and is off target.

3:12pm

12- AMS is fouled and Storer steps up to take FK on the left. The ball is headed away and despite Harriers getting it back they give it away and Lincoln drove forward.

3:11pm

So a set back for Harriers but AMS is a good replacement playing doesn't he centre of a front three for the Carpetmen.

3:09pm

Harrierss are forced into an early change as Gash is replaced by Amari Morgan-Smith.

3:01pm

2- Harriers attack but the flag goes up as Mike Gash iis slightly off side.

2:59pm

We are off! 

2:54pm

A note on the weather, it is dry but pretty windy. Not quite in the same scale as Gateshead two weeks ago but it may well have an effect on the game. 

2:52pm

Of course, Harriers have recorded a fine win at Peterborough in the FA Cup and played well at Sunderland, but have not been able to produce those away performances in the Conference. 

2:51pm

Harriers have not a game away in the Skrill Premier since Southport in October. Can they end a sequence if seven games in the League without a win this afternoon? 

Lincoln's home form is solid with seven wins, four draws and five losses, so this is a chance for Kidderminster to end their poor away form.

2:44pm

Also, Chey Dunkley also makes his first start under Thorn's regime. The gifted centre back was arguably Harriers' best player up until December. That will no doubt see Mickey Demetriou switch from CB to LB. 

 

2:40pm

Just to mention, that Josh O'Keefe makes his first start for Harriers since joining from Hereford. The big name missing is Danny Jackman, who had been playing well at left-back.

2:24pm

On-loan Birmingham City keeper Nick Townsend debuts for the Imps. He is in for first choice, Paul Farman, who injured a knee against Hyde last week.

2:23pm

Lincoln: Townsend, Miller, Brown, Audel, Newton, Jordan, Adams, Power, Sheridan, Tomlinson, Sam-Yorke.

Subs: Rowe, Gray, Robinson, Nolan, Preece. 
Referee: Ben Toner.

2:21pm

Harriees press officer Matt Wall confirms Danny Lewis has a virus, so is only only the bench as a precaution.

2:17pm

Interestingly, the word is that Lewis has a virus but has been included on the bench. Lewis was deemed at fault for the freak goal Gateshead conceded at Gateshead two weeks ago. Perhaps Andy Thorn wants to assess his other keeper Nathan Vaughan.

2:15pm

Harriers: N Vaughan, L Vaughan, Demetriou, Gowling, Dunkley, Storer, Byrne, Gittings, O'Keefe, Gash, Johnson.

Subs: Grimes, Morgan-Smith, Ladapo, Alo, Lewis. 

2:14pm

Surprising team news here as keeper Danny Lewis misses out because of a virus and is replaced by Nathan Vaughan.

2:12pm

Good afternoon Harriers fans! Welcome to The Shuttle's live match updates.
