It is over! Harriers were a minute away from their first away win since Ocotber. It had been a frustrating end to the game for Gary Whild's boys.


During the melee, Angus MacDonald was also sent off. 


Harriers force a corner but Grimes cannot get enough contact to the ball. 


95- Sherringham steps up and slams ball down the middle. Lewis had dived to his left but City make it 1-1!


92- Chaos in Harriers' box! A City player looks as though he heads wide but the referee blows for a penalty. Clearly they felt someone had got a hand to it.

Salisbury are really applying some pressure now and Jackman is by the halfway line. He comes off the pitch and clearly cannot go on.

Amari Morgan-Smith has slotted into midfield. Harriers have to hold on now. 


But no! Jackman is ready to return to the action. He is walking a little gingerly though.


Jackman limps off with the help of physio Gavin Crowe. Not sure if he will be able to play on.


Harriers' coaching team discuss what to do next and the stretcher finally arrives.

Harriees have made all three substitutions so would be down to ten men.

58- First change for Kiddy as Josh O'Keefe replaces Gittings.


Harriers went into half-time 1-0 up. Salisbury have had a fair bit of pressure and Danny Lewis did well to get to Kamdjo's close range header. 


Hi folks. I have been suffering from technical problems so have been  unable to update. Hopefully I am back in action.


I have to say Amari'i Bell has made a very good start here. He has defended solidly and made no mistakes. Haven't seem job of him going forward but he is doing very well so far and has kept a close on Clovus Kamdjo.


At this stage, Harriers have moved three places up to seventh. There is a long way to go though.


Great finish! Gash heads Danny Lewis's long ball into the path of the unmarked midfielder, who 20-yards out lasts a fantastic effort into bottom left corner.


Goal! Gittings!


33- So far both sides have worked hard to try and create chances but there has been little in terms of chances. Sherringham's effort over the bar has been the clearest.


31- Callum Gittings tries to take down the ball by raising his foot high and Theo Lewis can't help but run into it.  A complete accident but the Harrieers man is booked.


30- Free-kick to hosts but MacDonald's effort hits the wall.


27- Another corner for Harriers but the same result as Storer's delivery is cleared.


24- A Harriers shot forces a corner and Bittner spills Storer's delivery.

Harriers force a second successive set piece but Storer's cross is headed away.


23- Chance for Harriers! Amari Morgan-Smith chases down a long ball and as keeper James Bittner races out, the strike can't quite make the killer touch. He leaps over the stopper but off balance and on a tight angle he fires across the face of goal.


20- Salisbuy applying some pressure now. Sheringham is played in by a low ball from the left but he is closed down by Grimes and Demetriou.


19- Byrne catches Fitchett to concede a free-kick 25-yards out. 

Angus McDonald's effort hits the wall.


17- Lee Vaughan wins a corner.

Callum Gittings takes it but his cross was headed away by a home defender.


16- City's Ryan Brett powers forward and goes for goal from distance but Danny Lewis has it covered and takes it comfortably.


13- Storer rebukes himself after he tries an ambitious curling pass that goes out of play for a goal kick.


12- Amari'i Bell does well to track back and get between Dan Fitchett and the ball as he springs the off side trap and traces goalwards.


10- good work by Malbon on the right, he refuses to loses the ball, holds off his marker and delivers a cross. Gash just gets underneath it and heads over. Not an easy chance but demonstrates Harriers' determination.


9- Miss! Charlie Sherringham fires over the bar from 15 yards after being teed up nicely by Clovis Kamdjo.


8- So far Harriers have looked quite bright when they have got the ball. 


7- Theo Lewis wins the ball off Byrne and sprays a pass forward but the flag goes up for offside.


After six minutes of watching from the stands, Harris marches out of the press box muttering to himself. 


5- Nice little move. Gash heads a Bell long ball into Byrne's path and  he back heels  it to Malbon, who fires a shot at keeper Bittner.


4- Lee Vaughan makes a raid down the right and wins a corner. 

Kyle Storer slips as he takes it and the ball is huge and wide. The home fans cheer as Harriers' skipper falls on his bum.


City boss Mikey Harris is watching the game to the Kiddy press's right. B interesting to see his reactions.


We are off! 


Both sets of players walk out to rapturous applause.


While Demetriou and Grimes are playing together for the first time in central defence both have played well when called upon as centre backs. They are up against a Salisbury side who have scored one goal in six games.


Salisbury have made several changes from the side which lost against Cambridge. In comes Dan Fichett, Theo Lewis and Frear.

Stuart and Robbie Sinclair and Jamie White miss out.


Salisbury: Bittner, Brett, Clarke, Wilson, Lewis, Frear, Kamdjo, Fitchett, MacDonald, Amankwaah, Sheringham.

Subs: McPhee, White, Flint, George.


Defender Josh Gowling misses out because of a muscle strain issue in his stomach. With Chey Dunkley still recovering from his knee surgery it means Mickey Demetriou will switch from left-back to centre back to partner Jamie Grimes.

But there is good news as Kyle Storer returns from his four match absence to play in midfield.


Harriers: Lewis, L Vaughan, Demetriou, Storer, Byrne, Gash, Malbon, Grimes, Gittings, Morgan-Smith, Bell.

Subs: Blissett, Wright, Jackman, N Vaughan, O'Keefe.


Harriers will want to end a run of away games in the Conference without a win that stretches back to October. 

Salisbury boast a very good home record with just three losses all season in the league. But they have just one win in eight games and  lost 3-0 at home to Cambridge on Wednesday night.


Once again prospective promotion chasers play each other. Braintree, who leapt from 11th to fifth with a win over Welling on Thursday, are at Gateshead and Nuneaton tackle Alfreton.

So it is imperative that Harriers extend Gary Whild's unbeaten record to sixth games.


Harriers have slipped to tenth in the Skrill Premier after a week where many of their rivals for the play-offs have played each other. The bottom line is Kidderminster are two points off fifth-place.


I have arrived at Salisbury. It is a lovely sunny day with a cool breeze blowing through the Raymond McEnhill Stadium. Note am news yet but I am sure it won't be too long away.


Good morning Harriers fans. Harriers aim to get back on track at Salisbury this afternoon. I will be back with build-up, team news and  the action from 2pm.
