How they rated:

Harriers 3, Stockport 1

Hall: Made a brilliant save in the first half and collected well in the second. His distribution could have been better but a solid showing. 7.

Pearson: Defended okay and had a hand in the second after a neat ball inside to Bradley started the move. One important clearance off the line in first half. 6.5.

Austin: Struggled at times on the left with a few loose touches but did work hard to link up with moves forward. 6.

Croasdale: Another neat showing from the skipper. Nearly netted in the second half when helping the ball beyond the keeper but the post kept it out. 7.

Horsfall: Defended well alongside O'Connor and read the game well to limit the visitors. 7.

O'Connor: A really big showing from the defended who seemed to be in the way of everything. Blocked well and won important headers as County pushed late on. 8.

Weeks: Good performance from the midfielder who got Harriers on the front foot. Won the ball before Bradley added a crucial third. 7.

Ironside: Led the line well and bagged an important early goal to move onto 21 for the season. 7.

Bradley: A very impressive performance from the attacker. Scored one and set up another and was a constant threat until his withdrawal on the hour mark. 8.
