HARRIERS snatched a dramatic 93rd-minute winner to see off Wealdstone in an otherwise dour spectacle at Aggborough in the National League.

A game that rarely threatened to produce a victor ended up doing so in the most chaotic of fashions, Amari Morgan-Smith netting his third of the campaign with just seconds on the clock.

In something of a rarity this season, Harriers were able to name an unchanged squad for this game with both the starting eleven and substitutes untouched from the midweek victory over Dorking Wanderers.

The lion’s share of a paltry forward offering in a quiet first half came early – Harriers fashioning the first chance of the day inside just six minutes when excellent hold-up play saw Gerry McDonagh edge the ball into the area before getting blocked off. The ball fell into the path of Morgan-Smith who, from 12 yards, fired at goal and forced Jed Ward into a strong save.

Wealdstone’s effort came shortly after and from the boot of Micah Obiero, who struck from 20 yards with a low effort that beat the dive of Christian Dibble, but also his far post.

Bailey Hobson, fresh from his goal in midweek, had an effort blocked as the half wore on, but it wasn’t until the opening throws of the second period that either goalkeeper again found themselves worked. At that point it was Dibble, who made a smart parry from Tarryn Allarakhia’s shot, but an even better riposte to former Harrier Tahvon Campbell’s follow-up.

Past the hour, substitute Ashley Hemmings, on for the injured Joe Leesley, twice found time and space to cut inside and shoot. The first was a sighter of sorts and was comfortably off target, but the second needing a touch from Ward to turn it away from danger.

That chance looked to have taken with it any real prospect of a result, but Harriers turned what looked to a be a just-about palatable point into three priceless ones with the dramatic winner.

Sammy Robinson’s free kick, in the third minute of added time, was knocked down in the area and swept home by the legs of Morgan-Smith from just a few yards to spark an explosion of noise inside what had been a quiet Aggborough for much of the afternoon.

There was no time for Wealdstone to respond as the home team and fans were left to celebrate their victory while the visitors were left to face the recriminations of their angered 200 supporters.

For the first time this season, Harriers take a break from National League action next weekend.

They enter the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday, 14th October when they host Northern Premier Division side Ashton United at Aggborough (3pm).
