ROCK solid Kidderminster continued their impressive defensive record at Moss Rose on Saturday, writes Peter McKinney.

Harriers kept their fourth straight clean sheet, the first time in living memory that they had started the season in such resilient fashion.

Gary Whild’s side never looked in danger of conceding and edged the game in terms of possession and the handful of chances created.

Craig Reid was denied by keeper Rhys Taylor and Aman Verma fizzed an effort not far wide but substitute Reece Styche headed over the best opportunity in the 83rd minute.

Assistant manager Mark Creighton said: “We knew it was going to be a tough day but having seen how they were set up we felt we were better than them and should have won the game.”
