KIDDERMINSTER Harriers have reached the third round of the Emirates FA Cup for the first time in eight years as they beat National League side FC Halifax Town 2-0 in front of a raucous sell out crowd at Aggborough.

Amari Morgan-Smith's goal after just three minutes was soon followed by Ashley Hemmings's close-range drive as The Reds beat the side a league above them.

Omari Sterling and Elliot Bonds went close to adding to the lead in the second-half but Kidderminster eventually progressed into the next round with relative comfort, much to the joy of the 4,296 fans in attendance.

Harriers will be joined in the third-round draw with the Premier League sides who come in at this stage and the prospect of a trip to the likes of Old Trafford, Anfield or even the Etihad is on the cards.

The draw will be done live on ITV4 at 7pm.
