  • KEEP up with all th action as Harriers take on local rivals Hereford at Edgar Street with The Shuttle's live match updates (7.45pm ko).


That is it! A point is about right and there was very little to separate the sides. It means Harriers move up one place to seven in the Skrill Premier.

Harriers were not at their best but at least they take take something from this game.


Four minutes of time added on.


90- A free-kick from Storer flashes just wide but it looks as though it might have been pushed behind by the keeper. Harriers feel it should be a corner but the refere ignores their pleas.


87- Phew! Rankine spins powerfully in the box and as the ball drops down he hammers a shot over the bar!


Handbags as Lee Vaughan squares up to Brown as the players battled for the ball on the left wing. The Harriers man is booked.


84- Harriees have a free-kick near the centre circle but Jackman's ball goes behind for a goal kick.


Callum Gittid booked for a foul on Artus.


80- Danny Jackman takes in a delightful low cross but it evades keeper Lloyd-Weston and everyone else. It just needed a touch to put Harriers 2-0 up.


The attendance is 2014 with 340 away fans.


Harriers try to break from but he is fouled cynically by Leadbitter, who is booked.


Hereford make a change in the 71st minute when Danny Leadbitter comes on for Chris Sharp.


Save! Danny Lewis does well to get to Artus' fine long range effort.


Jack Dyer is replaced by Callum Gittings a minute after the leveller. 


Gowling gets Harriees back on level terms with a fine header from a Kyle Storer free-kick.


Goal! Gowling 1-1


Harriers fail to deal with a corner and O'Keefe loops a header over Lewis. Now they have to go for it.


Goal! Josh O'Keefe's header puts Harriers behind.


Phew! Michael Rankine's shot hits a defender and flies wide. That was okay effort!


60- AMS is really trying to put himself about and he chases a probing ball forward. In the end he is outnumbered by a keeper and two defenders but still it is an encouraging sign.


59- AMS tries to track back and win the ball but his efforts only concede a corner. The set piece is headed out and from distance Brown shoots high over the bar.


Andy Thorn makes a change. He takes off Ladapo and brings on Amari Morgan-Smith.


50- Hereford have two corners in succession but the second one is too long and the threat ends on Harriers' goal.


47- Harriers have started quite brightly. Storer dinks a nice pass into the box and Ladapo puts it wide. 


Change for Hereford. Jamie Edge replaces Dan Walker.


That is the break. To describe the first first half as flat is an understatement. Hereford have tried to gave a go and have six shots, none of which were on target.

Kidderminster have tried to get forward sporadically but they have not been able to string a pass in the final third.

Luckily, there's another 45 minutes for them to put it right.


43- Artus is adjudged to have fouled Storer on the halfway line. 

After some treatment, Storer gets up but is booed by the home fans who felt he was milking the foul.


Something has happened! Freddie Ladapo wins a corner after a little run down the left.

Dyer's delivery is headed away. 


Nothing has happened. At all. 


36- Good challenge by Mickey Denetriou to deny Rankine, who turns and tries to shoot.


34- Another Hereford shot this time Brown shanks a long range effort over the bar from distance. 


We have yet to see Harriers as an attacking force. The likes of Cieslewicz, Ladapo and Gash have not been able to affect game. Although for the last 10 minutes Hereford have had more of the ball.


Harriers try to respond to Hereford's improvement but a poor cross is easily blocked.


27- Miss! Michael Rankine does well on the left side of the box to drill in a low ball but Frankie Artus blazes over the bar. 


Michael Rankine heads over the bar from a corner. 


25- Herford perk up. Bush drives into the left wing and delivers a good ball. Rankine can't control it but Dan Walker tries a shot but Danny Jackman blocks.


22- Storer tries a decent long range pass for Lee Vaughan but the ball rolls frustratingly out for a goal kick.


18- Gash almost breaks free after the ball ricochets around but United's defence clears the danger.


16- Dan Walker swings in a corner but O'Keefe directs a firm header wide at the near post.


This time th corner is headed on by Danny Jackman but it is straight to a United man.


14- Dyer's dead ball deliveries have been good and Lloyd-Weston has to tip another one over of a second corner.


13- Vaughan breaks free but he is bundled over.

Dyer has a free-kick on the right. Another good delivery which is headed behind for a corner.


Hereford break but Danny Jackman does well to divert Chris Sharp wide as he runs into the box.


10- Corner to Harriers.

Jack Dyer takes. His delivery is decent but the ball is heard away.


8- Storer fouls Brown. Free-kick to United.

The ball is played out wide but the cross is too long.


We are starting to see Andy Thorn impose his style on Harriers. They ate going forward but there seems to be a desire to keep their shape. 


4- Corner to Hereford. 

Harriers struggle to clear Frankie Artus's corner but the ball falls to Josh O'Keefe who fires just wide.


Nice touch and good turn by Ladapo but it comes to nothing.


1- Jon Brown dives down the left but his cross is easily taken by Leiwis.


We are off!


After the excitement of the FA Cup, Harriers return to the Skrill Premier needing wins to get back in the promotion race. 


Apparently, Hereford has three pitch inspections, which is interesting as there was nothing on the official web site.


We are about seven minutes from kick-off and the rain is coming down. The pitch is okay but on the area by the dug outs is particular ly muddy. 


Hereford are unchanged from the slide which edged out Salisbury on Saturday.


Andy Thorn makes tow changes from the side which played some brilliantly at Sunderland.

New signings Adrian Cieslewicz and Freddie Ladapo make their first starts.

Marvin Johnson misses out completely and Amari Morgan-Smith is on the bench.


Hereford: Llolyd-Weston, Bush, McDonald, Graham, O'Keefe, Walker, Sharp, Collins, Rankine, Artus, Brown.

Subs: Ladbitter, Purdie, Smith, Edge, Williams.

Referee: Lee Swabey.


Harriers: Lewis, L Vaughan, Demetriou, Storer, Byrne, Gash, Jackman, Ladapo, Dyer, Cieslewicz, Gowling.

Subs: Dunkley, Gittings, Morgan-Smith, N Vaughan, Aloi.


Good evening Harriers fans! I am awaiting team news and will let you know as soon as possible.
