Match Report
Harriers continued their run of good form recording their ninth win in ten games despite fielding six trialists in the line-up. Goalkeeper Jamie Attwell of Tottenham, defenders Gareth Strange of Manchester United, Tim McCann and Tommy Goodwin of Leicester, and Chris Lightfoot from Crewe.

Hednesford also fielded a strong line-up but the quality of Harriers' trialists and the experience of the senior players was central to Harriers' dominance of the first half.

Harriers created a succession of chances in the opening period, trialist Julian Williams forced Mark Gayle into three saves and missed two more as the home side clocked up seventeen shots at goal. However, for all of the possession, Harriers only went in at the break one up, Lightfoot powerfully heading home Ducros' corner.

The number of goalmouth incidents decreased dramatically after the interval, but Harriers increased their ead when a through ball by Daire Doyle set up Andy Corbett who shot into the bottom corner of the net.

A neat finish by Leon Brown, who lobbed Dean Craven's pass over Attwell reduced the arrears after 64 minutes but Hednesford never looked in danger of preventing Harriers from taking maximum points.
