Kidderminster recorded their first goalless draw of the season, and
so ended Plymouth's winning run. The home team dominated an entertaining
game and really should have capitalised on their possession.
The first period saw Harriers passing the ball around well and forcing Plymouth back into their own half, but it was some time before they looked like scoring. Dean Bennett, partnering loan striker Colin Larkin, had his shot tipped over by Larrieu and then had a long rrange effort parried by the keeper. Larrieu was in fine form throughout and saved everything that Harriers threw at him, before the interval he also foiled Clarkson and Bird.
On the hour Plymouth had their best chance to open the scoring, Banger was twice clear in front of goal but both times put his effort wide. As the game wore on it became more and more open, Harriers continued to dominate but they lacked a real cutting edge in front of goal. Larrieu saved Plymouth again from Shilton, Williams and Bennett, but Harriers wasted many more chances. The best move of the game on 72 minutes saw Clarkson's pass split the Argyle defence and found Blake unmarked in the penalty area but he shot wide as Larrieu rushed off his line to meet him.
Both teams continued to play attractive attacking football as they sought a breakthrough in an increasingly frenetic finale but neither found it and had to settle for a point each.
