Back From The Dead Harriers Save A Point: Wrexham 2-2 Harriers

Harriers fought back from a disastrous start to save a point at Wrexham and went close to taking all three.

Showing two changes from the team that lost to Mansfield at the weekend - Tom Sharpe in for the injured Marc Albrighton and Lee Morris in for Chris McPhee - Harriers got off to the worst possible start, falling behind to David Brown's looping header after three minutes.

Two minutes later things got worse when former Harrier Dean Keates blasted Wrexham further ahead.  Harriers worked themselves back into the game, however, having a goal disallowed for offside on 15 minutes, and on the stroke of half-time Morris set up Nick Wright to pull a goal back.

Early in the second half the same combination worked again as Morris' pass set up Wright to stroke in the equaliser.  Wrexham fell apart and Harriers looked the most likely to go on and win the game, with the home support turning on manager Dean Saunders.  Harriers had a strong shout for a penalty turned down five minutes from the end and had to settle for a point.
