Harriers Crash Back Down To Earth: Bath City 2-0 Harriers
A disappointing performance from Harriers after the euphoria of beating Wimbledon at the weekend saw their unbeaten run unceremoniously ended by lowly Bath.
Unchanged from the side that beat Wimbledon Harriers were sluggish from the start and never reached the heights of their previous performance.
City took the lead after 15 minutes, Kaid Mohamed scoring from the penalty spot after Ollie Thorne had fouled Marley Watkins. On the stroke of half-time the home team doubled their advantage, former Harriers trialist Alex Russell slotting home after a fortunate rebound fell at his feet.
Harriers created few opportunities but did manage to hit the crossbar twice, Dave Hankin and Keith Briggs going close to scoring.
Victory lifted City out of the relegation zone and left Harriers anchored in mid-table and facing a tough test to get their next unbeaten run underway with a trip to high-flying Crawley at the weekend.
