Stylish Harriers Cruise Past Poppies: Harriers 4-1 Kettering Town

Harriers' best win since February 2010 saw them brush aside the challenge of a poor Kettering side and keep in touch with the play-offs.

Only goal difference is currently keeping Harriers out of the top five, and that was improve considerably with this win, the first time winning by three goals since beating Histon 3-0 last season and the first time scoring four since beating Grays 4-1 last January.

Thanks to 'flu and suspensions the win was the more impressive as Steve burr only had 15 players available to choose from him and was not able to even name a full complement of substitutes.  Lee Morris got the home team off to a great start firing in the opener after just ten minutes.  Harriers dominated the game but wasted a string of chances to have wrapped the game up before the break.

Matt Blair doubled the advantage five minutes after the break to give Harriers some breathing space, which was needed as Brett Solkhon pulled one back just nine minutes later.  Harriers found another gear, though, and scored further goals through Keith Briggs on 66 minutes and Callum Gittings in stoppage time.
