McPhee Keeps Harriers Heading To Play-Offs: Luton Town 1-1 Harriers

Chris McPhee marked his 100th appearance in a Harriers shirt with his fifteenth goal of the season, earning Harriers their first ever point against Luton.

An absorbing, often tense, match between two of the Conference's in-form teams saw The Hatters take the lead through former Harrier Matt Barnes-Homer before Harriers' never-say-die attitude saw them come back to take a share of the points.

The early stages of the game were even, the home team probably just about edging the possession; chances were missed at both ends before a lucky bounce put Barnes-Homer in position to score from a narrow angle, although there was confusion for a short while until the officials decided to let the goal stand.

Harriers came out stronger in the early stages of the second half and drew level on 52 minutes, McPhee getting up at the far post to head in Callum Gittings' free-kick.  Luton pressed forward and Harriers had to absorb a lot of pressure once again, but Town didn't really look like scoring again and Harriers were able to deal with it and hold out to take a point.
