High-Flyers Brushed Aside: Wimbledon 1-2 Harriers

A superb performance by Harriers saw them cruise past high-flying Wimbledon to record their first double of the season.

With results elsewhere going in their favour, Harriers strengthened their position in the play-off places going into a two-week lay-off.  The gap back to Fleetwood Town now stands at five points, so Harriers should still be in the last play-off spot next weekend when they are without a fixture due to Darlington's ongoing participation in the FA Trophy.

Steve Burr changed the team around with Lee Vaughan returning at the back and Sean Canham and Nick Wright coming back into the side in attack.  the changes almost paid off early on with Wright going close on a number of occasions; he then turned provider for Canham to open the scoring 3 minutes before the break.

Harriers continued to be the better team after the interval, standing firm to the rare Wimbledon attacks and eventually doubling the lead on 73 minutes through substitute Jamille Matt.  Wimbledon did pull a goal back though Lee Minshull eight minutes from time but never looked like getting anything out of the game.
