Play-Off Dream Still Alive: Harriers 2-1 Fleetwood Town

Harriers came from behind to beat play-off rivals Fleetwood at Aggborough and keep their hopes of making the top five alive.

In front of the TV cameras the two contenders served up a thrilling game both for the neutral and for each set of fans.

Lee Morris and Jack Byrne returned to the starting line-up for Harriers as Steve Burr switched to a more conventional 4-4-2 formation.  Morris' quality shone through from the start but he was well shackled by the Town defence.  As a result it was Fleetwood who took the lead after 39 minutes; Lee Vaughan's clearance going straight to Jamie Mullan who fired in.

After a stiff talking to at the interval Harriers found another gear and stepped up their performance; Byrne levelling the scores after 52 minutes with the help of a deflection.  Four minutes later the same player lifted the roof off Aggborough when he headed Harriers in front.

Harriers had late chances to make the game safe but couldn't take them, even when Fleetwood were reduced to ten men in stoppage time when George Donnelly received his second yellow card.  No matter, though as the win was all important and keeps the season going for a few days longer.
