Despite not hitting the heights of their performances, Harriers
continued the winning run, recording a comfortable eighth win in
On a poor surface Harriers, with one enforced change of Ducros for Sall, began with purpose and needed just seven minutes to open the scoring. Brock's throw found Laarkin on the right and his pace left United left back Matt Hockley chasing shadows and gave him time to pick out Bo Henriksen at the far post to head in his fifth goal in eight games.
United tried not to be intimidated by their visitors, and had a number of chances to score. Former Harriers trialist Alex Russell twice shot high and wide in the early stages, but the equaliser came in the tenth minute. Russell was fouled outside the penalty area and Jason Fowler took the free-kick which beat the wall and left Stuart Brock unsighted as it rolled past him into the net.
The remainder of the opening half was fairly evenly matched, both sides created chances although Torquay never troubled Brock with theirs while Kevin Dearden was called into action to deny Larkin and Dean Bennett. Harriers were clearly not at their best but it was obvious that they had plenty in reserve if needed. On the stroke of half time they found the killer goal, Henriksen set Appleby clear and he had plenty of time to pick his spot.
After the break Harriers began to control the game. The visitors had the best of the possession but didn't create much in the first part of the half. Twenty minutes in Jan Molby made a triple substitution, Ian Clarkson and Colin Larkin were withdrawn with injuries and replaced by Lee Ayres and Ian Foster and Andy Ducros was swapped for Drewe Broughton. The double switch in attack enlivened Harriers and within five minutes Broughton had set Foster free and he made no mistake with his shot from the edge of the peanalty area.
Foster was very lively when he came on and twice drew saves from Dearden after scoring, and in stoppage time added a fourth Harriers goal firing in from close range from Broughton's knock down. For the second time in three games Harriers equalled their best ever win in the Football League, this was their best ever awy win and it was the first time that they had recorded a double in the League.
