|Match Report by St@tto|
Harriers made hard work for themselves again, falling two goals behind
before staging a stirring comeback to save the game inspired by new
loan signing Andy Bishop.
After recent poor first half performances Harriers started the game brightly and had the best of the opening exchanges. After 16 minutes Dean Bennett split the home defence open and put Bo Henriksen through but the Dane fired his shot narrowly wide of the far post, although Arjan van Heusden must have got his fingertips to it as Harriers were awarded a corner. A few minutes later and Torquay took the lead against the run of play, the Harriers defence was opened up by a precise pass that set up Alex Russell, he was forced wide by Lee Ayres but still managed to get a shot in which deflected first off Ayres and then off Kenny Coleman and into the net.
Harriers tried to ignore this set back and continued to try and play their normal game but were dealt a killer blow after 31 minutes when Martin Gritton doubled the advantage. A deep cross from the right by Tony Bedeau found top scorer David Graham lurking beyond the far post, his shot was saved by Stuart Brock but Gritton was following up to fire in the loose ball. It could have been worse five minutes later when Gritton had the ball i the net again but was offside.
Torquay made a crucial change at the break replacing van Heusden with former Harriers trialist Jamie Attwell. The new keeper looked very shaky and it seemed just a matter of time before Harriers, fresh from their half-time roasting, would be back in the game. Andy Bishop came on to make his debut in athree man Harriers front line and was soon in the action chasing and harrying the home defence and it was he who set up Harriers' first. He picked up the ball in the inside left channel and hit a stinging drive that Attwell could only parry downwards and Henriksen was quickest to react to turn in the rebound.
Twelve minutes later the youngster had completed the dream debut by netting the equaliser, hurling himself at Adie Smith's cross to head powerfully past the hapless keeper.
After 78 minutes Torquay again had a goal disallowed for offside, this time it was Bedeau who was the culprit. In the end Harriers appeared to settle for the point that they had gained, switching to a 4-4-2 formation but in stoppage time had to thank Brock for first turning Jason Fowlers forceful volley rounf the post and then from the resulting corner saving Woozley's header.
