Match Report by St@tto
Harriers crashed out of the FA Cup again after a disappointing game at Nene Park which saw them give themselves an uphill task by going two goals behind again.
For the first half hour or so Harriers gave one of their best first half performances in recent weeks and were comfortably in control of the game until the home side took the lead against the run of play.
By this time, however, Harriers should have been ahead after creating a number of good chances.  After just seven minutes Bo Henriksen pounced on a miscued clearance by Billy Turley and managed to get the ball round the keeper and squared it for Drewe Broughton.  Just six yards out and with the goal at his mercy he shot high and wide.  Shortly afterwards Broughton and Adie Smith got in each other's way when both going for a Sam Shilton cross and steered the ball harmlessly wide.
It was not all one-way traffic, however, Robert Duffy twice hit powerful drives across the face of Stuart Brock's goal that none of his team-mates could get on the end of.  Turley ws in unusually good form and saved from Dean Bennett and Drewe Broughton to keep the score goalless before Rushden took the lead, somewhat against the run of play, when Duffy was allowed too much space at the far post to head in Paul Underwood's left wing cross.  In the last minute of the half Turley pulled of the save of the game to turn away Henriksen's overhead kick.
Harriers had another scare early in the second half, Paul Hall took the ball round Brock only for Lee Ayres to clear his shot off the line, Onandi Lowe hit the follow-up shot against the crossbar and then David Bell shot wide.  After dominating the early stages of the game, Harriers seemed totally devoid of ideas in the second half and it was not really a surprise when Rushden went further ahead after 66 minutes.  Marcus Bignot threaded a pass into the path of Stuart Wardley who slotted it past Brock.
Harriers didn't look capable of staging the needed comeback now, in fact one goal looked beyond them, but did manage to find the net with 18 minutes remaining.  A deep cross from Kenny Coleman found the head of Broughton who powered the ball past Turley.  The Reds stepped up the pressure after the boost of the goal but only once called Turley into action to save from Henriksen while at the other end the home team were wasting chance after chance and with seven minutes left Lowe headed another easy chance over the bar that would have finished the game off completely but even at 2-1 it was a deserved win for Rushden.
