A Drewe Broughton goal wasn't enough to see the Harriers through to the next round of the LDV Vans Trophy in a game played in freezing conditions in front of a sparse 1,541 attendance.
Ian Britton opted for a 4-5-1 formation with just our scorer up front. Bo Henriksen was missing due to suspension and, surprisingly, loan signing Andrew Bishop started the game on the bench along with Dean Bennett
. There was a return to Harriers colours for John 'JJ' Melligan.
The Harriers started the game as they had in recent weeks by giving their opponents a two goal lead. The first goal came with just five minutes on the clock when the Bees skipper, Scott Marshall, scrambled the ball home from a cross from Kevin O'Connor. It appeared to many that the ball had taken a deflection from the un-witting Danny Williams.
Twenty minutes later and the second goal had gone in.
A through ball from Fullarton was played into the path of O'Connor, he held off a weak challenge from Lee Ayres and sent an un-stoppable shot high into the back of the net.
The only two attempts of note from the Harriers in the opening half came from Danny Williams who saw his shot in the 28th minute saved by Paul Smith, and Drewe Broughton, who had a brief spell at Brentford four years ago, was denied by a last ditch tackle by Sonko as he aimed to shoot.
As the half came to an end Stuart Brock was called into action twice in succession when he saved well from Evans and Sonko.
