We were forced into make two changes at half time when Dean Bennett and Sean Parrish replaced Danny Williams and Craig Hinton. Craig had taken a slight bang to his ankle but Danny's injury was more serious. He had cracked ribs and will certainly miss the next three or four games.
The Reds almost extended the lead through Dean Bennett within 60 seconds of the restart. He cut in from the right and fired a low drive at Freestone. The keeper just managed to block it with his feet.
Minutes later we had extended the lead.
Sam Shilton delivered an inswinging corner to the front post, Henriksen, Broughton and Andy Mumford, a Swansea defender, all went for it, but it appeared that it was the Swansea player who had the final touch to divert it into his own net. Although Bo seemed to be claiming it as his goal the honour seemed to be all Mumfords.
Brian Flynn, the Swansea manager, sent on Williams and Phillips in place of Cash and Mumford in an effort to save face but it was too late. Six minutes later Harriers added a third goal.
At last Drewe Broughton
got the goal he has deserved all season when he had the easy task of heading the ball into the back of an empty net from just two yards out. Melligan, again, was the tormentor of Swanseas defence delivering a quality cross from the right for Drewe to finish with ease.
In all this we mustn't forget that Stuart Brock was playing too and it was on the hour that he was called into action for the only time of the night. It wasn't much action though. Just to push away a cross cum shot from the ex Blackburn striker James Thomas that was never going to do much damage anyway.
Two minutes later Melligan made it four with a quality goal to cap a stunning individual performance. He picked the ball up 10yds outside the box, before bursting forward past three defenders and delivering a fierce drive across Freestone and into the far corner for his sixth goal for the Harriers.
We took our foot off the pedal after that as the Swansea fans streamed out of the ground. Those that remained joined in the Harriers fans Brazilian cheers as the team played keep ball around a bewildered and shell shocked dejected Swansea team.
With Torquay beating Bournemouth by the same scoreline, this Saturday's game at Plainmoor looks the be a promotion six pointer. It could be one hell of a game!
