The Harriers achieved their second win on the road today and jumped up to sixth place in the table with this somewhat fortuitous win at Cambridge Utd. Two goals from Steve Guinan against the run of play gave us all three points to add in to the three we gained at Lincoln on Tuesday. It also gave us yet another win at Cambridge and they must now be hating the sight of us.
Steve Burr elected to go with the same names on the team sheet as the two previous games and it's obvious this policy of not changing the side too much in this early part of the season is reaping the rewards.
Following a scrappy start the hosts steadily began to control the game and at one stage they were launching attack after attack on Danny Lewis' goal but thankfully the keeper was on top notch form and kept them at bay. It still took them twenty minutes to get their first shot in on goal though and that came from the boot of Rory McAuley but Danny somehow managed to tip it over the bar.
McAuley almost scored at the other end minutes later when he somehow contrived to deflect Callum Gittings ball into the box towards his own net but luckily for him it went just wide. Back up the other end Danny Lewis produced a brilliant save when he pushed away Adam Marriott's goalbound powerful shot and a minute later did the same with an Ashley Carew free kick.
With the first half starting to come to an end the Harriers somehow took the lead against the run of play and didn't just take the lead but increased it too.
The first goal came following good work from Marc Williams whos deft pass picked out Kyle Storer on the edge of the area. He in turn played the ball further in to Guinan who made no mistake from a few feet out to put the ball into the net.
The Harriers travelling army had hardly finished celebrating when the veteran striker doubled the scoreline with a neat header at the far post from Gittings well flighted corner.
