The Harriers moved slightly closer to the play off places tonight with this brilliant win over second placed Cambridge Utd. Two superb second half goals from Amari'i Bell (his first for the club) and Michael Gash (against his old team mates) gave us the points that now leaves us five points outside the play off zone with three games left to play.
The win also sends Luton Town up as Champions and full marks have to be given to them after proving week in week out that they are far too good for non league football. Ironically more results like this one tonight and we could be joining them.
A couple of changes to the team that beat Welling on Saturday saw Nick Wright and Adrian Cieslewicz dropping to the bench with Callum Gittings and Nathan Blissett starting in their place. From the off we went at the Cambridge throat and passed the ball round slickly enough although our crossing still needs a bit of work. Our main threat was coming from Lee Vaughan who was being given acres of space to work in but his final ball was never quite good enough for Gash or Blissett to reach.
Cambridge were struggling to get into the game but when they did they counter attacked dangerously with Delano Sam-Yorke their most likely to score for them. His volley from a Luke Chadwick pass bought out a fine save from the Harriers keeper, Danny Lewis. Lewis made another good block later on when he pushed Ryan Donaldsons shot away.
For us Nathan Blissett was looking the player most likely to and his shot towards the end of the half bought out a good save from the United keeper, Will Norris. Both teams went into the break all square and all to play for.
