Kidderminster Harriers' unbeaten run stretched to three games with a 1-0 win over Dartford, with goalkeeper Danny Lewis keeping a clean sheet for the third game in a row not conceding a goal for 270 minutes.
Kyle Storer netted the only goal of the game minutes before half time but the home side struggled in the second allowing Dartford the better of the play, the introduction of Michael Gash for Nathan Blissett disrupting the shape of the team.
It was an unchanged Harriers side from Tuesday night's 3-0 win against bottom-of-the-league Alfreton Town, with Craig Reid partnering Nathan Blissett up top, against a 'Darts' side that featured former Welsh International and Blackburn Rovers' player Jason Brown who kept the score down in the first half as 'the Reds' had the lion's share of possession and play.
Both Harriers' strikers caused Brown problems early on, Reid was unlucky to have a goal disallowed after twelve minutes as he bundled in an effort at the far post after a Storer effort was saved by Brown whilst Blissett's slick turn in the area was slightly too heavy and allowed the ball to run to Brown before he could pull the trigger. Jack Byrne also went close with an effort that was saved by the outstretched legs of the keeper.
After half a hour we began to sit back a bit and that allowed Dartford to come into the game a bit more without really doing any damage. The only moment of panic coming when the former Cambridge Utd midfielder, Rory MaCauley bundled an effort against the upright and a scramble ensued to try and clear it back upfield.
Four minutes before half-time Harriers got the lead they deserved when Marvin Johnson made a storming run down the left, cut in and played the ball in for Storer to lash in an effort from twenty yards out, leaving Brown stranded.
