Report

Ashley Chambers continued his goalscoring exploits against Spennymoor and cancelled out Rob Ramshaw’s excellent opener, as Moors earned a point at Aggborough.

Chambers looped a header over Matt Gould four minutes after Rob Ramshaw finished off a sweeping counter attack to give Moors the lead.

Both sides had half chances in a cagey second period, with a point apiece a fair reflection on the contest overall.

Jason Ainsley made three changes to the side who began the home defeat to Kettering a week previous, with Nathan Buddle, Shane Henry and Andrew Johnson replacing Carl Magnay, Mark Anderson and Ben McKenna.

Despite looking the brighter of the two sides in the game’s early exchanges, Harriers were almost caught cold by Moors and left back Lewis Butroid.

A corner was half cleared and fell to the feet of the Scunthorpe loanee, but his low sliding shot was superbly saved by Will Mannion.

The home side came forward themselves moments later, going close when Ollie Shenton’s header was blocked by the alert Nathan Buddle.

Harriers gained confidence from that spell and saw two penalty appeals turned away in the space of ten seconds, both for alleged hand balls committed by James Curtis.

Jimmy Shan’s side showed greater composure on the ball in the opening half hour but Moors almost took the lead following a wicked corner delivery from Johnson, with Glen Taylor inches away from making a goal worthy connection.

Kidderminster rallied and looked a threat through the lively front three of Ashley Hemmings, Chambers and debutant Austin Samuels, and the former almost caught out Gould with a stinging shot from distance, with the Moors keeper spilling the shot just wide.

Despite looking the side more likely to grab the elusive opening goal, it was Moors who struck the decisive blow on the counter attack. Taylor released James Roberts who in turn flicked cutely into the path of the bombarding Tyler Forbes.

The right back kept his composure and slid a ball across the six year area, allowing Ramshaw, who started the move with a raking cross field pass, to slide in and send the 46 Moors fans into raptures, netting his eight goal to campaign in the process.

But Moors couldn’t hold the lead for long, failing to learn from a warning sign after Taylor cleared off the line from a goal bound Hemmings effort moments after Ramshaw’s goal.

The Harriers scorer was Chambers, an inevitability given his record against Moors in the last few years, looping a header over the advancing Gould after a clever reverse pass from Hemmings.

With the game finely balanced at the interval, both sides lacked the killer punch in a finely poised contest.

Chambers headed over the bar from six yards with nine minutes remaining, with Moors going closest through Taylor’s low drive which was well saved by Mannion.

The result leaves Moors one place outside of the play-off places in eighth, with a home game against Leamington up next.
