A James Dance brace in the first half saw Harriers pick up their second away win of the season on Saturday as they won 2-1 at Welling.

Harriers made an ideal start to this one by scoring after just ten minutes - their tenth goal of the season from their ninth different scorer as winger James Dance netted his first goal for the club, picking up a ball from Anthony Malbon inside the area before curling it into the top of the net on the angle, leaving the goalkeeper no chance.

Indeed there were plenty of chances early on - just minutes later Alex Dyer almost levelled for the hosts but fired wide, so too Malbon who drove past the target after some great attacking work in the area from the visitors.

Harriers moved forward with a real purpose and were awarded with a second after 25 minutes, the ball threaded out to Vaughan to raced away before crossing deep for Dance who was on target at the near post to nod home his second.

Through Josh Gowling's header and Malbon's shot Harriers had further chances before the break, Chey Dunkley close to nodding Kyle Storer's free-kick home just a few minutes after the re-start.

Further chances came after the hour, Lafayette somehow blazing over the bar from just a few yards for the home side before Fowler almost netted with a speculative 40-yard effort that Butcher did well to gather.

Goalkeeper Vaughan, on his first start of the season, was beaten with just over ten minutes left as Loui Fazakerley powered home into the bottom corner with the hosts' first meaningful effort on target of the afternoon - a late goal wasn't enough to prevent a narrow but deserved win for Harriers.
