Harriers made it back to back wins as they beat Hyde 2- 1 at Aggborough on Saturday thanks to first half goals from Anthony Malbon and Michael Gash.

To say there was a dream start to this one would be an understatement but there were barely two minutes on the clock when the hosts broke the deadlock; kamikaze defending from the visitors on the edge of the area punished with aplomb by Anthony Malbon who stole the ball, beat his man and bent an effort past David Carnell and into the top corner for his second goal of the season.

The response from the visitors was good, though, and by the quarter-hour mark they had levelled matters courtesy of Tom Collins as he fired an effort from just outside the area that swirled to deceive Vaughan and find the back of the net.

The two sides then traded blows and the visitors tightened back up to frustrate Harriers well but after 33 minutes it was 2-1 to Steve Burr's men, a wonderful free-kick delivery saw the ball lofted from the half way point into the area where Michael Gash, ten yards from goal, rose to plant it into the far corner on the angle.

Carnell was in splendid form at the end of the first half to deny Harriers with a double save to deny both Malbon and Danny Jackman but up at the other end it was Vaughan who was on his toes to keep out Collins' first-time volley after a pacey attack from the visitors. 

Gash and Chey Dunkley took aim with further attempts for Harriers while Connor Hughes also tried his luck for the visitors but in truth none of the efforts troubled their respective targets, Storer at least a fair way closer with 13 minutes gone as he lashed one wide of Carnell's goal after being set up by Malbon.
