HARRIERS suffered defeat in the Boxing Day derby against Hereford at Edgar Street.

The visitors racked up a host of chances and should have been ahead by the time the hosts broke the deadlock through a penalty ten minutes from time.

Ashley Chambers went close to an equaliser in the dying minutes, but the Bulls stood firm to leave Harriers empty-handed.

The opening stages were as cagey as you might expect for a derby clash, with each side having sights of goal without seriously testing either shot-stopper; Finn shooting straight at Hall before Horsfall nodded wide from a corner.

The football from Harriers was good. Richards blazed over after a good counter attack before, on 37 minutes, Hall got down low to keep hold of a Lloyd shot.

Just before the break, a stinging shot from Weeks at a free-kick was punched up and over by Yates – just after the restart, Hall needed to save well from Owens-Evans.

Before the hour, Harriers notched three further chances as Bradley forced Yates into a good save, Chamber shot off an Austin pass and Horsfall saw his header deflected from a dangerous free-kick.

For all of the visitors’ chances, it looked in the end that a keenly-contested derby might drift into a goalless finish. With just ten to go, though, the home side were awarded a penalty after Johnson leaned into Symons, Roberts stepping up to beat Hall from twelve yards.

Yet there was still a chance for Harriers to rescue something from a game they should never have been in a position to lose – picking up the pace, a swift move saw Williams thread through to Chambers only for Yates to block well with his legs.

With festive fixtures coming thick and fast, defender Fraser Horsfall knows that Harriers are in for a tough test at Edgar Street on Boxing Day.

Harriers face Hereford on Boxing Day, and and head there following a 1-1 draw against Curzon Ashton on Saturday.

It was a game that Harriers had a number of shots and chances, but it was the Nash that opened the scoring, only for Dan Bradley to equalise with the last kick of the game deep into stoppage time.

Horsfall is looking to take the positives from a frustrating afternoon as Harriers face The Bulls.

"It was a frustrating game because we dominated the full game," admitted Horsfall.

"We ended up getting a point - the lads were a bit gutted but we've got to take the positives

"It could be an important point come the end of the season".

It will be the first competitive meeting between Harriers and Hereford since the phoenix club were formed in 2015, and Horsfall is relishing the challenge.

"I'm really looking forward to it - I know that we will be bringing a lot of fans and it will be a good atmosphere, which is good for the lads when we're playing," said Horsfall.

"I've always said that you can never go off the league table because games against every team in this league is a battle.

"We're going there knowing that we are going to be in for a tough game, but we're going to be ready".

Billy Daniels returned to the matchday squad to take a place on the bench against Curzon Ashton, while captain Jimmy O'Connor wasn't remained out.
