HARRIERS picked up a handsome 4-0 win at Leamington in National League North.

The reds arguably produced the best showing of their season so far, leading 3-0 at the break thanks to goals from Dan Bradley, Dec Weeks, and Ashley Chambers.

Lee Vaughan emphatically added to the scoreline with a fine goal in the second half.

Harriers did dominate the game almost from start to finish, but not before managing a bright start from the hosts that saw Dwyer going close, testing Brandon Hall with an effort that was well saved.

The Reds had half chances through Williams and Daniels, but struck ahead on 18 minutes as brilliant play from Chambers saw him turn his man and shoot in the area - Breeden's save only finding Bradley who tucked away the loose ball. Two minutes later it was 2-0 with an outrageous strike from Weeks, picking up the ball from a throw in and, from fully 25 yards, firing in a thunderous effort off the underside of the bar.

Harriers had control of the game and, while ex-Harrier Clarke twice tried his luck from distance, both efforts were dealt with well before, on the half-hour, an almighty scramble in the area saw Chambers, O'Connor and Weeks all try and finish.

Edwards and Dwyer then struck off target for Leamington before Chambers made it 3-0 on 35 minutes, Chambers set free and firing a deadly effort past a helpless Breeden who had no chance of getting near it.

There was a scare before the break when O'Connor could only direct a clearance on to his own bar at close range, but that was arguably as close as they came - Taylor ensuring the opposite goal was kept ticking over with an effort six after the restart.

The hour came and went and, with it, a fourth goal for the Reds as Vaughan, played in by Williams, thundered in an effort off the bar that had real venom behind it, putting Harriers in an unassailable lead.

There were chances for more goals after the forward line of Chambers and Bradley were replaced by Ironside and Chambers, but the latter struck over when well placed, before Bishop headed into the arms of Hall for the hosts.

It was a clinical night for Harriers who picked up a fine result and a second away clean sheet in the matter of a few days.

Harriers are again on the road on Tuesday as they travel to Leamington in National League North.

The Reds are looking to build on a solid point picked up at Guiseley this past weekend, and will make a shorter journey to the Phillips 66 Community Stadium to face a Brakes side looking to do the same.

Their weekend point was gained in sensational style, too, as they came from two goals and a man down to get a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw against Darlington.

The writing looked to be on the wall for the hosts when Simon Ainge and Harvey Saunders netted before half-time, but a rousing second-half showing netted them a draw thanks to goals from Colby Bishop and Jack Edwards.

Leamington will host Harriers with a real spring in their step, then, so it’s no wonder that boss Neil MacFarlane was readying himself for another tough afternoon at the office.

“We have another difficult game on Tuesday night, but we know it is an important week for us.”  Neil MacFarlane

He knows, though, that his charges have been in good shape themselves and insists they’ll be doing all they can to bring more points back to Aggborough.

“It will be a good game, but this league has been tough,” he said.

“We’ve been in terrific form since the start of the season. We’ve had a couple of knock-backs but, every time, we have responded.

“That is important, that you come back and get a result the following week and we [did that on Saturday] at a very difficult away venue.

“We have another difficult game on Tuesday night, but we know it is an important week for us.”

Harriers will asses Dan Bradley after he picked up a knock in the 0-0 draw at Nethermoor, though it’s hoped he’ll have no issues after managing to initially play through it.
