A goal in the last ten minutes gained Harriers all three points against Curzon Ashton.
Ryan Croasdale opened the scoring just after half time, but Jonothan Hunt levelled 19 minutes from the end. George Waring then put Harriers back in front with ten to play, sealing Harriers the three points.
The first chance of the game fell to the home side after just two minutes. Baillie crossed into the box – Regan connected firmly, but his header cannoned off the bar and away.
Harriers’ first real chance on the night fell to James McQuilkin. The midfielder stood over a well placed free kick 20 yards from goal and let fly, beating the wall, but not Curzon ‘keeper Mason.
An intense ten seconds followed after 25 minutes – McQuilkin involved once more to strike against the woodwork. The play was then recycled to Vaughan who crossed fantastically to Ironside who met the cross with his head, but Mason somehow manages to claw the ball away.
Heading into half time, the game was tight with little to pick between the two sides. However, Harriers started the second half brightly, culminating in the opening goal of the night after 50 minutes. Sonupé raced down the right and squared for Croasdale who’s shot was saved, but the Harriers skipper made no mistake on the rebound.
The home side levelled 21 minutes later through their captain, Jonothan Hunt. Dwyer’s cross from the right was dangerous and found the head of his skipper, nodding past Hall from six yards.
Harriers then pushed to get back ahead and came close through Ngwatala who headed just wide from a McQuilkin cross..
The pressure then paid dividends for the away side as Bradley played an inventive, perfectly timed pass through the defence to Waring, who took it around Mason and tapped into the empty net, ensuring all three points would be returning to Worcestershire.
