HARRIERS had to make do with a share of the spoils at Guiseley at the Reds were held 0-0 at Guiseley.
Harriers had the greater share of key chances in the game but couldn’t find the back of the net, while the home side’s robust and towering attack were well dealt with throughout.
The visitors had to be on their guard in the opening quarter-hour as they blocked away a number of efforts, Williams up at the other end seeing a shot deflected over.
Goalkeeper Green did well to snatch a Chambers cross on 15 minutes and, just after, easily the best chance of the half for Guiseley saw Thornton plant a header wide.
The 26th minute saw Williams go agonisingly close to an opener and a 12th goal of the season – Taylor’s ball squared to him before Williams stabbed just wide.
Two more big chances came Harriers way in the final minutes of the half – Chambers firing over with an attempted lob on Green before Wiliams, winning the ball out wide, cut wide with his shot on the angle.
Seven after the restart, the lively Bradley was played through on goal by Weeks’ excellently-weighted ball. One-on-one, the former Tamworth man was only able to drag his attempt just wide.
Soon after, Vaughan surged forward and hit a swerving shot that Green got behind and held, before sub Kane Richards slotted wide after battling his way into the area.
Brandon Hall had to wait until eight from time before getting his first real save of the day in – it was one he needed to make, too, as a distance effort from Heaton moved in the air.
In the game’s final moments, Weeks struck over from a free-kick before Hatfield at one end and Richards at the other both sliced shots over the bar.
