Substitute James McQuilkin's late goal gave Kidderminster a share of the points against play-off rivals York.

Nick Wright went close for Harriers, having a shot cleared off the line and seeing another flash over the bar.

Chris Smith gave York the lead by heading in Jon Challinor's cross after being left unmarked in the box.

McQuilkin deservedly put Harriers level late on when his long-range free-kick bounced through the York defence and into the net.

Fellow substitute Anthony Malbon also went close for the hosts but his looping shot was tipped away expertly by Michael Ingham.

Despite failing to claim a win, both Harriers and York move a point further ahead of sixth-placed Gateshead, who were beaten by struggling Kettering.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

York City manager Gary Mills told BBC Radio York:

"It's important we didn't lose here tonight. We didn't set up to just come for a point, we set up to win.

"We didn't play the fluent football we know we can but we showed heart and desire that we don't get beaten.

"If we're not playing how I like my teams to play we have to show that desire to dig in there to come away with at least a point and we've done that.

"Believe me it was a massive point."
