Lindon Meikle's brace earned Mansfield their first points in the Blue Square Bet Premier against Kidderminster.

Jack Byrne headed in from a Marvin Johnson corner to give Harriers the lead, before Matt Green levelled when Luke Jones's saved shot fell to him.

Johnson's strike deflected in off John Dempster to put the hosts ahead again.

But Meikle made it 2-2 from close range after a Green pass, and then sprung the offside trap, finishing low into the corner to seal all three points.

VIEWS FROM THE TRAINING GROUND

Kidderminster manager Steve Burr told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"There are too many individuals who aren't producing what we know they are capable of doing.

"Yes, we have got one or two new lads in but I know they are not producing what we expect from them.

"Collectively, if you are doing that then you are not going to win matches.

"We just want to get three points because the sooner we get three points and we're up and running the better - the longer it goes on it just makes it harder."
