Kidderminster Harriers are still without a point this season as they were undone by 10-man Forest Green.

Rovers had Omar Koroma sent off after 34 minutes as a disputed handball decision led to a second yellow card.

Anthony Malbon had two goals ruled out for Harriers, with the second leading to a booking for handball.

And after Harriers had most of the possession, James Norwood applied the sucker-punch, latching onto a long ball and scoring from close range.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Kidderminster assistant manager Gary Whild told BBC Hereford and Worcester:

"You get a result and then you get another one and suddenly things look a bit different.

"There are lads in that dressing room who have been a big part in going 15, 16 or 17 games unbeaten.

"We're not asking them to do anything they can't do and we think they are capable of doing that.

"But at the moment the obvious thing to say is that we're desperate for that first win."

Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Gloucestershire:

"They were magnificent. Whatever was thrown at us, we took it.

"To be honest, 1-0 has flattered them because we had some great chances.

"I said at half-time that we could go and win this game. I told them not to defend.

"I told them to believe because if you believe, then anything is possible."
