Ryan Rowe scored twice as Kidderminster moved two points clear of the relegation zone with victory over Hyde.

James Vincent's 25-yard strike from Nathan Blissett's pass put the hosts ahead, before Rowe drilled in from inside the box for 2-0.

The striker netted his second in injury-time, steering the ball into the bottom-left corner from 12 yards.

Kidderminster, who lost their first five matches this season, are now unbeaten in their last nine.

Hyde remain bottom of the Blue Square Bet Premier table and are eight points adrift of safety.
