Kidderminster continued their good start to the season with a comfortable victory over winless Chester.

Josh Gowling put Harriers in front with a thumping header from Kyle Storer's corner before Marvin Johnson's cool finish from 12 yards doubled the lead.

Chester pulled one back in first-half injury time as Danny Harrison nodded in from Lewis Turner's cross.

Chances were limited after the break before Joe Lolley scored his first senior goal with a fine left-foot shot.
