Kidderminster Harriers struck a goal in each half at Aggborough to see off Halifax Town and climb to third in the Conference Premier.

Michael Gash made space for himself in the corner of the box to drill home a low, right-foot shot on 21 minutes.

Joe Lolley then cut in from the right to curl home a stunning 20-yard, left-foot shot for their 57th-minute second.

Halifax went closest when home keeper Nathan Vaughan made a fingertip save to turn away Matty Pearson's shot.

But the Harriers could have won by more, Anthony Malbon twice going close from distance, while Danny Jackman fired just wide with decent efforts in each half.
