A Callum Gittings strike after only 45 seconds helped Kidderminster Harriers secure victory over Macclesfield.

Harriers came into the match having won just once since mid-January but they made the perfect start when Gittings flicked the ball up and volleyed in from 25 yards.

They had to wait until the 39th minute to double their lead with Amari Morgan-Smith finding the bottom corner.

Danny Whitaker reduced the deficit when he converted Scott Boden's cross.
