FA Cup - First Round

Kidderminster Harriers 4-1 Sutton United

Kidderminster had to come from behind to avoid an FA Cup first-round upset against Conference South Sutton.

Charlie Clough had the visitors in front after 10 minutes, heading in Sam Rents' corner.

But the lead lasted three minutes - Amari Morgan-Smith finishing after a Michael Gash shot was blocked.

Gash then fed Callum Gittings for Harriers to take the lead and second-half strikes from Joe Lolley and Anthony Malbon put them through.

Kidderminster named Aaron Brown on their bench, after the former Tamworth and Aldershot defender, 30, penned a short-term deal with the club.
