Kidderminster Harriers 2-1 Hereford United

Danny Jackman

First-half goals from Michael Gash and Danny Jackman saw Kidderminster edge their local derby against Hereford United at Aggborough.

Gash put Harriers ahead within nine minutes, direct from a free-kick.

Jackman then rounded off a fine move by the hosts when he volleyed in with his left foot from inside the box.

Josh O'Keefe reduced the deficit from close range following a goalmouth scramble but Harriers held on to end a run of three straight league defeats.

O'Keefe went close to levelling for the Bulls when he fired wide from inside the area late on.

Harriers centre-half Josh Gowling was out suspended, after accumulating five yellow cards this season, but he is in line to return for Saturday's meeting of second v fifth against Luton Town at Kenilworth Road.
