Kidderminster Harriers 1-1 Woking

Lee Hughes
Lee Hughes was making his first appearance for Kidderminster since 1997

Lee Hughes scored on his comeback for Kidderminster, 18 years after leaving the club, as they ended a run of four straight home defeats against Woking.

Charles Banya struck the post for Woking before Danny Wright played in Hughes, who fired into the corner.

Woking were denied an equaliser when goalkeeper Danny Lewis made a superb save from Joey Jones' header.

They secured a point minutes later, however, when Yemi Odubade stabbed in following Josh Payne's corner.

Veteran striker Hughes left Kidderminster for West Bromwich Albion in 1997 and has returned to the Conference club after leaving Forest Green Rovers.

Woking assistant Steve Thompson told BBC Surrey:

"I thought they were the better team in the first half and deserved their lead and we were definitely better in the second-half so I don't think you can argue with the point today.

"You need to put four wins together to get yourselves a good chance of getting in the play-offs and it doesn't seem any team can do that at the moment. No team can seem to put four wins together but we have to try.

"We need the wins and Yemi Odubade worked hard today and he could've done better just after the goal, but I am pleased he scored. Everyone has got to do that bit but although results haven't been brilliant in January, the performances have been decent."
