Highlights: AFC Fylde 4-2 Kidderminster Harriers

Danny Rowe's double helped AFC Fylde into the second round of the FA Cup for the first time in their history as they eased past Kidderminster.

Rowe grabbed his first after 14 minutes before completing a brace early in the second half.

A sensational individual goal from Jonny Smith made it 3-0 and Sam Finley added a fourth before Joel Taylor and Andre Brown grabbed late consolations for the visitors.

National League side Fylde went ahead when Rowe turned past his marker and slotted home from 12 yards, and three minutes into the second half the striker pounced on a loose ball to score from close range.

And just six minutes later Smith dribbled from inside his own half before curling a shot in off a post from just inside the area.

Dave Challinor's side made it 4-0 when Finley rounded off a swift break by slotting into the bottom corner.

But sloppy defending from the hosts allowed National League North side Kidderminster to grab two late consolations.

First Taylor drifted into the area and hammered into the far corner, before Brown fired in from 12 yards in stoppage-time.
