Signing off

What a turnaround. In the circumstances undoubtedly a point gained and it could even have been three. We’ll bring you reports and reaction as soon as we can.

HT Kidderminster Harriers 2 Chester FC 0

Some boos from the Chester fans and understandable after an abject first-half performance.

Routine save

Decent striker from Rooney but too close to the keeper and Snedker holds firm.

Shooting opportunity

Sam Hughes fouled on the edge of the area. John Rooney lines up a free-kick with two minuted to be added on.

Hannah chance

Big chance as a cross drops for Ross Hannah but he screws his shot into the air off the side of his boot.

Snedker saves

Danny O’Brien with a deep cross that Snedker parries from underneath his crossbar

Comfortable save

Whitfield, who has been bright, tests Thompson with a low shot from 25 yards. Easy save for the keeper.

What's changed?

This is a world away from Tuesday night. Blues reverted to banging long, hopeful balls and it’s not working.

All gone wrong

The Blues looked comfortable but four minutes of madness has killed them. Is there a way back?
