SUPER HINE OH SO FINE AS AMMIES SINK KIDDY
THREE well-taken second-half goals gave Salford City victory over promotion rivals Kidderminster Harriers.
Salford started well, with James Poole sliding an effort wide and Michael Nottingham having a strike ruled out for offside.
Kidderminster quickly found their own attacking feet though and Mani Dieseruvwe almost got a decisive touch on James McQuilkin’s free-kick.
Salford stepped up their performance after the interval and Harriers keeper Alex Palmer was forced to tip away Simon Grand’s header.
Salford went ahead on 65 minutes. Michael Phenix started the move by controlling Patrick Brough’s chipped pass down the left.
A great cross to the far post followed and Josh Hine netted with a bullet header.
Kidderminster played good football but made little attacking impact and the home side extended their lead with 11 minutes left.
Substitute Jordan Hulme marked his 100th Salford appearance with a goal as he jinked his way into the area before netting with a low shot.
Home keeper Jay Lynch made a lastminute save and when the ball was cleared, Hine found himself in acres of space.
A brisk run and clinical finish completed the afternoon’s action. STAR MAN: Scott Burton (Salford City) ENTERTAINMENT: ★★★★★
