The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Andy Giblin

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: ★★★★★
