Iron­side has all the an­swers for Harriers

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE NORTH - By Chris Pratt

JOE IRON­SIDE’S sec­ond-half double snatched vic­tory for Kid­der­min­ster Harriers in a turn­around that had looked un­likely at the break.

The Hat­ters oozed con­fi­dence af­ter a rare away win at Nuneaton last time out. A firsthalf cor­ner count of 9-0 high­lighted their dom­i­nance.

County’s best chance came when left back Stephen O’Hal­lo­ran, up for a cor­ner, drilled a goal­bound ef­fort only for it to strike his captain Michael Clarke and bounce to safety. Jamie McQuilkin went close with a header for the vis­i­tors and El­ton Ng­watala should have done bet­ter.

But it was a long clear­ance that did for Harriers just be­fore half-time. Ian Orm­son’s long kick be­ing flicked on for Matty War­bur­ton to roll the ball past Bran­don Hall.

The away side came out af­ter the break a dif­fer­ent side. Sam Austin’s de­flected cross looped up to Iron­side who nipped in front of Orm­son and back­headed into the net.

And it was Iron­side again on 90 min­utes who popped up to side­foot home af­ter a move in­volv­ing Ryan Croas­dale to hand the away side the points. STAR MAN: Fraser Hors­fall (Kid­der­min­ster) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
