Malcolm Arnold Academy, Northampton was the Venue for the match between AFC Rushden & Diamonds and Kidderminster.
Quarter 1 started with Kidderminster on the front foot and taking a deserved lead through Jordan Crump. As the Quarter played out, AFC Rushden & Diamonds equalised through Thomas Curry.
The physical strength of Kidderminster paid off in Quarter 2 - with Kidderminster adding further goals from Jack Male and Samuel Downs. Kidderminster good value for the 3-1 lead at the mid-point.
Quarter 3 followed a similar pattern with the Kidderminster strength paying dividends as they added a fourth from Brook Williams. Indeed it was Brook Williams who concluded the scoring later in the 3rd Quarter with his second and a 5th for Kidderminster.
Quarter 4 was far more even - AFC Rushden & Diamonds rolled their sleeves up and gave everything to ensure the score was not added to further - infact they had a coupleof half chances to reduce the deficit.
On the whole - Kidderminster quite rightly took the 3 points - but the AFC Rushden & Diamonds players can take positives from their work rate and commitment to the cause given no available substitutes - the 11 players on display work tirelessly against very good opposition.
