Kidderminster 1-0 Rushden & D'mnds

Chris McPhee's penalty was enough for Kidderminster to close the gap on Rushden & Diamonds to three points and move up to eighth in the table.

McPhee gave Harriers an early lead from the spot after Dave Hankin was tripped by Michael Corcoran in the area.

Rene Howe went close to equalising for the visitors soon after but Daniel Lewis tipped his effort over the bar.

Lewwis Spence had Rushden's best chance after the break but his 20-yard strike cannoned back off Harriers' crossbar.

Rushden manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Northampton:

"I think we're not being ruthless enough in the final third. We've switched off and been punished for it, unfortunately.

"The first-half performance was very, very good but we were a little bit anxious in the second half and lacked a bit of quality.

"But on another day we could possibly have won 4-1 or 5-1."
