Kidderminster Harriers 5 Dartford 1

Dartford suffered a fourth successive league defeat on Saturday as in-form Kidderminster claimed a 5-1 win at the Aggborough Stadium.

The match was the only game to survive the weekend washout in Blue Square Bet Premier, although Tony Burman’s side probably wished it hadn’t as they were leapfrogged in the table by the hosts.

Kiddersminster made the perfect start after just four minutes when Chey Dunkley finished off good work by Kyle Storer, Anthony Malbon and former Gillingham player Josh Gowling.

Jacob Erskine (pictured) headed home Ryan Hayes’ cross from close range to equalise five minutes later, but that was as good as it got for the Darts, who trailed 2-1 at the interval after Jamille Matt’s 32nd-minute effort.

Harriers keeper Danny Lewis was more than a match for Hayes’ driven effort after the break, before Dartford stopper Marcus Bettinelli was beaten by Matt for a second time with 21 minutes left.

Substitute Mike Williams secured the points in the 76th minute before Lee Vaughan made it 5-1 in the final minute. The result dropped the Darts to sixth in the table ahead of the Boxing Day clash at home to Ebbsfleet.
