Kidderminster Harriers 2-2 Braintree Town

Two goals in five minutes from Amari Morgan-Smith denied Braintree a win in their first game since 11 January.

After a goalless first half, the visitors took the lead through Matt Paine, who slammed home after a corner.

They doubled their lead when substitute Dan Holman finished at the near post after great work by Bernard Mensah.

However two accurate finishes from substitute Morgan-Smith drew Kidderminster level before Josh Gowling hit the bar late on for the Harriers.
