Aldershot Town 0-0 Kidderminster Harriers

Kidderminster moved into the play-off places despite only managing a goalless draw against struggling Aldershot.

The Harriers laboured to break through, coming closest when Josh Gowling headed over from an early corner.

The home side also failed to trouble keeper Danny Lewis with clear-cut chances, although Bradley Bubb's shot forced a save before the break.

The second half marginally opened up, with Town sub Jordan Roberts heading wide from close range late on.

Harriers, who climbed three places to fifth, remain unbeaten in their four matches under new manager Gary Whild.

Aldershot Town manager Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

Post-match: Aldershot manager Scott

"Obviously it's a good clean sheet for us and it's another point on the total.

"We created the better chances and Jordan Roberts should have scored with a few minutes left and there the fine margins.

"I think it's a missed opportunity to grab three points but a solid performance and it's another game unbeaten and we make ourselves harder to beat.

"It shows we are doing things right by limiting Kidderminster to very few chances and defensively we looked very strong and solid."
