Kidderminster Harriers 1-1 Southport

Jack Byrne's second-half goal earned play-off chasers Kidderminster Harriers a draw against relegation-threatened Southport at Aggborough.

Striker Danny Hattersley put John Coleman's visitors ahead, tapping in a John O'Sullivan cross.

Byrne was gifted the equaliser, finding the net after Southport goalkeeper Danny Hurst failed to clear a corner.

David Fitzpatrick went close to winning it for the Sandgrounders, striking the post with a long-range free-kick.

The draw sees Kidderminster drop to eighth in the table, a point behind fifth-placed Grimsby, while Southport are four points above the relegation zone.

Southport manager John Coleman told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"It feels like a defeat to me. We've still got that monkey on our back - we can't win away from home.

"We've controlled the game for long periods. Although they didn't really hurt us, we didn't really hurt them.

"We've been done by an individual error. Danny's a top keeper but he's got to do better with that and he knows it."
