Craig Reid
Reid's goal was his first for Harriers in the Conference

Kidderminster extended their unbeaten start to the season to seven games by seeing off Gateshead at Aggborough.

Jamie Grimes and Kevin Nicholson both went close for Harriers before half-time but Craig Reid fired in from close range within 10 seconds of the restart.

And three minutes later Kidderminster doubled their lead when Nathan Blissett headed in from Marvin Johnson's cross.

Jon Shaw's header reduced the deficit but Harriers held on to move above Gateshead into fourth place.
