Braintree Town 2-0 Kidderminster

Braintree's Kenny Davis scored before being sent off as he helped his side beat Kidderminster at Cressing Road.

The midfielder headed in Dan Sparkes's cross just after the break for his fifth goal of the season but was then shown red for a second booking.

Earlier, James Mulley had put the Iron in front in fortunate circumstances as his cross drifted into the top corner.

Harriers' Ahmed Obeng and Craig Reid both hit the bar and Jack Byrne was denied by a fine save by Nick Hamann.
