Kidderminster Harriers 1-1 Wrexham

Connor Jennings' equaliser was not enough to end Wrexham's winless run
Connor Jennings' equaliser was not enough to end Wrexham's winless run

Aman Verma's superb 30-yard strike put Kidderminster Harriers into the lead after two minutes, but they were unable to hold on against struggling Wrexham.

The visitors equalised midway through the second half when Connor Jennings' fierce first-time shot beat Danny Lewis at his near post.

Matt Robinson nearly restored Harriers' lead but his shot cracked off the post.

Wes York almost ended Wrexham's winless run, which is now nine games, but could not reach Nick Rushton's cross.

Wrexham manager Kevin Wilkin told BBC Radio Wales:

"Overall I'm happy with a point, Kidderminster is never an easy place to come - the surface is not fantastic.

"We maybe rode our luck a couple of times in the first half, and we fell behind to what was a fantastic strike in the opening couple of minutes and it rocks you back massively.

"But the character the players have showed to stay in the game... we regrouped at half-time and I thought we came out in the second half and gave a whole lot better account of ourselves."
