Kidderminster Harriers 1-0 Woking

Kidderminster moved off the bottom of the National League as Jordan Murphy's late goal saw off Woking to secure their first win of the season.

The result meant Dave Hockaday also claimed his first win as Harriers boss.

Matthew Barnes-Homer, who has returned to Aggborough on loan from Aldershot, fired over early on before setting up Murphy, who missed the chance.

But Murphy found the net with three minutes remaining when he headed in from substitute Matt Young's cross.

Woking boss Garry Hill told BBC Surrey:

Hill on Kidderminster v Woking

"We didn't play badly today, and I think we were in control in the first half and we looked a lot more solid and compact. There was a lot more commitment and rightly so.

"It had 0-0 written all over it and all of a sudden they attacked down the right-hand side and the ball comes into the box and it was frustrating to concede.

"I think the players did the supporters a lot of credit. We're in a rut and we've got to dig deep. The club and I need a result as soon as possible."
