Dartford 1-0 Kidderminster

Kidderminster's losing start to the season continued as they lost at promoted Dartford.

The Darts had also lost their first three matches of the season but scored the game's only goal when Lee Burns thumped home from Ryan Hayes' corner.

Nathan Blissett came close to levelling for the visitors but his header was well saved by Marcus Bettinelli.

The scoreline could have been worse for Harriers but for two good saves from keeper Daniel Lewis.


Dartford manager Tony Burman told BBC Radio Kent:

Win only a matter of time - Burman

"It's good to get off the mark but it was only a matter of time.

"We played better in the three games we had but today we got the three points.

"We're working with 16 to 18 players and if we need to make changes we may do. You're in a squad and we stick together.

"Sometimes you have to get people a bit angry, they [Danny Harris and Ryan Hayes] were upset they were left out, but they took it the right way."

Kidderminster manager Steve Burr told BBC Hereford & Worcester:

"It was another difficult afternoon and sometimes our decision making today was again not what I would like.

"We're not functioning as a team at the minute and there's no getting away from that so this was a disappointing defeat.

"You can make excuses but we need to start winning and getting some points and it's a very poor start from our point of view.

"Collectively, as a team we are not producing at the moment."
