Kidderminster Harriers climbed up to sixth in the Conference Premier table after making hard work of beating bottom club Hyde at Aggborough.
Harriers led inside three minutes when last term's top scorer Anthony Malbon chested down before turning to curl in a stunning 20-yard left-footed effort.
Hyde striker Tom Collins then drilled home from 15 yards to equalise.
But Michael Gash then headed the home side back in front on 34 minutes to complete the scoring.
Steve Burr's side had the majority of the chances, but it still took a point-blank save from home keeper Nathan Vaughan to deny Collins a second-half equaliser.
Vaughan was making his his home debut, having been preferred to last season's number one Danny Lewis for last weekend's 2-1 win at Welling.
