Kidderminster kept their slim play-off hopes alive with victory over Welling.

A series of fine saves from visiting keeper Lee Butcher kept out Michael Gash, Adrian Cieslewicz and Nick Wright early on.

Butcher then kept out substitute Amari Morgan-Smith's penalty before Gash finally beat him when he tucked in Jack Byrne's cross.

Nathan Blissett powerfully headed in Callum Gittings' cross to secure all three points for the home side.

Harriers sit six points behind fifth-placed Halifax with four matches remaining while Welling sit in 17th.
