Kidderminster Harriers 1-3 Eastleigh

Jack Midson
Jack Midson has scored 10 times for Eastleigh this season

Eastleigh struck three goals in the space of 11 second-half minutes as they eased to a victory over Kidderminster.

Harriers drew first blood as Eastleigh's Joe Partington nodded Craig Reid's cross into his own net.

But the visitors drew level when Dan Walker bundled in from close range and went in front when Jack Midson scored direct from a free-kick.

The Spitfires secured the points with another free-kick, this time Jai Reason finding the bottom right corner.

The Hampshire club are now just two points adrift of the play-off places with two games in hand on Forest Green, who are immediately above them in fifth.

A seventh game without a win for Kidderminster leaves them in 10th spot.
