Match ends, Macclesfield Town 2, Kidderminster Harriers 1.
New Kidderminster boss Dave Hockaday was left under no illusions about the task facing him as Macclesfield handed them a ninth defeat in 16 league games.
Harriers goalkeeper Dean Snedker denied Jack Sampson and Danny Whitehead before Tony Diagne volleyed in the opener following a corner.
And Danny Rowe's low shot into the corner made it 2-0 at half-time.
Kidderminster improved after the break and on-loan debutant Jordan Murphy pulled one back from close range.
They remain winless and bottom of the National League table, while Macclesfield's victory extended their unbeaten run to four matches.
