KHIST tame The Ox’s


The KHIST supporters team maintained their unbeaten home record at a cold Lea Castle on saturday morning. For once the oppostion didn’t get lost on the Kidderminster ring road and the game kicked off on time.
Oxford took a deserved lead as the Harriers defence took time to thaw out but David Greaves (the fox) levelled before half time. Straight after half time Harriers conceded again and were dealt a further blow when our very experienced left back Wayne Allen pulled his hamstring. Harriers fought their way back into the game with goals from Dave Pountney and David Greaves only for the first of many dubious refereeing decisions of the day to allow Oxford to equalise from the penalty spot. It was left to Liam Ifill to score in the third consecutive game to hand the Harriers victory.
It was a good performance by the Harriers against a side we met many times in our football league days. Harriers were missing four key players but still managed a squad of 15 and in the end this was the difference between the two sides.
Oxford will be looking for revenge when the two sides meet again at Oxford on the 29th December
