Harriers Six-Shooters Slaughter Lambs: Harriers 6-0 Tamworth
Harriers gave a totally dominant performance to blow away in-form Tamworth under the lights at Aggborough.
The Lambs came into the game on the back of consecutive away wins that had seen them score five goals in each but they were no match for an unchanged Harriers side.
Harriers needed just 13 minutes to take the lead; Tyrell Waite got away on the right and crossed to the near post where Mani Dieseruvwe was on hand to head in his fourth goal of the season. The advantage was doubled eleven minutes later when Zaine Francis-Angol played the ball in from the left for Arthur Gnahoua who skipped his way into the penalty area and fired past James Belshaw - his fifth strike of the season.
Tamworth were unable to keep up with the pace of Harriers' attacking play, and struggled to get the ball off them also. Late in the half Tyrone Williams and Waite combined on the right with the latter playing in James McQuilkin but his shot hit Belshaw; McQuilkin didn't have long to wait, though, before getting on the scoresheet, firing in a low shot after The Lambs failed to clear Gnahoua's cross.
Elton Ngwatala went close to increasing the lead in the first minute of the second half bt fired wide after good work by McQuilkin and Gnahoua on the left. The fourth goal came on the hour; a long crossfield pass found McQuilkin on the left wing, he headed inside to Waite who cut into the penalty area before firing past Belshaw.
Harriers continued to pile on the pressure and with fifteen minutes remaining could have added to their lead further; Dieseruvwe's shot was parried by Belshaw and then Liam Truslove's follow-up was blocked by Jack Lane. Shortly afterwards Truslove's pass split the defence wide open for Waite who shot narrowly wide of the post.
Eight minutes from the end Ryan Croasdale's pass found Sam Austin on the right; his first touch was poor but still allowed him to cut inside the full back before shooting inside the far post to make it 5-0. Two minutes later the scoring was completed when Truslove netted his second goal of the season with a angled shot.
In the last minute Harriers could have increased their lead further when a good passing move set up Andre Brown but he shot just wide.
