Linnets to host Kidderminster in play-off semi-final at Walks

King’s Lynn Town will host Kidderminster Harriers in Sunday’s play-off semi-final at The Walks.

Kidderminster came through their quarter-final clash at Alfreton with a 1-0 victory this evening.

Amari Morgan-Smith scored the only goal of the tie at the Impact Arena with less than a minute on the clock.

Kidderminster finished the regulation season sixth in the National League North standings.

They recorded successive wins – one of which came at eventual champions AFC Fylde – during a nine-match unbeaten run at the end of the campaign.

Their last defeat came in early March with a 2-0 reverse at Chester.

Lynn defeated Harriers 3-0 at The Walks before sharing the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Aggborough Stadium later in the season.

Sunday’s huge meeting at The Walks has a 12.30pm kick-off.
