Blyth, after falling behind, upped their game and started to take control with JJ O’Donnell shooting over the bar.

Corey McKeown also went close with a curling effort, but they drew level on the half hour mark when Deverdics whipped in a corner and Lees raised highest to get on the end of it.

In the second half Kidderminster got more into the game, but the Spartans’ defence kept them at bay and their only efforts on goal were from distance. In the 82nd minute, Kidderminster’s goalkeeper Luke Simpson was sent off for handling the ball outside the box and Mark Carrington was forced to don the gloves as the visitors had used all their substitutions.
