Having taken the lead straight after half time thanks to an outstanding Connor Kirby goal, Buxton had to settle for a draw against visitors Kidderminster Harriers (Tuesday September 27th), whose Spanish winger Yusifu Ceesay, ex-Alfreton Town, equalised in the 68th minute.
It was a tough encounter in front of a crowd of 675, as the Bucks worked hard throughout to get their point against fourth-placed Harriers. Visiting manager Russ Penn said it was one of his team's best performances of the season. The Bucks matched them and boss Jamie Vermiglio said it was as good as his team have been so far.

Jamie added: "We were unlucky not to come away with three points, playing with desire and intensity. The work rate couldn't be faulted. Kidderminster had just one chance in the second half and to their credit they scored.
"The good news is that Tommy Elliott is nearly ready to return and skipper Josh Granite made the bench tonight. Although he didn't play, we felt his presence. With lads coming back, I've got selection decisions to make and that can only be good. At one stage this season we only had 13 fit players to choose from.
"On to the FA Cup on Saturday. We're excited about the trip to Bamber Bridge. They play good football, but we'll be looking to stamp our authority on the game and go into the hat for the next round. I know how important it is for the club and fans."
