FC Halifax Town failed to continue their run of form, in the Conference Premier as they went down 2-0 at Kidderminster Harriers.
A goal in each half at Aggborough was enough for the home side to see off the Shaymen and climb into the Conference Premier top three.
Michael Gash made space for himself in the corner of the box to drill home a low, right-foot shot on 21 minutes to give the home team the lead.
Joe Lolley then cut in from the right to curl home a stunning 20-yard, left-foot shot for their 57th-minute second.
Halifax went closest when home keeper Nathan Vaughan made a fingertip save to turn away Matty Pearson’s shot.
But the Harriers could have won by more, Anthony Malbon twice going close from distance, while Danny Jackman fired just wide with decent efforts in each half.
Danny Ings claimed another Turf Moor brace to clinch Burnley’s Capital One Cup progress at the expense of Nottingham Forest by 2-1.
The visitors had taken the lead in the all-Championship affair when Matt Derbyshire claimed a typical poacher’s goal.
However, the Clarets always pose a threat with striker Ings in form and he struck in each half to take his tally to nine for the season, and four in this competition, to send Burnley through.
