Sean Flynn to play against Robins
Harriers new signing, Sean Flynn, is expected to make his debut tomorrow in our last friendly before the big kickoff next week at Aggborough against Lincoln City.
Our opponents tomorrow are Cheltenham, our rivals from down the M5, who gained promotion to the 2nd Division last season by beating Rushden & Diamonds in the playoff final at Cardiff.
Ex Coventry, Derby and Albion captain Flynn, who was released from Tranmere Rovers at the end of last season, has signed for us on a 3 month deal and is expected to occupy a midfield berth. Who he replaces will be interesting but he's not the right side full back that we were all hoping for.
Still out for us is Scott Stamps but he should be back to full fitness for the Lincoln game. Adie Smith (side) and Inderpaul Khela (eye injury) are certain non-starters but Sean Parrish (knee), Lee Ayres (hamstring) and Drewe Broughton (knee), who all collected injuries against Worcester are expected to be fit.
Abdou Sall, who was rested for the game at Worcester City last week, should have recovered from an ankle injury while Ian Foster (shins), who missed the game, will be available.
Cheltenhams only injury worry is Chris Banks. He will miss the first month of the season with a knee injury but Damien Spencer and Steve Jones should both come back tomorrow after being out of the Robins previous friendlies with minor injuries.
The one thing this game will be notable for is the return of Graham Allner against his old friend Ian Britton. He first became associated with Graham at AP Leamington and later came to Aggborough to take charge of the Youth side when Graham became manager here.
