harriers-online match preview
21st february 2003 
Boston Utd
At York St
22/2/03 3:00pm
What can you say?  After that storming win at Exeter on Tuesday and on the back of great results against Torquay, Carlisle and Bournemouth we seem to be flavour of the month.  In Kiddy at least.

The only problem with this game will be trying to avoid the banana skin because we are now one of the teams to beat and Boston will be going all out to beat us.

Their own results have been improving lately with points off Exeter, Scunthorpe, Bristol Rovers and Bury.  They should have got at least one point at Bournemouth but they rolled over to let them rightfully win the game with two late goals.  Bournemouth manager, Sean O' Driscoll later said "Why didn't Kiddy let us do that."

They are now starting to climb the safety ladder and on current form should survive.  They could have been higher if they had played, and beaten, Wrexham on Tuesday but it was a victim of the icy conditions.

They've just signed defender Stuart Balmer from Oldham after he had spent the past two months on loan at York St and have also bought in Richard Logan from Ipswich and Liam George from Bury on a non contract basis.

Out injured will be Neil Redfearn (calf), Nick Conroy (broken fingers), Lee Thompson (cartilage) and doubts about Peter Costello and Simon Rusk.

Suspensions have been dished out to Mark Angel and Mark Greaves.

We will again be without Scott Stamps and Kenny Coleman although Scott is now back to full training and has a chance of making the squad to face Scunthorpe on Saturday, March 1st.  If he can get his place back off the other Scott.

There are slight doubts about Sean Flynn (hip), Dean Bennett (toe) and Dion Scott (blisters) but they should all be on the front of the grid come kick off time.
