Scunthorpe Utd
At Aggborough
1/3/03 3:00pm
The Harriers try to get back into a winning streak tomorrow when they take on Scunthorpe Utd at Aggborough in a game between two clubs so equally matched that only 6 goals in Utd's favour separate us.  We do have one game in hand though.

We will be able to welcome our new loan signing from Forest, Wes Morgan, and hoping that he will be able to do a job for us in tightening up our somewhat suspect defence.  After letting in 3 against Boston last week it's in need of a big man at the back and big Wes could be that man.

Scunny will be without their usual big man up front because Steve Torpey is out for the rest of the season after tearing a muscle against Exeter two weeks ago.  Manager Brian Laws has signed the ex Wolves and Man City forward Robert Taylor on a non contract basis to replace him.

They have just failed in their bid to sign Cliff Byrne from Sunderland after he spent the last 3 months on loan at Glanford Park but has opted to go back to Sunderland to try and break into their first team instead.

We haven't got any suspensions but Scunny have.  Both Jamie McCombe and Alex Calvo-Garcia will miss this game after both picking up their fifth yellow cards at Hull City recently.

We'll still be without Scott Stamps after he injured his groin in training this week but Kenny Coleman is now back in training and could be on the bench tomorrow.

Dean Bennett was added to the sick list after he damaged his hamstring at Boston.  He could be out for up to two months.

Ian Foster, who was placed on the transfer list this week, has been attracting the attentions of both Burton Albion and Chester City but will still be available for tomorrow if needed.
