The Harriers Director of Football, Jan Molby, is said to be actively looking for a big central defender following the banning of Abdou Sall for three games. Having discounted Chris McHale for being one of those that are tired, after just a quarter of the season gone, he could do no worse than look at Stevland Angus.
He's the big central defender of our visitors, Cambridge, this weekend and it seems that he's in the middle of a fall out with his boss, Herve Renard. Following his substitution in their LDV win at Boston on Wednesday night he threw a bag of ice at the boss who then stuck his fist in his face and 'had words'.
It's very unlikely that Jan would be interested in him though, he's never played for Swansea or Hull.
Another one to fit the bill would be Simon Weaver from Lincoln City. He has asked for a move from there, with a few months of his contract to run, but if he did come here would it be for a fee? Also I could see, as part of any deal, his old club refusing to let us play him when we go there in two weeks time.
I think McHale will be playing on Saturday anyway and I see no problem with that. He's no worse than any other defender on our books.
Also not appearing for us will be Mickey Mellon, again, and Reuben Hazell. Christie will probably be on the bench and so should Freddy Advice.
This week we should start a game with Simon Brown on the pitch considering that he was the only one to look like scoring against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night. Jan will probably continue with the pairing of Langmead and Diop up front in the continuing effort to solve our scoring problems. I don't see Christiansen being the answer.
Utd will be without Franco Nacca. He's Nacca'd with an ankle injury and will be out for the foreseeable future. Defender, Warren Goodhind and striker, Shane Tudor are back from injury but they are also without Daniel Webb (knee) Kingsley Mbome (backstrain) and Igor Latte-Yedo (hamstring).
It's our first six pointer of the season, aren't they all?, and we need to get maximum points from this game to leapfrog Cambridge and with a bit of luck shoot up to 17th place in the league.
