Match preview Vs Tamworth

Date: 01-10-05 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 15:00hrs
I'm beginning to hate doing these previews.    You try to build your hopes up by telling yourself that we can beat these lowly placed sides and what do they go and do?    Bloody lose!

Following fantastic results against such powerful teams as Forest Green, Halifax and Crawley we meet up with yet another bottom of the table side when we go head to head with neighbours Tamworth tomorrow.

As with FGR the other week it'll seem as if we're playing ourselves again because they have a rather substantial amount of ex Harriers in their squad.

Adie Smith Scott Stamps Scott Stamps, Adie Smith, Hugh McAuley and Graham Ward have passed through the hallowed halls of Aggborough at one time or another and the first two mentioned are bound to receive a big cheer from the Harriers faithful who remember how good they were for us.

Also playing for Tamworth are three interesting players.    The first one is the legendary Bob Taylor but he is rumoured to be on his way out of the club after failing to find the net this season and is now looking to go into management at Redditch.

Next up is the infamous 'Banana Man' Julian Alsop.    After getting sacked from Oxford for an offence that cannot be published in this family friendly website he moved around non-league for a bit before arriving back where he started his career, at The Lamb, at the end of last season.    He's now out injured so will not be able to appreciate a warm welcome from us.

The third interesting name is that of Jamie Francis and the clue is in the surname.    He even looks like his illustrious father but doesn't seem to have acquired his goal scoring skills.

I don't know about any other team news for Tamworth.    That's the one thing I've noticed about relegation from the Football League, other teams websites are rarely updated and you can never find any team news and the message boards are no help either.

The main team news for us concerns the loss of Terry Fleming who will be forced to miss the game due to his dismissal at Crawley on Tuesday evening for opening his mouth once too often.    Thankfully it's only for one game and we should be able to cope with that.

There seem to be no other injuries to add to the already known about Chris McHale and Martin O'Connor.

I fully expect to see a more attack minded side turn out tomorrow and it's no more or less than the fans deserve after suffering nothing but dross so far this season.    We have simply got to beat Tamworth, we, or Stuart Watkiss, cannot afford to see another negative result against another bottom of the table side.
