Match preview Vs York City

Date: 09-04-06 Venue: Kit Kat Crescent Kick off: 15:00hrs
Andy Bishop We shall have to wait all weekend before we'll be able to see the Harriers win again because we don't kick off until three o'clock on Sunday afternoon at York City.    I don't know the reasoning behind playing the game on a Sunday because there's no horse racing on in the city on Saturday, it's not Easter weekend so there won't be any more than the usual hordes of tourists and if it was because of Easter then the game would have been played on a Saturday anyway.

The only reason I can think of for the day of the game being changed is because City are afraid of us and want to postpone the defeat as long as possible.

We shall definitely be without Daryl Burgess for this game, and also for the visit to Canvey Island next Friday, after he was sent off against Stevenage last Saturday.    With a red card for that game and a previous red card at Burton earlier in the season the punishment was doubled to two weeks.

Luke Reynolds is our only doubt after only lasting twenty minutes last week before being taken off and has struggled in training all week.

York, with Andy Bishop in their ranks, are fighting for a play-off spot and did their aim no harm on Tuesday when they went to Altrincham and won 3-0 with yet another goal from the former Harrier.    Andy is the leading scorer in the Conference this season with twenty goals credited to him and with his team mate Clayton Donaldson also getting fifteen goals City have a very dangerous strikeforce, something that we can only dream of.

Their only doubt is Jamie Price who picked up a knee injury at Burton last Saturday and it's now borderline if he'll play against us.

We're going to have to wait a longer time than usual for this game but I think we should be able to get a point at least.
