Match preview Vs Aldershot Town

Date: 14-10-06 Venue: Recreation Ground Kick off: 15:00hrs
Bouyed by a couple of excellent results against Grays and Oxford Utd last week the Harriers journey South to Aldershot tomorrow with the aim of building on the four points collected.    The Shots aren't going through the best of times at the moment and this could be an ideal time for us to prove our worth.

From a strongish start at the beginning of the season, when they only lost one game in eight, they have now slumped to just the one win in seven games and just the two draws.    They still remain in mid table but are now drifting away from the leaders and nearer to us.

A lot of their problems have been down to injuries and they have been without Mark Molesley, Rhys Day and Mark Pritchard for most of the season and are nursing Darren Barnard through a groin injury until he can be sorted out with an operation.    Ryan Scott also picked up an injury against York City two weeks ago and was forced to miss the televised game at Woking last Monday.

We will be without Paul Bignot for, a now confirmed, three weeks following his sending off on Tuesday evening.    It's not known yet if he will be staying at Aggborough for the remainder of his loan spell or if Mark Yates will ask Crewe about extending it by a further month.

Jake Sedgemore will now regain the position he had thought was his while we are without Biggy and Michael Blackwood will continue in his now preferred berth as the clubs left back.

On the injury front we'll be without Bob Taylor for a couple of weeks after he injured a groin while in training for the Oxford game with Jeff Kenna and Dean Sturridge remaining out of action for the forseeable future.

I think we'll continue with the same line-up as we did on Tuesday with the obvious exception of Bignot.    I also think that this side has improved enormously in the past few weeks and are looking good for all three points from Hampshire.
