Match preview Vs Morecambe

Date: 21-04-07 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 15:00hrs
The season starts to wind down tomorrow with the visit of Morecambe for our final home game of the season.  Morecambe will be wanting to get at least one point to confirm their play-off place and we'll be wanting to turn our home form around, now that it's too late, and entertain the crowd for the first time in ages.  It would be nice to see that rarity - a goal.

We haven't scored at home since the first leg of the Trophy in March and have now gone four home games without a goal.  Both Christie and Constable haven't looked like getting a goal and both at Rushden and against Aldershot on Tuesday neither player had a single shot on goal.  Something has got to give soon so I think we're due a goal from either one of them.

Gary Hay and Luke Reynolds both started the game on Tuesday and, although Hay did look slightly sharper, we cannot start with these two again.  As with C & C it just isn't working out and no one can seem to put their finger on the reason why.

Jonny Harkness will be missing for this game after getting himself sent off somewhat harshly against Aldershot and Russ Penn sits out the second game of his three match ban.

We have just the injury to Andy Ferrell and I think time is running out for him and we will never see him play again in Harriers colours.

Morecambe had a set back in their promotion campaign on Saturday after going down 2-1 at Weymouth.  They'll be without the on loan Matthew Blinkhorn after he was re-called by Blackpool and also Michael Twiss.  Twiss has aggravated his knee injury and will now be rested until the play-offs.

Doubtful is Wayne Curtis who hobbled off the pitch at Weymouth with a foot injury after kicking a Weymouth players studs hard.  He'll face a pre game test to see if he'll be fit enough.

Morecambe will certainly be missing the goals of both Twiss and Blinkhorn on the run in and more so the Blackpool youngster after he knocked in eight goals in just twelve games for them.  The kind of form we once saw from James Constable.

I think we're overdue a home win and I also think that Morecambe could miss out on their promotion chance with Burton playing at a tired out Northwich on Saturday well poised to leapfrog them.

We also need to give the team a good send-off for the Trophy Final and a good win would help us with that.
