Harriers Online. The wonderful world of Kidderminster Harriers

Match preview Vs Rushden & Diamonds

Date: 14-04-07 Venue: Nene Park Kick off: 15:00hrs
The Harriers can sit back now and take a breather from going all out to qualify for the play-offs after seeing what WAS definitely the last chance against Woking last Monday.    With five games left and the Reds thirteen points adrift it doesn't take a mathematician to realise that we can only afford to drop two points while every team above us lose all their remaining games.

Following on from the Woking game we had no new injuries but Jonny Harkness might still be missing following the calf injury he received at Stevenage.    Loan signing Glenn Wilson will definitely miss the game as part of the deal to come here stipulates that he couldn't play against his parent club.

Chris BeardsleyWayne Hatswell Russ Penn will play in his last game before his latest suspension kicks in against Aldershot on Tuesday evening next week.    He'll be missing for Aldershot, Morecambe and Grays but not the Trophy Final unless he get's himself sent off for violent conduct in one of our two last League games.

It's not known what the injury situation is at Nene Park but they don't have any suspensions that could keep players out.

They do have two ex Harriers on their books.    We all know Wayne Hatswell is there and is a first team regular but they also have Chris Beardsley on loan from Mansfield but he seems to be used mainly off the bench and didn't even get that far when they lost at home to Southport last Saturday but did return to it at York City on Tuesday.

It's a known fact that we always play better away from home and I think we could be looking at a positive result at Irthlingborough.    It's still too late for the play offs though.

The one thing about playing at Rushden is that a good Harriers following is always guaranteed.    Even though it's a little too far away for a true local derby it does seem to capture the imagination of us all.
