Match preview Vs York City

Date: 20-01-07 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 15:00hrs
The Harriers return to Aggborough tomorrow for a Conference league game against third placed York City in what seems ages since we last had a home game.    That was on New Years Day against Cambridge Utd.

Since that victory we have been on FA Trophy duty, first for the replay at Vauxhall and then last Saturday at Exeter where we disposed of them after a bit of a battle.    Next up in the cup is a tie against Braintree Town at home but until then it's a matter of increasing our points tally to get into the play-offs.

The Reds have now gone eight games un-beaten and will be hoping to continue that trend tomorrow.    Iyseden Christie will be making his first appearance at home since signing permanently from Rochdale and he's now fully recovered from a foot injury that he had for the Exeter game.

Both Gavin Hurren and Michael Blackwood are now fully recovered from their hamstring injuries and will be back in contention for a starting spot but Bob Taylor, who never got much of a look in anyway, has now left the club.

This game could also be James Constables penultimate appearance for us with the signs coming from Walsall that he will be re-called to the Bescot Stadium.    His last game, unless the loan IS extended or we buy him, will be against Stafford Rangers at Aggborough on Tuesday evening.

New signing Daniel McGhee, who was on the bench last Saturday, is not expected to occupy the same place this week now that we have two first teamers returning from injury.

York City will be without both Nathan Peat and James Dudgeon following their dismissals from the Woking game on December 29th.    They were both handed three game bans for violent conduct.

One who will be making an appearance is Clayton Donaldson.    He has been the subject of transfer talk since the start of the year with first Peterborough failing to land him with a £100,000 bid and then struggling Accrington offered £10,000 more but still failed to land him.

York don't seem to have any injury worries so, apart from the two mentioned before, will be at full strength.    This is going to be another tough test for us but we do have the advantage of fire power in our team which is more than City have with just Donaldson scoring goals for them.

Hopefully the transfer talk will have un-settled him slightly and he'll have a poor game.
