Match preview Vs Burton Albion

Date: 03-11-07 Venue: Pirelli Stadium Kick off: 15:00hrs
The Harriers have a tough game coming up tomorrow when they travel to nearby Burton.    Although it's a team we always seem to do well at, with our recent poor to middling form, this will be a good chance to get ourselves in the groove for next weeks FA Cup tie at Ware.

Andy Ducros It was originally thought that we would be without leading scorer James Constable after he picked up a hamstring injury at Histon two weeks back but he is now back in training and has a good chance of making the team by Saturday.    Also back for us, after both were surprisingly missing last week, are Iyseden Christie and Dean Bennett.

Iyseden missed the victory against Vauxhall after picking up a hip injury during the previous game against Weymouth and then failing to respond to pain killing injections.    He should be fit for tomorrow as should Deano who made it to the bench for the Vauxhall game although he too picked up an injury against Weymouth.

Scott Bevan, Jeff Kenna and Simon Russell are all long term injuries and will definitely miss the game.

It's not known what the injury situation is at Burton but they have recently taken Andy Gooding on loan from Coventry City and former Harrier Andy Ducros (left) has now joined Solihull Moors permanently after not being offered a new contract at the end of last season.

Andy Corbett and John McGrath are both still there though.

Albion are going great guns at the moment and sitting well placed at 3rd in the table.    Their home form is very strong with just the one defeat against Oxford at the beginning of the season and a draw against Ebbsfleet a bit later on.    They've won their last four home games including the FA Cup game against Tamworth last week and this will be a tough game for us to get something from.

I'm hoping for a draw but if Constable does return to the side then a win isn't beyond us.
