Match preview Vs Weymouth

Date: 19-04-08 Venue: The Wessex Stadium Kick off: 15:00hrs
The Harriers fans travelling down to Weymouth will be hoping for a bit more than good weather when the Harriers take on relegation threatened Weymouth tomorrow.  They'll be hoping for three points too.

Mark Creighton With the Reds on a roll away from home the signs look good that they can win again and in doing so gain revenge for the defeat in the FA Trophy back in January.  Then again, that defeat was our own fault after failing to press home the advantage of a home game and of dominating the first half without scoring.  To top it all off when the game finished all square after extra time we somehow managed to dish up the worst set of penalties ever seen.

One of the players that missed his penalty that night - and did so spectacularly - was Iyseden Christie.  More or less since then he has been on an amazing scoring run of eleven goals including every game in the last seven.

With three more games to go until the end of the season it'll be great if Iyseden manages to keep this fantastic run going.

We should be back to full strength for the game with the only doubt being Mark Creighton after he missed the Histon game with infected blisters on his feet.  After more than seven days of treatment he should be fit once more.

Chris MacKenzie is also fit too and will now be hoping to regain his number one goalkeeper role from Dean Coleman.  The Harriers manager, Mark Yates, has said in the press that he wants Macca to play in two more games before the end of the season so he might find himself on the bench for this one and then play against Burton and Woking.

Weymouth, as mentioned earlier, are struggling near the bottom and are desperate to gain maximum points from their remaining three games.  They won their first game since Easter Monday on Tuesday evening when they beat already relegated Droylsden 2-1 at home.  A game that saw Mark Convery sent off.

They have a few injuries to worry about with Trevor Challis coming back from a groin injury and Michael Malcolm recovering from a head injury.  Both those could play but Marcus Browning, Jake Hyde and Paolo Vernazza won't be.
