Match preview Vs Woking

Date: 17-11-07 Venue: Aggborough Kick off: 12:00hrs
After thinking that there was something wrong with us - did we smell, do we have two heads and four arms? - the Setanta cameras finally roll up at Aggborough for our first time since they started showing Oxford Utd, Torquay Utd and Burton Albion relentlessly.  In fact they are already so enamoured with the thought of coming here they're coming again three weeks later to see us take on Cambridge Utd.

Woking are our small screen guests tomorrow and they are having a tough time of it this season down on the edge of the relegation zone.  Admittedly they have twenty one points and are well clear of the bottom three with only Stafford the best off having reached eight points so far.  All it needs is a disastrous run though and Woking could be down there too.

They lost 1-0 at home to Grays last Saturday in a hastily arranged game because neither side had a FA Cup game.  With only one goal scored in the last five games then it's a worrying time for the Cards.

Justin Richards They seem to be having striker problems with all their main strikers at some stage of injury or lacking in form.  Liam Marum is one of those out of sorts and has hardly played so far this season after having scored the winning, only, goal against us in the corresponding fixture last season.

Their dangerman appears to be Guiseppe Sole with four goals for them so far.

They have injury worries with the keeper, Nick Gindre, and a rookie keeper, 17yr old Ross Worner, is standing by to step up to the plate if needed.  Marvin Morgan and Jay Gasson have both been struggling with injuries too but have a fifty/fifty chance of being fit.  Midfielder Danny Bunce will miss the game through suspension after racking up five yellow cards.

We shall have two players missing through suspension after Stuart Whitehead joined Dean Bennett in the red card club at Ware last week.  Stuart was cruelly sent off after allegedly pulling back Ware's John Frendo although Frendo was already half way through his 'flying forward one-and-a-half somersault, pike'.

Deano was sent off at Burton and this will be the second missed game for him and Stuart will miss just the one.

We also have the injuries to Scott Bevan - now back in training - along with Jeff Kenna and Simon Russell but everyone else is fit.  Russ Penn and James Constable both played in the England C game in the frozen wastes of the Finnish tundra in midweek but both came through un-scathed and will be available to play.

One Harriers man who will be relishing this meeting against his old club is Justin Richards.  He played for them a couple of years ago and won the seasons top scorer award for them before joining Stevenage and then Peterborough Utd from whence he joined up with us.

Don't forget that this game starts at mid-day so don't be late for what promises to be a fourth victory in a row for the lads.
