Farsley were something of an unknown quantity and we didn't expect their, more than, direct type of game and could have paid the price more dearly if it hadn't been for our better fitness levels.
York should pose a similar kind of threat than Exeter did considering they tend to play more football than hoofball. Saying that their football isn't exactly paying dividends at the moment and they're hovering around the foot of the table with just the one win and two draws this season, the win coming at another struggling side, Northwich.
We clearly missed Stuart Whitehead at Farsley after he injured his ankle during training the previous day and it's very doubtful that he'll be fit to face York. Simon Russell will still be missing but he's now on the comeback trail after taking part in a closed practice game at Birmingham City's training ground on Wednesday. A game we lost 6-0 but the side was mainly second string and trial players.
York have no obvious injuries following their home draw against Altrincham on Tuesday evening, a game that they were winning until the final seconds when the visitors scored. They do have a former Harrier in their team but Chris Beardsley doesn't seem to be an automatic first team choice.
This is going to be another tough game for the Harriers but we thought that against Exeter and look how that turned out. We also thought that to win at Farsley would be a formality and look how that one ended up.
I think we'll win this one and continue our unbeaten run but it won't be another four goal walkover.
