Match preview Vs Forest Green Rovers


Date: 07-04-09gif Venue: The New Lawngif Kick off: 19:45hrs
It's a busy week for us with three games in seven days, four if you count in the Burton game next Monday.  We're on the road on Thursday and Saturday to Ebbsfleet Utd and then Altrincham but first there's the small matter of a short road trip to play Forest Green Rovers.

Both teams are on a high following last Saturdays games.  We came from behind to beat play-off hopefuls Stevenage 4-2 and FGR travelled to the 'mighty' Cambridge Utd and pulled off one of the shock results of the day by beating their hosts 1-0 with a goal from the dangerous Andy Mangan.

The game tomorrow evening is now set up to be an interesting one.  Will the Harriers brush aside their struggling hosts with ease on the march back to the Football League or will FGR scalp another high profile victim and see us lose most of the four goal advantage accrued from beating Stevenage?

We should be able to turn out the same starting squad again and will probably go with the Darryl Knights option first and then change to the Martin Brittain set up if things aren't going our way.

Forest Green will be without Les Afful after he did his Cruciate Ligament against Histon in February and he's now out for the rest of the season and Jerry Gill is sidelined with a serious facial injury.

There's also an old face to see playing for Forest Green after Lee Ayres joined them from Redditch Utd just before Christmas.  He seems to have settled in there and is now a first team regular.

It's a foregone conclusion that this is going to be another tough game with everyone wanting to beat us now.  For us we ned to make sure that the free scoring Andy Mangan is taken care of and if we can stop him scoring then we might be able to record our first ever League win at the Lawn (old or new).
