Match preview Vs York City


Date: 28-03-09gif Venue: The Kit Kat Crescentgif Kick off: 15:00hrs
The Harriers travel to the scene of the infamous penalty shoot out when we go to the Kit Kat Crescent to face York City and this time it won't be settled with penalties.  We just hope it will be settled by us scoring more than them and reaping another three points in our quest for League status and a third 'on the road win' in a row.

We have no new faces in the side following yet another transfer deadline last night - this time another loan signing window.  We should be going into this game with the same team that have started in the previous four games and that will include last minute goal wizard Chris McPhee.  Possibly the only doubt could be Lee Baker after he had a Glasgow Kiss at Wrexham.

McPhee has scored in the final minute of both our previous games against Woking and at Wrexham on Monday with the one at the Racecourse being the sweetest one of all.  That came after being on the back foot for most of the game and then destroying the Wrexham fans hearts with, literally, a last gasp winner.

That win took us up to fifth place in the League and the chance to go higher if Wrexham do us a favour and beat Histon.

York, on the other hand, are struggling near the bottom of the League and are just one point clear of the drop zone.  They do have one eye on the FA Trophy Final against Stevenage but I'm sure their fans would rather they concentrate on staying up.

They didn't enter the last minute rush for loans either but Ben Wilkinson has gone to Altrincham until the end of the season.

I think that with the Harriers on a roll we shouldn't have too much trouble avenging the Trophy defeat and also gaining the three points.  Bring it on.
