Match preview Vs Barrow


Date: 08-04-10gif Venue: Holker Streetgif Kick off: 19:45hrs
The Harriers face two tough games within two days of each other starting tomorrow night when we take on Barrow in Cumbria.  One day off then we cross the Pennines into Northumbria on the second leg of our Umbrian tour to play Gateshead.

We should be almost at full strength for the first game with our only definite injury being Dean Coleman.  There is still no sign of John Finnigan making a comeback yet so it's to be assumed that he won't be ready for tomorrow.  Besides, Jack Byrne seems to be coping pretty well in his place and has been a revelation since coming to Aggborough from local side Redditch Utd.

Jas Singh played in goal against Rushden on Easter Monday and didn't do too badly.  Sometimes his judgement was wrong when playing the ball out into the wind and it could easily have backfired or the ball could even have stayed on the park.  Apart from that he didn't make many mistakes but I don't think he's any better than Ross Atkins so it's for that reason I think Atkins will be back between the sticks tomorrow.

We threw away two points with Chris McPhee's late penalty miss in the dying seconds of the Rushden game but at least we didn't play as badly as Barrow did when they lost 3-0 at Tamworth.  The Barrow manager, Dave Bayliss, accused his side of not being up for the game, looking lethargic and he accused some of his own players of cheating and trying to con the ref and their own fans.  His assistant, Darren Sheridan, was sent to the stands by the referee for arguing.

They too should more or less be at full strength with striker Jason Walker back after completing a three match suspension and defender Gareth Jellyman has now returned to the squad after recovering from a hamstring injury.

We're going to need to play a bit better than we have in the last two games if we hope to earn three points in Barrow.  Is it only three games since we destroyed Cambridge Utd?  Seems like three months.
