Match preview Vs Cambridge Utd


Date: 30-03-10gif Venue: Aggboroughgif Kick off: 19:45hrs
The Harriers will be wanting to bounce back from Saturdays disastrous home defeat against Salisbury City tomorrow evening with the visit of Cambridge Utd to Aggborough.  While the Harriers manager, Steve Burr, was committing Hari-Kiri with his team selection against City his counterpart at Cambridge was racking up his tenth unbeaten game with a 3-0 win against Grays Athletic.  He's now hoping to take the Manager of the Month award off Burrs hands and to be truthful he's bloody welcome to it.

In the Grays game Danny Crow scored a hat trick to take his goal tally this season to twenty goals.  Not a bad feat considering he couldn't get a regular slot in the side while Chris Holroyd was at the club but once he left in January to join Brighton Crow stepped up to the mark and the goals flew in.  If only we had been so lucky.

Against Salisbury we thought that we could actually achieve something without anyone to score that rare commodity for us, goals.  Burrs idea of hoping to score goals from the bench was doomed to failure and that's just what happened.  We had just three shots on goal throughout the game and they all missed the target without the City keeper having to make a single save.

That has got to change for the visit of the team that leapfrogged us in the table because of that result and we have to play a more attack minded forward line.  That line has been slimmed down slightly today with Adam Boyes being 'recalled' to Scunthorpe but, to be honest, he was no great shakes anyway and he won't be missed.  He probably wasn't missed at Scunthorpe either.

We could be without Lee Baker again after he missed Saturdays game because of a groin strain that he picked up at the end of training on Friday.  He'll undergo last minute tests to see if he can play and if not then either Luke Prosser or Tom Sharpe will continue in his place although I'd rather Marcus Bignot get chosen instead.

John Finnigan could make a comeback, thankfully, from his groin strain but we've been saying that for ages now and it looks no nearer to happening than it was three weeks ago.

Utd have just two players doubtful for the game.  Goalkeeper Danny Potter has been out for a while with a shoulder injury and is no nearer to making a return.  The other injury is to Robbie Wilmott and he has been missing for a while too with fluid on the knee.

This game is not the ideal one to try and get back to winning ways but if we don't try then we don't get.
