Match preview Vs Histon


Date: 27-02-10gif Venue: Aggboroughgif Kick off: 15:00hrs
We'll be hoping to give James Lawrie his long overdue debut at home to struggling Histon tomorrow.  He should have been available for the big Trophy game at Oxford Utd last week but a mix up with his registration papers meant that he was forced to miss the exciting 2-1 win that saw the Harriers progress into the semi finals and a double header against old foes Stevenage Borough.

Marcus Bignot Ironically if Lawrie does get to play against Histon then he'll then have to wait until the following Saturday for his next appearance for the Harriers because he's due to play for the Northern Ireland U21 side for a friendly match in San Marino on Tuesday.

We're already one striker down following the return of Damian Spencer to his parent club Kettering and Steve Burr could face a selection problem when he decides who he wants to play alongside Robbie Matthews.  That is if he decides to start with Matthews in the first place, something that hasn't happened in recent weeks.  He is rumoured to be trying to be bringing in another striker by 5:00pm tonight but we'll have to wait and see.

There could also be home debuts for both Marcus Bignot (left) and Ross Atkins after they signed last week.  Those who went to Oxford will have seen Atkins looking very assured in goal while Biggie also settled in quickly after coming in twenty minutes from the end of the game.  The only injury in the squad is to Dean Coleman and that's the reason Atkins is here.

Histon as mentioned before are struggling near to the bottom of the table this season after having a decent push for promotion and good cup runs in recent years.  In the boardroom they have also been in turmoil with the previous chairman, Gareth Baldwin, leaving in ignominious circumstances and the former manager Steve Fallon also being suspended from the club then bought back as assistant to Alan Lewer before finally walking out on the club a few days later.

They have also had a player exodus in an effort to balance the books but now that seems to be getting behind them and Lewer is now looking forward to re-building the side ready for next season.

They'll be without Adam Bygrave following his red card at Oxford two weeks ago and Lanyre Oyebanjo has been out injured for a while but is now making his way back to fitness.  He could figure for them from the bench tomorrow.

We'll be treating this game just as seriously as we did Oxford and we should be fully focussed on the League with the Stevenage games put to the back of our minds.  I fully expect us to carry on with the unbeaten run that we've been on ever since Steve Burr took charge and finish the day with another three points.
