Match preview Vs Mansfield Town


Date: 08-09-09gif Venue: Aggboroughgif Kick off: 19:45hrs
We will be facing probably the toughest test so far this season tomorrow night and on the showings of our two previous games against Tamworth and Eastbourne it'll be a test we will not be relishing.  Mansfield are our guests here at Aggborough and they'll be hoping to go to the top of the table if this, and other results, go their way.

Blair Sturrock We, on the other hand, will be hoping for some points to get our season back on track (again!) and start to climb that table to a more respectable placing.

Mansfield will have to complete their task without the possibility of the former Harrier Craig Armstrong playing as he struggles to come back from a hamstring injury.  His team mate Paul Heckingbottom will definitely miss the game with the same injury.

They will almost certainly include two other former Harriers in the team.  Luke Jones is quickly becoming a fans favourite at Field Mill with his strong displays in the middle of the park although he was never quite so impressive with us.  The other old boy is Blair Sturrock (right) who signed for the Stags on deadline day after being without a club for a while.

We have doubts surrounding Robbie Matthews and John Finnigan after both of them limped out of the Eastbourne defeat on Saturday.  Finn had only been on the pitch for twenty minutes too when he had originally come on in place of Matthews who had a re-occurrence of his groin injury.

This is going to be a tough, tough game and one that with our present form we look unlikely to win.  Stranger things have happened though and if they had a rocket from Mark Yates after the Eastbourne game then they might actually come out with the conviction that they could get something from this game.

I'm not confident though.
