Match preview Vs Salisbury City


Date: 27-03-10gif Venue: Aggboroughgif Kick off: 15:00hrs
Tom Sharpe It looks like we'll be seeing another new look team when the Harriers take to the field tomorrow against Salisbury City.  Yesterday Gavin Caines left to join Luton Town for the remainder of the season and in his place came a double helping of new players with Lloyd Kerry coming in from Chesterfield and Luke Prosser joining up with his fellow team mate, James Lawrie, from Port Vale.

Both players could make an appearance at some stage of the game although Tom Sharpe (left) will be expected to remain in the centre half position that he took from Caines two weeks ago.

We'll want to avenge the 1-0 defeat down in Wessex back at the start of the season and hopefully, apart from Dean Coleman (now back from an operation to his groin), we'll be at full strength.  John Finnigan should make the bench at least following his return from injury and so too should David McDermott now that he has returned from his loan at Halesowen.

City will be without goalkeeper James Bittner following his dismissal in their 3-1 home defeat at home to Forest Green last Tuesday.  He handled the ball outside the box and received a red card for his mistake.

They were also in the market for new players yesterday and midfielder Chris Shepherd joined them for the remainder of the season from Exeter City while Toby Osman and Pat Cox both left the club with Cox expected to join Bognor Town soon.

They have just a couple of injury worries.  One is thankfully to Rob Sinclair, a very good player who I wouldn't mind seeing playing for us, and the other is Ronnie Bull.  They will both face fitness tests before a decision is made.

Following our run of poor results this March, that all seem to have been a victim of the Manager of the Month awarded to Steve Burr, we'll be needing to get a result from this game to put that curse to bed and to get ourselves into as high a place in the table as possible.  To beat City will be a tough ask at the best of times and if it wasn't for their ten point deduction earlier in the season they would be just one place, 12th, below us in the League.

I, personally, think we're going to see a continuation of this damned curse for a while longer and may have to settle for a draw.
