Match preview Vs Cambridge Utd


Date: 18-02-11gif Venue: Abbey Stadiumgif Kick off: 19:45hrs
The Harriers will be in action tonight when they travel to Cambridge to take on the struggling United.  Following another brilliant win at home to Altrincham last week we should be in a great frame of mind to get something from this game against a side that have failed their fans miserably this season.  A win would also see us leapfrogging Fleetwood to give us a taste of the play-offs.

Their record in recent weeks has been so abysmal, two wins since Christmas and just one point in the last seven games, that they were forced to dismiss manager Martin Ling from the hotseat and employ the Youth team coach, Jez George, as the Caretaker manager until further notice.  With their results, including an home defeat against Darlington on Tuesday, I can't see him getting the job full time.

In a bid to halt the slump he bought in two loan strikers yesterday, Shaun Jeffers from Coventry City and Dan Walker from Luton Town.  Jeffers has been on loan previously at Cheltenham while Walker has just finished a loan spell with Eastbourne.

They'll be without former Harriers favourite Simon Russell for this game.  He's been out for a few weeks now with an ankle injury and is some way from making a return just yet.  Jon Thorpe will also be out with the same problem while Adam Miller has been out all season so far with his ankle ligament injury.  Cambridge doesn't seem to be the best club to play for if you have a dodgy ankle.

In addition to the injury list and the new faces arriving United have also told two players that they can leave as soon as the get the chance.  Darryl Clare was told yesterday that he can go and won't play again for the club while Paul Carden was given the same news last week.

We should be getting back to near full strength again with Lee Morris now back in training and also Dave Hankin almost available once more.  Sean Canham should get another start and that's it really for us apart from Oliver Thorne finally leaving us this week to join Braintree Town.

For those that can't make it to Cambridge then don't forget that the game is being streamed live to the Aggborough Suite where everyone is welcome to watch the game and have a few bevvies too.  Don't forget to get a taxi home and wherever you do get to watch the Harriers gain another three points then don't forget to cheer them on too.
