Match preview Vs Grimsby Town


Date: 09-04-11gif Venue: Blundell Parkgif Kick off: 15:00hrs
The Harriers will be hoping to get maximum points from this game at Grimsby tomorrow and to get back into those highly sought after play off places.  We dropped out of them last week, but only on goal difference, when we drew at home to Luton in a game that was totally exciting and absorbing for the fans of both sides.

After leading going into the break we allowed Luton to get back into the game with two well taken goals but then managed to draw level soon after.  That breathing space didn't last long before Luton scored once more to make it 3-2 just seconds from the end and the Harriers fans thought it was all over and we had crashed to our first defeat in thirteen games.

We all know the team that Steve Burr has assembled are a bunch of fighters but we never expected the goal that gave us a last second draw to come from defender Mike Williams.  The noise that erupted as the Welshman wheeled away in celebration was deafening and we finally knew that at Aggborough the good times are back.

We now need to take that team and fan spirit to Grimsby's Blundell Park tomorrow and show them that the Harriers are in town and they don't give in easy.

We'll have two definites out in Tom Sharpe and Lee Morris.  Sharpy is out for the remainder of the season with a dislocated knee while Morris picked up a calf injury in training while there are also doubts about the fitness of Luton hero Williams, also calf, and Michael Briscoe with an ankle injury.

Our hosts will be without Charles Ademeno while he sits out a three match ban and they will also give Serge Makofo a late fitness test on a hip problem.

Grimsby have just bought in a new management team to replace the departed Neil Woods.  They did try to tap up our Steve Burr but were given short shrift by the new board and by the man himself after he only went and signed a new three year contract to keep himself at Aggborough until 2014.  Grimsby have now acquired the services of the 'former' Boston Utd management duo Rob Scott and Paul Hurst but deny tapping them up even though there was a claim of that from Boston.

Under their tenure of three games so far they have yet to lead the side to a win and have earned just a solitary point at home to Tamworth in their first game in charge.  The other two games ended in defeat at home to Darlington and away at Newport last Saturday so now they'll be hoping for a first win against us.

No, afraid not!
