Match preview Vs Mansfield Town


Date: 21-08-10gif Venue: Aggboroughgif Kick off: 15:00hrs
Nick Wright Both of the sides turning out at Aggborough tomorrow will be wanting to reverse last Tuesday evenings results.  We lost narrowly to Southport in a ding dong match that ended with a 3-4 scoreline but had excitement by the bucketful while Mansfield got hammered 3-0 at Fleetwood in a display that many of their fans called shocking and disgraceful.

We've got less of an improvement to make but improve we must if we hope to achieve anything this season and just need to tighten up at the back and stop bypassing the midfield by aiming balls at the stars.  Mansfield just need to improve all round and no doubt that's something they are already addressing.

Marc Williams debuted for the Harriers on Tuesday and scored soon after coming on with a good old poachers goal.  He might be starting the game this time out with the possibility that Lee Morris will still be out with a slight hamstring injury and also because the other main striker the other night, Nick Wright, had such a storming game that saw his pace and power grab a stunning first Harriers goal for him.

We still have a doubt with John Finnigan not being quite fit yet and also we'll again be without Lee Vaughan who serves the third game of his four game ban.

Mansfield have no real worries prior to the game with just goalkeeper Alan Marriott doubtful following a a suspected stomach problem that actually turned out to be a slight back injury.  He was expected to be facing surgery and six months out of the game but now he's taking just tablets to ease the problem.

As said before both sides will want to improve on Tuesdays showings but I think in this case it's going to be us that goes home with all three points.
