Harriers Online. The wonderful world of Kidderminster Harriers

Match preview Vs AFC Wimbledon


Date: 12-03-11gif Venue: Kingsmeadowgif Kick off: 15:00hrs
The Harriers have acted quickly to bring in a replacement for the injured Tom Sharpe just in time for tomorrows tasty clash against AFC Wimbledon at Kingsmeadow.  Matt Lowe has joined the club on loan from Macclesfield until the end of the season and will be in the squad that makes the journey down.  Tom suffered a dislocated knee against Crawley Town on Tuesday and will now miss the remainder of the season.

Lowe will still need to compete for a starting place with Lee Vaughan for the full back position and a host of others for the centre half spot.

Drewe Broughton Apart from Jack Byrne sitting out the game with the last installment of his suspension we could still be without Keith Briggs after he suffered another re-occurrence of his hamstring injury at Luton last week forcing him to miss out on Tuesday.  Sean Canham also picked up an achilles tendon injury at the end of that game forcing him, also, to miss out on the Crawley game.  Apart from those four we should have no other absentees.

Wimbledon also have a few injuries to contend with as they endeavour to regain top spot from Crawley after the draw against us saw them leapfrog tomorrows opponents on goal difference.  A twelve goal difference.

They'll be without Sam Hatton with an ankle injury, Christian Jolley (concussion), Gareth Gwillim (calf strain), Ismail Yakubu (bruised collar bone) and Fraser Franks who has problems with his medial ligaments.  Franks picked his injury up in the 2-1 defeat at Grimsby last Saturday.

They do have some good news, for themselves, though.  Luke Moore is back in training in the hope that he will be available on Saturday and both Lee Minshull and Sammy Moore played for the reserves on Wednesday and will also be in the frame for a game.

No doubt one of the biggest attractions for the travelling Harriers fans, apart from the three points, will be the chance to throw insults at Drewe Broughton (left).  Since leaving us back in June 2003 he has added another eleven clubs to his CV including two separate stays at Rushden and Lincoln theoretically making it thirteen clubs.

In his time with us he partnered Bo Henriksen and allowed the legendary Dane to rack up thirty or more goals.  Many people say that Drewe didn't score many himself but with twenty four goals during his time at Aggborough it makes that statement a bit silly.

As long as he doesn't score tomorrow we'll be happy.  We'll be even happier with all three points.
