Match preview Vs Wrexham AFC


Date: 24-08-10gif Venue: Racecourse Groundgif Kick off: 19:45hrs
Two teams hoping to get their respective seasons up and running will be meeting at the Racecourse Ground, Wrexham, tomorrow evening when the Harriers take on the hosts.  Both clubs had an opening day win with Wrexham winning at home to Cambridge and us coming away from York with a fine win.  Since then both sides have plunged to consecutive bad results with Wrexham losing 3-0 at Forest Green and then a disastrous 4-3 at Eastbourne on Saturday.  We have been no better with almost similar scorelines against Southport and Mansfield.

Dean Keates We have a few injury worries for the game tomorrow with the main one being John Finnigan who will be out for up to another month with a re-occurrence of a calf problem that he had last season.  Mark Albrighton has a bit of a hamstring injury and it's touch and go wether he plays.  Callum Gittings picked up a knock to his ankle against Mansfield and was withdrawn at halftime but he could be fit with a bit of magic spray.

Lee Vaughan will miss the final game of his four game suspension and new loan signing, Marc Williams, will not be allowed to play against his parent club.  We do have some good news though and that's about Lee Morris who is now deemed fit to play.

We could see some changes to the starting line-up because of these injuries with Steve Burr eager to stop this losing run.  Morris and Nick Wright should be a striking partnership with Chris McPhee moving back into midfield and possibly Tom Sharpe coming back into the side at the expense of Albrighton.

Wrexham, who have the former Harriers midfield midget Deane Keates (right) in their ranks, will be without just the one player.  Frank Sinclair picked up a groin strain against Eastbourne and is very doubtful but then again he could be down the Post Office picking his weekly pension up.

Up front they have the two Andys; Mangan and Morrell.  Mangan eventually signed for them once his six month ban for illegal match betting was over and Morrell re-signed for them from Bury after getting his career as high as Coventry City which isn't saying much.

They also have a host of other new faces with the most notable being Nathan Knight-Percival (Histon), Marvin Andrews (Livingstone) and Jamie Tolley (Hereford).

I'm hoping that we get yet another good result at Wrexham having only lost there once in five meetings.  It's going to be tough but I think we can do it.
