Match preview Vs Wrexham AFC


Date: 26-02-11gif Venue: Aggboroughgif Kick off: 15:00hrs
This is now make or break time at this stage of the season for the Harriers with the leading six sides now starting to break away from the rest of the League.  We're tucked in nicely in sixth place but we now face what could be the worst run of games that any team could wish for.

Mark Creighton In quick succession we play 4th placed Luton Town next Saturday, 2nd placed Crawley Town the following Tuesday, leaders AFC Wimbledon the Saturday after that but first we have to get a result against Wrexham in 3rd place.  They arrive here following an excellent piece of work at Wimbledon on Tuesday when they came away from London with all three points in their back pocket.  That result came as a bit of a surprise considering they got hammered 7-2 at home to Gateshead last Saturday.

Obviously not a side to let a bad defeat get to them then?

We've had a good spell for some time now with our last defeat coming at Barrow in January to give us a good run of eight games unbeaten but that was nothing compared to Wrexhams recent unbeaten run that stretched for fourteen games until Crawley two weeks ago.  With a bit of luck we can try and equal that at least but it'll have to be without a few important players.

Firstly we'll have Jack Byrne missing for four games following his sending off at Darlington.  Also out suspended is Lee Vaughan serving the second, and last, of his two game ban for ten yellows while Keith Briggs is almost certain to be out injured after getting his ankles crocked for the second game in a row on Tuesday evening.  Michael Briscoe is a doubt with an ankle injury.

At least we should be seeing Lee Morris returning from injury sometime soon.  He was supposed to have been ready for the game in midweek but it looks like he failed the fitness test.  He should be ok for tomorrow though.

Wrexham seem to be injury free so should be putting out a strong side against us.  We'll be seeing a return to Aggborough for crowd favourite Mark Creighton (right) after he joined them from Oxford Utd in January after falling out of favour with the League 2 club.  Also with the Dragons is Dean Keates and more recently Marc Williams, brother of our own Mike.  Marc seems to be completely out of favour with them and even though he's signed a six month extension to his contract it's very unlikely we'll see him out on the field.

This game also promises to be a big attraction and we should be looking at our biggest crowd of the season and hopefully much higher that the Altrincham game two weeks ago that attracted just under 3000 on the back of a massive media campaign by KHIST.  This game has been a bit more low key but that could be because of the knowledge that Wrexham could be bringing approaching 1000 of their own fans to the game.

Just like when Oxford used to come to town.
