They'll be out looking for revenge but we'll also be out looking for a win to bring some money into the club. With Barry canvassing for someone to take over and a critical money flow problem then the FA Cup is seen as the main cash cow of the season. A win tomorrow, or in an unwanted replay on Tuesday, could see the Harriers drawn against League opposition in the next round but knowing our luck we won't be. You never know though.
We could have injury problems for the game with Jack Byrne (groin) and Keith Briggs (hamstring) both doubtful. Aaron Griffiths will miss this and the next two games following his harsh sending off at Kettering last week and Mike Williams, hip, is borderline to play. His brother Marc could also miss out if Wrexham don't want him cup tied but the Harriers manager, Steve Burr, is hopeful that he'll play.
Ollie Thorne should start the game after sitting on the bench as an unused sub last Saturday. That could mean that Mark Albrighton would play at left back if Mike Williams doesn't make the cut.
City have a new manager with Gary Mills having been appointed to replace the sacked Martin Foyle last week. One of his first jobs was to bring former Harrier David McDermott back to the club after being given his marching orders last week before Mills joined the club. Mills stated that he was a big fan of Maccy D and wanted to give him a second chance. Something some Harriers fans would never do.
Mills has also bought another former player back to the club today with defender Chris Smith coming in on loan from Mansfield. Smith also played for Mills' former club Tamworth and also for local basket cases Worcester City.
City will be without the services of Chris Carruthers (knee) and Levi Mackin (ligament) for a while longer although both are back in training now but too soon for our game.
Another former Harrier, Duane Courtney (above left), is at City and he could regret opening his gob to slag off the Harriers for the second time this season. His first time was prior to opening day and that backfired when he gave away the penalty for our winner and then last week he decided it would be a good idea to slag us off again. Could lightening strike twice?
I have a good feeling about this game and I think we'll get through to the next round. I know a new manager can inspire a team but I don't think it's going to happen this time.
