Tom Shaw The Harriers go into the second half of the season with our first return game and also hoping for our first six pointer too.  We played Cambridge Utd back in August and again we proved to be their bogey team when we ran out 2-1 winners with a brace of goals from Steve Guinan.

Since that game we have regressed slightly while Cambridge have picked themselves up after a bad start and now sit in 4th place in the table.  They went out of the FA Cup at Wrexham on Tuesday night and one player paid the price with a broken nose.  Luke Berry will now miss out on playing at Aggborough and also for the next few weeks.

The game will see a return for the popular ex Harrier Tom Shaw (right) and also the not so popular Michael Wylde and Ryan Charles.  Charles faced censure by Utd this week when it turned out he had appeared in court on money laundering charges and had not told the club.  He got a six month suspended sentence for his misdemeanour and also a warning about his behaviour by his club.

Following our away win at Hayes last week we're now starting to see more players return from injury.  Both Kyle Storer and Jack Byrne played in a friendly at Solihull on Tuesday but neither is expected to start against Cambridge although Storer could make the bench.

Mike Williams is still some way from fitness and won't feature but new signing Lee Hendrie should make his debut after missing the Hayes game due to an injury picked up in training on the Friday.  David Bird could be making his last appearance for us with his loan from Cheltenham coming to an end and it's believed that it may not be extended due to a glut of midfielders at the club now.

This is going to be a tough game to call.  Utd are definitely on a roll at the moment while we seem to have become a bit inconsistent.  On the other hand we hold the physcological upperhand and could easily sentence them to yet another defeat at the hands of their bogey team.  I like that possibility best of all.
