Kidderminster Harriers will need to bounce back following last weekends 2-0 defeat at table topping Wrexham but they'll have to do it without striker Marc Williams (left) after he picked up a bad ankle injury in a mid week practice game at Crewe.  Ironically he shouldn't really have been playing in a game that had been arranged as a chance for fringe players to get a game under their belts.

Marc Williams He didn't start at Wrexham and that came as a surprise to many considering that he would have been up against his previous employers and would have been eager to prove a point after being released by them last season.  Instead he came on as a second half substitute but by then it was too late and the game had been lost.

Between the two games the Harriers manager, Steve Burr, said that his reason for not playing Marc from the start was because he needed a rest but then he goes and achieves something of a fáux pás by playing him at Crewe and then getting injured.  He is expected to be on the sidelines for at least a month now.

Tomorrow we reacquaint ourselves with Ebbsfleet once more after missing out on playing them last season due to their temporary relegation to the Blue Square South two seasons ago.  They came back up at the end of last season as runners up to Braintree Town when they won their play off final against Farnborough.

This season they're struggling to make a major impression on the League although the manager, Liam Daish, has built a side that is hard to beat.  He kept the core of the side but added players like Liam Enver-Marum, Callum Willock and Joe Welch into the mix.

They'll be without a handful of players tomorrow but Daish has decided not to make his playing comeback at the age of 42 due to the temporary injury crisis that see's captain Paul Lorraine out for a while after seeing a specialist about his wrist injury.  Also missing will be Clint Easton (knee), Mike West (back) and Adam Williams with long term injuries that leaves Daish with just 15 players to pick from.

Apart from Marc Williams we could be without Luke Medley too after he pulled up with a groin injury in training yesterday.  He'll be assessed before the game but looks doubtful.  Ironically Burr sent another striker, Robert Thompson-Brown out on loan for a month to Solihull Moors earlier in the day.

We really do need to get maximum points in the next two games starting against Ebbsfleet tomorrow and then follow it up with another three against an Alfreton side that signed for the former Harriers nomad Drewe Broughton yesterday.  Back on track I reckon.
