We've had some bad news going into this game and against such a strong side as Luton Town it couldn't have come at a worse time.  Yesterday the club released the news that goalkeeper Danny Lewis (left) will definitely be out for a month with a knee injury and if it's confirmed to be the dreaded cruciate injury then he could miss the remainder of the season.

Danny Lewis Lucky for us we have an able replacement in Dean Lyness and he showed that ability at Kettering last Saturday to help the lads to a ground out 1-0 win.  If Dannys' injury does prove to be long term then the manager Steve Burr will find a back up for Dean after the game tomorrow.

We could also be without Jack Byrne following the news that he hasn't trained this week because of illness but I personally think he'll be playing.  Dave Hankin continues his treatment for an ankle injury that could also see him out for a further month but we will have Steve Guinan and Kyle Storer back from suspension so the squad shouldn't look too depleted alongside Lutons massive squad.

Lying one place below us in the table they'll be without Alex Lawless following some fisticuffs with a wall last week.  He's gone and broken some bones and will be out for at least a month.  They could also be without George Pilkington, Shane Blackett, Curtis Osano and Charlie Henry who have been out injured in recent weeks but all four made a return in a friendly at Wycombe in the week and all four got through without any problems.  Dean Beckwith will be available after a three match ban.

In recent weeks the Hatters have stuttered slightly with a draw at struggling Bath City followed up with two defeats away at York City and then at home to Cambridge Utd.  They got their season back on track at home to Barrow last Saturday but they did give the visitors a goal start before hammering five past them.

We, on the other hand, have a slightly better record in the the past four games with just the one defeat.  It was a bad defeat though and we'd like to put that 5-2 defeat at Fleetwood out of our minds.

As with all games in this League this promotion chasing game will be a tough one and I think the Harriers will do well to get all three points but are fully capable of getting a draw at the minimum.
