Francino Francis Harriers fans will be looking forward to the visit of Tamworth tomorrow and a feast of football now that Steve Burr has told the players in no uncertain terms that Wednesday nights shocking Cup exit at the hands of Corby Town means that 90% of the squad will be playing for their futures.  The only player worth his 10% was Lee Vaughan who again played his heart out while all around him chickened out of the fight.

Burr indicated immediate changes but with a small injury hit squad he's going to find that task almost impossible.  Dean Lyness will certainly be dropping to the bench, following another unconfident performance, now that we have a new keeper at Aggborough after Tony Breeden was signed late on Wednesday evening as back up to Lyness but it looks like his chance will be coming sooner than expected.

Kyle Storer will still be missing along with Danny Lewis, Jack Byrne and Mike Williams and we could also be without Dave Hankin again after his ankle injury forced his substitution at Corby.  I don't think the squad will include Luke Medley either after it seems that Burr has now realised his signing was a mistake.  Medley could well be the first out the door.

Tamworth, who will be including former Harriers Iyseden Christie, Duane Courtney and Francino Francis (above) in the squad, will arrive at Aggborough possibly injury free with the only doubt being Courtney after he picked up an injury in their Cup win at home to Kings Lynn.  He should be fit though.

The interesting one to see will be Franky Franky.  When he was with us he was used as a striker but now with Tamworth he seems to be played more as a defender.  He always was a big lad so that could be his ideal position because he never scored any goals for us.

Tamworth have crept above us in the table recently and that's solely down to our poor form at the moment and not that Tamworth have suddenly turned into world beaters overnight.  We need to reverse those positions by five o'clock on Saturday by becoming world beaters ourselves, once more.
