Mark Creighton The Harriers face one of the toughest opponents you could wish to meet tomorrow evening when second placed Wrexham come to town for a game that had been re-arranged from the beginning of the month.

It was on the 4th that we should have played them but that game was postponed because of our involvement in the FA Trophy.  Even then that game too, against Luton, was also called off because of the weather so at least our friends from over the border didn't have a wasted journey.

Wrexham, along with Fleetwood, have been the main pacemakers in the League all season and, apart from the first day of the season, they have never dropped below third place.  In comparison Fleetwood didn't climb to the top two spots until October was out.

The Dragons come to us on the back of a 4-1 home win against struggling Hayes in a game many of their fans are proclaiming as one of the most ruthless displays in years from their side.  Us, on the other hand, are going through something of a barren patch points and goals wise and, following Steve Guinans last gasp goal against Lincoln on Saturday, we have failed to win a League game since Alfreton a month ago.

We had a couple of men missing against Lincoln and that got worse during the game when new boy Marvin Johnson went off before halftime with a foot injury.  The other newer boy, Ryan Rowe, came on for him and struggled slightly but it did all happen before he expected to make his debut.

Johnson could be ok to make tomorrow night and hopefully Jack Byrne will be too.  He missed out on Saturday due to a flu bug picked up overnight but with plenty of Lemsip he could make an appearance.  Anthony Malbon has also missed the last couple of games too and he too should be on his way back soon.

One of the scorers in Wrexhams win over Hayes was former Harrier Mark Creighton (left).  He had pushed himself up, something he used to do with us, and met a perfect cross to bury a perfect header beyond the reach of the Hayes keeper.  We'll need to be on our guard defensivley to stop him being a threat to our goal.

Another former Red, our version, could miss the game.  Dean Keates picked up an injury in training on Friday and could be a doubt as could Danny Wright with an elbow injury.

As first said this is a game against tough opponents and it's going to be a tough game to get a result from in front of two partisan sections of the crowd.  I hope we finish on top and get back into winning form but I think we're more than likely looking at a share of the spoils for both sides.
