The Harriers will be on the road to Ebbsfleet Utd tomorrow looking for their third win in a row and quite possibly more goals from Rowe.

Our season has seen a resurgence in recent weeks and that can only be down to a more solid defence thanks to our centre half pairing of Josh Gowling and Chey Dunkley and, in no small part, to the re-found scoring form of Ryan Rowe.  His four goals in the last two games have seen the side climb out of the relegation zone and not before time too.

Tom Sharpe Ryans season had gone sour when he found himself dropped from the side due to a lack of form but it wasn't really just him with the whole team going through a terrible time.  Rumours were going round that there had been a behind the scenes bust up but if there had it doesn't show now and that can all be put behind him.  Now he'll be hoping to make it three games in a Rowe that he's got onto the score board.

Richard Peniket will be back for us after he picked up an injury prior to the Macclesfield win last Saturday so the only other injuries are to Jack Byrne and Kyle Storer although Kyle is now back in training following his minor op the other week.  At least Tom Sharpe (left) is now finally coming back from his time out of the game due to a cruciate ligament injury and he's been sent out on indefinite loan to Hinckley Utd to gain him match fitness and, maybe, a return to the side in the New Year.

Ebbsfleet are going through the same torrid time that we have experienced and are well and truly struggling near the bottom of the table with just two wins and three draws.  One of those wins, last month, did come at home to Mansfield Town though so they can't be dismissed too easily.

They have just signed the Grimsby Town midfielder Louis Soares on a one month loan after he failed to make the expected level at Blundell Park and had hardly featured for them after his high profile signing from Hayes & Yeading last season.

Featuring for us could be Ricky Shakes against his former employers.  He'll probably come on from the bench, late on, has he has done since he joined us during the close season.  He hasn't really been given a fair crack of the whip though.

There is no news of any Ebbsfleet players out injured so I can only assume they'll have a fully fit side.  This is a game that I think we can win and win well.  I'm looking forward to seeing us higher up the table come five o'clock on Saturday evening.
