Barring a sandstorm over Nailsworth, or a swarm of locust in proportion to a country the size of Egypt, then we should be able to travel down to the, not so popular, side of the Cotswolds tomorrow and see the Harriers move a further step on our way to the play-offs and, hopefully, glory.  This game was originally to have been played over the Christmas period but their pitch suddenly became waterlogged when the referee turned up and then miraculously dried out once everyone had gone home.

Anyway that's all in the past and Forest Green are more or less up to full strength now.

They have just a couple out.  Stephen Brogan (groin), Aarran Racine (ankle) and Al Bangura (suspension) are all out while Reece Styche could come back following a knee injury.  Dale Bennett was withdrawn from the starting team against Gateshead on Saturday after he pulled up in the warm up and could miss out.

A single goal from Magno Viera was enough to beat Gateshead and keep them above us in the table while we were hammering four in at Hyde.  All three points tomorrow for us would see us move above our hosts but only on goal difference.  It's that tight at the top.

We could be without Lee Vaughan after he was reported to have said that his groin was in shreds after the Hyde game.  He'll be a big loss to us and if he is out then it could be interesting to see who takes over from him.  The favourite has to be Danny Jackman after he played in that position against Redditch recently.

Our only other injuries are to Keith Briggs with a knee injury that seems to be taking a while to clear up and Nathan Jarvis who returned to Cardiff last week for treatment to a minor injury.  He could be available to play if that has cleared up.

The last time we won at Forest Green was way back in 1998 in a meaningless cup game and we have never won a League game there.  There has to be a first time though and I strongly believe that this could be that time.
