There are just three games now until the end of the season proper and then we can look towards celebrating our winning the title or, if we fail in that, our mini season of play-off games.  In last nights game Wrexham did the Harriers a massive favour in coming from a goal down at halftime against Mansfield to win 2-1 at the end.  That result left Mansfield with one less game in hand but still just the one point behind us.

Josh Gowling We play Wrexham ourselves next Saturday and a win against them could be a strong possibility after a poor game from them even though they won.  Add in that Mansfield travel to Barrow tomorrow and that's never an easy place to get a result from especially as Barrow are fighting to avoid relegation.

First we have to ensure we finish top of the pile and to do that we have to win our remaining games starting with Lincoln City tomorrow afternoon.

This game has been a long time coming considering we opened the season with a 1-0 defeat at Sincil Bank.  It all seems so long ago now and it also seems a long time since our poor start to the season ended at Cambridge.  Since then our run has been tremendous and now we find ourselves on the cusp of glory.

Last weekend we finished the Bank Holiday programme with a win at home to Braintree and then a stunning first ever win against Luton Town, made even more stunning by winning at Kenilworth Rd.  Both games saw Anthony Malbon scoring and we'll all be wanting him to continue in his great run of form.

There weren't any injuries reported following those games so we should have a full compliment to call up on.  Lincoln also seem to have very few to nil injuries with the only possible exception being Dan Gray after he was injured just before their goal less draw at home to Cambridge on Monday.  They will have Gomez Dali available again now that his three match ban has ended.

One player who'll be looking forward to the game is Josh Gowling (above right).  He left them a few weeks into the season after falling out with the management team and joined up with the Harriers following to Geohaghon debacle.  His joining gave us the rock we needed at the back and his partnership with Chey Dunkley has seen them becoming probably the best centre pairing in the Conference.

I think that last nights result in Wales will now spur our players on, knowing that the title really is in sight now, and they'll make sure that Lincoln are sent home soundly beaten.
