This time round we are top of the table and if we do lose points and end up in the play-offs then we need just one point from our remaining games to ensure that.
Yesterday we struggled to beat Braintree but finally overcame them with another goal from Anthony Malbon and a well taken own goal from a Braintree defender. It was the appearance of Marvin Johnson from the bench in place of Danny Pilkington, left, that turned the game our way yet last Tuesday against Woking the roles were reversed and Marvin was removed from the game because it just wasn't working out for him.
Hopefully tomorrow it'll work out for both of them and we can get a result against a side that, at the beginning of the season - in fact every season, were expected to romp away with the title. That just hasn't panned out this time round and they sit marooned in mid table and going nowhere.
A change in management, again, was supposed to sort their deep rooted problems out and the arrival of John Still in place of Paul Buckle has seen results improve but only to become the draw specialists of the league. They drew at Cambridge on Saturday after coming from behind twice, the second time in reply to a Nathan Blissett goal, but according to Still they were far from being the side he intends them to be.
Luton will be without the injured Alex Lawless and Ronnie Henry tomorrow whilst also missing will almost certainly be Stuart Fleetwood after he was told that he can leave the club at the end of the season. The ex Hereford defender Janos Kovàcs and also the only recently signed, from Macclesfield, Arnaud Mendy were also told they could pack their bags too.
The Harriers should be at full strength once again after getting through Saturday without any obvious problems. Jack Byrne remains out long term.
This is a game that we must go all out to win if we have any hopes of remaining at the top of the table. Our only real rivals for the title, Mansfield, are at home to Gateshead tomorrow and that looks, barring a miracle, to be a home banker.
Yes, I expect us to win.
