The Harriers make the short trip, in the rush hour traffic, to Nuneaton tomorrow evening and they'll be looking for a win against the struggling North Coventry side.  Three points from this game will cement our second placed spot irrespective of what other sides below us do in their games but the most beautiful thing is that if, hopefully, Barrow beat Wrexham then we could go top of the table.

There'll be dancing in the streets of Wyre Forest on Wednesday and all the lifelong fans, and councillors, will come out of the woodwork to celebrate with us.

Kyle Storer Just as long as they remember that the season has a long way to go yet and a win at Nuneaton is a mere stepping stone.

We tried to boost our squad today with the possible signing of veteran Dele Adebola but he has now decided to join up with Wrexham instead.  I'm sure he'll love playing in the romantic, windswept, damp and cold North West tomorrow night.

We could be seeing a return to the side for Lee Vaughan but it may still be a game too soon for him and Steve Burr may feel he needs a little more time just yet.  Especially with the heavy pitches we're playing on now.  Ricky Shakes could continue in his new rôle after he has shown himself to be comfortable there in the past two games.

Keith Briggs is still a little way off returning yet so won't feature and afaik there are no other injuries.  Unless you include Nathan Jarvis who is now back at Cardiff until further notice.

We'll turn up at the Triton Showers Community Arena (thank God that's changing for next season) with the hosts on the back of two wins in a row at Barrow and home to Alfreton in the following game.  A first for them this season.

Their home record isn't too bad for a struggling side and they've only lost four times there this season.  The last reversal at home came against Southport on February 9th and previous to that a 4-2 hammering off Braintree at the end of January.

The game should see a couple of reunions for both sides.  Kyle Storer, above left, was a crowd favourite there before joining the Harriers while Steve Burr was a one time manager when they were at their old ground at Manor Way.

For Nuneaton Gavin Cowan had a short spell at Aggborough while Rob Thompson-Brown joined them from us last season but has failed to make any kind of impression there and has now joined Leamington on loan on the same day that his two month loan at Daventry came to an end.

We've shown in the last two games, FGR and Alfreton, that we can knuckle down and graft out the wins and I think we'll be seeing more of the same tomorrow at Nuneaton.  Again a good crowd is expected with a good proportion, as at FGR, being Harriers fans.

Sing loud, sing proud.
