Let's get straight to the verdict right now.  This game at Tamworth is going to end as a 0-0 draw.

Preview over.

Why would I say that after our great run of form just lately? The form that culminated in a win against Wrexham and was so convincing to everyone there, both Harriers fans, Wrexham fans and neutrals alike?

Tom Marshall Because everytime that we go to that place the other side of Brum we come back with just the single point or we lose.  In fact the last time we got more than one point there was way back in 1979.  It'd be nice to think that now our corner has been turned results wise in the League that we can now start to turn our record round at The Lamb too.

We'll have to do it without Dan Pilkington who will still be out injured having missed the game last Saturday.  Keith Briggs and Callum Gittings will be taking an enforced leave of absence due to their worthy collection of yellow cards and that will leave us with a bit of a quandary regarding team selection.

With three midfielders missing it could mean a recall to the side for Ricky Shakes to fill one space with James Vincent to fill another.  We would need a minor re-shuffle to fill the other place and that could mean Mickey Demetriou getting pushed up with Mike Williams returning to left back.

Tamworth had an unexpected win on Saturday at home to inform Dartford.  Their final goal in the 3-2 win came from the former Harrier, Lee Hendrie but afterwards he was involved in an altercation as the teams left the field between himself and the Dartford manager and then their centre half joined in pushing Hendrie over.  It's not known what it was about and who started it but we know that Hendrie has a short fuse.

There are quite a few other ex Reds at Tamworth now.  As well as Hendrie they also have Tom Marshall (left), Duane Courtney, Tommy Wright and Lloyd Kerry playing for them now.  Marshall missed the Dartford game with a foot injury but should be ok for tomorrow night.

So how do I really see this game panning out then? As I said in the opener I can only see another draw for us but after recent great results we have to come back to earth sometimes.  At least a draw would be a gentle lowering to earth but it would be great to break our duck at Tamworth with a long overdue win.
