The Harriers will be playing their third game of the week tonight when they take on relegated Aldershot Town in front of the cameras at Aggborough.  Saying it's our third game is a bit mis-leading anyway because we would have played tomorrow anyway so what difference would a couple of hours make?

We'll be wanting to build on Tuesday evenings emphatic win against Halifax and Joe Lolley will also be hoping for another start while we'll be hoping for another finish just like the one we saw when Lee Fowlers pitch wide cross was collected superbly by the youngster and then finished off even more superbly when he left the Halifax keeper rooted to the spot on wonderment.

Also hoping to start will be Kyle Storer now he is expected to be fit following his injury picked up at Tamworth.  Two that will certainly will be missing are Chey Dunkley and Jamie Tolley with Chey out for possibly another three weeks while Tolley has aggravated the injury that has been with him since the opening day at home to Gateshead.

We also had three players report back injured after the Tuesday game.  Jack Byrne, Callum Gittings and Michael Gash all picked up knocks with Jacks looking the most worrying having only just returned from injury again after returning from last seasons bad injury.  One has to worry that this isn't going to be a career threatening consequence of missing last season.

Aldershot, who were relegated from the Football League last season, were deducted ten points for entering administration but they have done remarkably well to claw back that penalty and move seven points into the black.  If it wasn't for that punishment they would be sitting healthily in tenth place right now.

At the start of the season they had hardly a player to their name and at one stage it looked like they wouldn't have been able to muster a squad for the opening day.  They managed that though thanks to helpful loans from clubs higher up the ladder and their own youth system.

One notable loanee that has come in this week is Lewis Young.  He's the younger brother of Manchester United's Ashley Young.

They have a couple of injuries with one that's a shame for Harriers fans that watched a masterclass from Glenn Morris when he played for Leyton Orient in our final game of the 2001-02 season.  The youngster was still at school when he single-handily kept out a rampant Harriers attack.  Morris left Orient to join Southend a few seasons ago then joined the Shots at the beginning of this season but is now out injured and they have loaned in Nick Pope from Charlton to cover for him.

They'll also be without Joe Oastler with an ankle injury and also Adam Mekki with a long term injury.

This game tonight will be an excellent chance for the Harriers to garner three more points and also to show the world? how brilliant we are.

Only joking folks but I do think we could win this if we play as well as we did, in spells, against Halifax.  We might even get to see another wonder goal.
