The Harriers come up against Alfreton Town at Aggborough tomorrow and will be hoping to put the midweek defeat at Woking behind them by taking all three points in this game against the first club to beat us this season.  Admittedly it was only the second game in and the team were still finding their feet and 'gelling' but it was also probably one of our better performances of the season but we still lost 3-1.

As usual in games against Alfreton it was former harriers players that did the damage and in addition to Dan Bradley scoring his usual goals against us, two in this game, Tom Shaw also added the third goal to send the Harriers home pointless.

We'll be without Lee Vaughan (below right) for the game after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season at Woking but the two players that missed that game for the same reason, Lee Fowler and Kyle Storer, will most definitely return to the side after those that stood in for them failed miserably.

Lee Vaughan Who replaces Vaughan at right back is anyones guess but the most obvious choice would be Callum Gittings after he stood in for him on many occasions last season but he is playing out of his skin in midfield in the past four games and Steve Burr may want him to continue in that position.  The next obvious choices would be either Danny Jackman or Jamie Grimes but they're both left sided players.

Jack Byrne missed out on Tuesday with, yet again, another flare up of his hamstring injury of long standing.  Sadly it looks like this problem is not going to go away and his days seem to be numbered at Aggborough if no remedy can be found.

Alfreton could be without Nick Fenton and Josh Law to injury but the aforementioned Bradley could return from injury after he played in their Derbyshire Cup defeat against Heanor Town in midweek.

They still have a load of other ex Harriers there too with Ross Atkins lining up in goal, with Michael Wylde and John McGrath in defence.

Alfreton have been on the edge of the play-offs, or thereabouts, for most of the season except for a bit of a blip in mid October.  They have picked up again but their away from is as almost as bad as ours with just the three victories away from home and no draws.

I think that form should continue on Saturday and the Harriers, should, be ending the game with a welcome victory.
