Match preview Vs Forest Green Rovers

Following a mini run of two games without scoring Harriers fans will be hoping that will all change tomorrow with the visit of old sparring partners Forest Green to Aggborough.  Against Aldershot over a week ago we failed to find the net after having fifteen shots on goal with nine of those on target.  At Chester on Saturday that statistic had dropped down to eleven shots with only four on target.

Probably three of those four came in the final twenty minutes when Joe Lolley came onto the pitch and proceeded to take City apart.  Sadly we may have to do without the Iceman tomorrow following a groin strain in training this morning.  Michael Gash also got injured in training the day before the Chester game and he could be out for a few weeks more yet.  What are we doing wrong on the training ground?

Mickey Demetriou and Chey Dunkley are both long term injuries and will definitely miss out tomorrow.  Hopefully that'll be it for injuries so I hope they're not having training in the morning because we might be without a few more by kick off.

FGR were expected to be amongst the front runners this season but, so far, that just hasn't happened for them.  The chairman, Dale Vince, has thrown loads of carrots and other tempting morsels into the player pot but so far they don't seem to have clicked as they were expected to.

They bought back Andy Mangan from Fleetwood after he failed to do anything for them and also signed Matthew Barnes-Homer from Macclesfield after he more or less refused to play for them anymore.  Danny Wright also signed for FGR from Wrexham after he was offered better money so with all that fire power you should expect more from them.

They do have quite a few injuries, like us, and will be without hamstring victims Jamie Turley and Dale Bennett while Eddie Oshodi has glandular fever and probably won't be able to walk, let alone play.  Matthew Taylor and Reece Styche are both out with knee injuries.

Even with both sides racked with injury problems I would still expect them to both put out the strongest side possible but I think we'll still be too strong for them.

I'm just worried as to where the goals will be coming from.
