The Harriers will be hoping for a more civilised game tomorrow when Tamworth roll into town.  Last Saturday Wrexham came to Aggborough without much intention of playing football and ended up being an embarrassment to themselves and non league football with their continual moaning, diving and harassment of the referee.  Thankfully we had the last laugh with an emphatic 3-1 victory that kept us pressuring the leaders, Cambridge Utd, after they could only draw at Barnet.

Against Tamworth we now have the opportunity to pressure them more although Utd are at home to Woking and should overcome that hurdle without any problem.

We should be at full strength for the game now that Callum Gittings has been passed fit once more.  He failed to make the cut last Saturday after picking up a knee injury against Macclesfield two weeks ago but he's now fit and raring to go again.  Jack Byrne returned to the side last Saturday after being out injured for a month.

Tamworth are struggling near to the bottom of the table at the moment, although they have only lost once in the last six games, but they are progressing nicely through the FA Cup and had one of the choice draws of the second round when they came out of the bag just before Bristol City did.  That game was instantly chosen to be televised and Tamworth will now collect a handsome fee and worldwide recognition.

They'll be without defender Jack Evans for our game.  He has a knee injury while his replacement, Wayne Thomas, will also miss the game due to a one game suspension.  Also missing will be a third defender, Jordan Rose, but the Lambs have already bought in another defender, Jordan Keane, on loan from Stoke City as cover and he will step into the breach on Saturday.

Nippy little striker Lateef Elford-Alliyu, who was a bit of a handful during the first half of our 3-0 win at their place in September has been out with a virus for the past two weeks but has now returned to training.

I think Tamworth will find us a little too strong for them and we could well see a repeat of that 3-0 win tomorrow.
