How we didn't win that game is something of a mystery and could be put down to a lack of firepower upfront. Fact: Craig Reid last scored a goal against tomorrows opponents, Altrincham, in the corresponding home fixture back in September and hasn't scored since. That tells me that we're in desperate need of someone that can actually score goals on a regular basis.
To help with the problem Gary Whild was talking about bringing a loan player in but the deadline for that closed yesterday so we seem to have missed out there. Reece Styche was re-called from his loan at Tamworth on Wednesday evening so we do have another option there then. Yesterday it was also reported by the Luton press that on loan midfielder Matt Robinson would be going back after tomorrows game so that'll be a big, big loss although we do have Kyle Storer to call on once more now that he's returned from injury.
It's good to see the team and fans all pulling in the right direction now following the upsets at the fans forum three weeks ago. Still waiting to hear from upstairs though.
Harriers fans will have been saddened to hear this week of the news that our former defender Mike Williams has been forced to hang his boots up after being diagnosed with arthritis in both his hips. He left us two seasons ago to join up with Altrincham but found his time there blighted by injury and now we now the reason why. It goes without saying that Harriers fans wish him well in whatever he does in the future.
Alty will be without David Leather following his dismissal at Wrexham last Saturday for a two footed tackle. Alty recovered with the help of two reds for the home side that saw them come from two goals down to win the game 3-2. The previous Saturday they also gained a credible draw at home to Grimsby so they'll not be the pushover that their lowly league position suggests.
I have no team news yet for Altrincham other than the absence of Leather but this is a game that I would expect to get a result from. Considering we're both in a run of form at the present time then I'd go for a share of the points.
