Josh Gowling The Harriers will be in front of the cameras tomorrow evening when BT arrive at Aggborough to take in the Harriers v Welling game.  This will be a rare occurrence for us even though we have finished in the higher echelons of the League for quite a few years now without getting the kind of coverage that Luton, Grimsby and Forest Green ever got.  This game also marks the overdue first appearance in front of the cameras for our visitors Welling since they gained promotion into the Premier last season.

We will also be sharing the game with our friends/rivals Hereford from down the road. They'll be holding a silent protest about the plight of their club although I don't think it means silent in chanting some songs about Hereford but I do hope they see sense and not try to take over the game.

We'll be without Josh Gowling (right) for the game due to him being the first of our players to reach five bookings and he'll miss just the one game so expect Jamie Grimes will no doubt be re-called to the starting eleven.  Kyle Storer is on four yellows and if he picks one up tomorrow, which is quite possible, then he'll miss Saturdays game at Barnet.

We should have no injury problems unless you count Josh O'Keefes thigh strain that he picked up during his loan spell at Telford.  We Harriers fans will be hoping for some kind of sign that manager Gary Whild has been picking up on the unrest following that dismal result against said Telford at Aggborough on Saturday but actually it wasn't just against Telford but against most clubs so far this season.  If GW thinks that fans are going to continue to pay good money to watch utter tripe like that again then he's in the wrong kind of show business.  It just wasn't good enough and hasn't been for a while now.

It's hard to know what the answer is with such a small squad at his disposal but other clubs with a smaller budget than us have a larger squad, such as Welling, and seem to play the attractive football that we seem to have lost sight of.

It's not known what injuries Welling have but they will have Jake Gallagher missing after he received his fifth booking of the season in their draw at Chester.
