The Harriers will be hoping to follow up that fine win at Woking on Saturday with an equally fine win tomorrow evening at Wrexham.  Three first half goals in the space of eight minutes wrecked Wokings un-beaten home record for this season and the three scorers there, Reece Styche, Michael Gash and Kyle Storer will be hoping to get on the scoresheet once more and do the same to Wrexham.

The only black spot on the Woking victory was that we let the hosts back in too easily and allowed them to score twice before bombarding our goal in the final ten minutes in search of that elusive equaliser.  Some great goalkeeping from Danny Lewis and solid defending stopped them from achieving their quest.

We won the game without Jamie Grimes in the side after he picked up an injury against Grimsby the other week but according to the official website this evening he is now fit once more.  It's to be hoped that Gary Whild doesn't make un-needed changes to a winning side and drop a proper midfielder just to fit Grimes back in.  It's also to be hoped that he stops this pointless tinkering with the front two every game and just lets Gash and Styche get on with it.

Wrexham have just started to climb the table after being in mid to lower reaches so far.  Three wins in their last four games (Welling, Barnet and Eastleigh) have propelled them up to sixth place, two above us and they'll be hoping to climb higher by beating us.

Their 3-0 win at home to Eastleigh on Saturday marked the first full appearance of the season for the former Harrier Dean Keates.  After being out with a hamstring injury earlier in the season he was selected on Saturday and rewarded the manager with an assured performance that could mean that he'll be chosen to play against us.  Another former Harrier, Andy Bishop, scored their third goal in the win after being re-instated in the side following his request for a loan out never happened.

They'll be without Rob Evans for the game with a knee injury and also Jay Harris with a long term hip injury.  Apart from that they'll be at full strength.

Games against Wrexham are always interesting affairs and this one promises to be no different.  I'm expecting a decent partisan crowd (apart from that dick with the cam-corder), hard, cramped seats, plenty of good football from both sides and to top it all a nice two nil win for us.
