Jordan Jones The Harriers have yet another long away trip tomorrow and again we'll be going to play against a side that seem to be banging quite a few goals in lately.  On Tuesday it was Bromley where we did manage to score twice in a 3-2 defeat after they beat Torquay Utd 7-3 last weekend so to keep them down to a low figure was good from us considering all that has gone on in the past few days.  Barrow were at Macclesfield on Tuesday and they won 2-1 with both of their goals coming from Andy Cook.

Cook originally signed on loan for Barrow from Carlisle Utd in 2009 and had a further two loan spells with them before eventually signing.  He left them for Grimsby in 2012 but never settled there and re-joined the Bluebirds at the start of this season.  He is the danger man for the Harriers defenders to keep a sharp eye on.

Also playing for them is ex Harrier Dan Pilkington.  He joined up with them in July 2014 but has only played twenty five games due to always being injured, as he was with us.  He got injured in the first game of this season and on his return last Saturday was injured again just after half time.  He's doubtful.

We could have just the one injury with our top scorer Gurjit Singh having to go off during the second half at Bromley with a groin strain.  It's unlikely he'll be risked tomorrow and if he isn't then we have a new 'goalscoring wonderkid' ready to step into his shoes.

Jordan Jones (right) made his first start for us on Tuesday and grabbed both of our goals.  He signed for us from Redditch Utd at the end of last season after originally being a youth player with us.  He left us in 2010 to play for Studley and then Stourport Swifts before joining Redditch in June 2014 and up until now has made only two substitute appearances for us.  We'll need more of the same from him if we want to get out of the mess we're in.

Lathaniel Rowe-Turner has missed the last two games with illness but should be well enough to be in the squad that travels tomorrow.

Following Colin Gordons first game in charge for us as caretaker the club are actively looking for a new manager to lead the club to safety.  A few names have been mentioned so far with Neil Aspin possibly the favourite but it's doubtful he'll want to re-locate all the way down to here from Halifax and join a struggling team to boot.  Other names such as Paul Cox and Liam Daish have also been mentioned along with a few that have no experience at this level whatsoever.

We should know who the new man will be by next Saturday before the Welling game at Aggborough.

As for tomorrow then we need to take the new, for us, ideas that Colin Gordon introduced for the Bromley game and that was to pass the ball around and keep possession.  Unheard of under Gary Whild as was the 442 formation we used instead of the non working 433 that was used to such poor effect by Whild.

If we can win this game tomorrow then that could signal a new era in Harriers history.
