Tahvon Campbell Today, in reaction to our shocking season so far and our most recent defeat at home to Lincoln City, the Harriers Head of Football Operations, Gary Whild, was dismissed from his job as manager of KHFC.  Confused? so are we.

The Head Coach Tim Flowers denied ever accepting the job of Head Coach and didn't want anything to do the the boards can of worms in the first place.  Confused? so are we.

Now rudderless Harriers travel to hot shots Bromley tomorrow evening knowing that they are already on a hiding to nothing.  On Saturday our host smashed seven goals past equally rudderless Torquay Utd in a 3-7 thriller the shocked the Nationwide National league making four wins in a row for the South London side.  Something we could only dream of.

In the interim Colin Gordon (Football Development Director) takes charge of the ship and will be hopeful of getting something from the game with a bunch of players that seemingly no longer want to play for the club.  Assuming that was the reason for that gutless, spineless display against Lincoln once we had gone a goal down.

In that game only the young loanees stood out with Kevin Toner making a decent debut for us on loan from Villa while the two West Brom lads - Andre Wright and Tahvon Campbell (right) tried hard but had little support including from the ex, err, manager after he went to the press following the game complaining that they were to selfish and trying too many step overs when they should have been heading straight for goal.  Of the older heads only Kelvin Langmead and Reece Styche seemed to have anything about them but it needs the whole team to play together if they want to win together.

We'll have Luke Maxwell back with us tomorrow evening following the third and final part of his red card from the Braintree game.  Who makes way for him will be interesting with Lathaniel Rowe-Turner probably returning to the side too following his illness that caused him to miss the game at the weekend.  Jordan Tunnicliffe did well enough in his position and it would be unjust to drop him just because LRT is fit once more.

We have no known injuries in the squad so that only leaves Rob Taylor.  Can anyone confirm if he's still with us because he doesn't seem to be training with us or appearing at the club on matchdays.  I'll be assuming that he's left us without kicking a ball in anger very soon even though he could be the creative midfielder we're waiting for.

We have played Bromley once before in the second round of the 2012 FA Trophy and lost, down there, 1-0.  A missed penalty by Anthony Malbon in the last minute saw us exit the contest early doors but it didn't really matter because that was the season we finished in the play-offs.

After years of knocking on the Conference South door Bromley finally gained automatic promotion last season and are now having a typical first season for many promoted teams lying ninth in the table with five wins and seventeen points.

The manager, Mark Goldberg, has made just a few improvements to his promoted team and bought in Alex Wall from Luton along with the managers son Bradley from Dagenham & Redbridge.  Their leading scorer Moses Emmanuel has six goals in the campaign so far including the three he scored at Torquay on Saturday.  That makes him dangerous and we'll need to keep him quiet tomorrow if we hope to get anything from the game.

We'll be lucky.
