Matt Barnes-Homer The Harriers will be hoping to build on their first win of the season at Chester tomorrow evening.  With more than a week gone since that welcome victory at home to Woking the squad have undertaken a longer than usual period of intense training.  Hopefully the kind of training needed to give us another three points in the climb to safety.

We had a friendly at home to a Birmingham City U21 side last Friday, with a 2-2 scoreline, after being told that there would be a strong team in place but as it transpired there were only a few there with Zaine Francis-Angol, Calvin Dinsley, Ben Whitfield and Matt Young starting the game and Dean Snedker on the bench.  We could have moved this game to last Saturday then as requested by Chester and by out own fans.

We'll be without Jordan Tunnicliffe for the game after it was revealed that the club also had another friendly last week, against Fleetwood, and Tunnicliffe picked up a hamstring injury that could see him out of contention for quite a while.  We have no other known injuries.

Just before the Woking game we saw a return to the club for Matt Barnes-Homer (right) and he's expected to lead the line tomorrow and probably by himself with Gurjit Singh on the bench once more.  Also coming in last week was a new goalkeeper after Jonathon Brown joined the club from Rushall Olympic and he'll be here as cover for Snedker.

Chester will be without striker Jamie McDonagh, on loan from Sheffield Utd, due to him playing for the Northern Ireland U21 side to face France and Ukraine in UEFA European Under 21 Championship qualifiers in the next two weeks.  They'll also be without midfielder Sam Hughes after he joined Evo-Stik Division One North side Witton Albion on a month long loan.

This evening they announced the signing of the nineteen year old Everton striker Calum Dyson on a month long loan deal.

This is a game that we need to win.  What with Chester struggling to get above halfway up the table, and also the incentive of beating the ex managers side too, then add in our desire to get away from the foot of the table making this a must win game for the Harriers.
