Dino Fazlić After losing embarrassingly at Stourbridge (again) in the FA Trophy last Saturday we can now concentrate fully on the Christmas campaign to get ourselves out of the mire at the foot of the table.  Problem is that on paper we don't stand an earthly with the programme that we face.

It's going to be a case of David versus three Goliaths in current status terms.  We have leaders Cheltenham at home on Boxing Day with the follow up game at the Sexy Smile Stadium in the New Year (2nd) and turkey sandwiched in between we face second placed Forest Green at Hippy Central for an equally tough encounter.  First though we travel down to Eastleigh to try and get something from the fourth placed club (a club that CAN beat Stourbridge).

We should be more or less at full strength for the game with only Jordan Tunnicliffe and Adam Dawson out injured - yes he's back with us but injured.  Then one that will be out, but not injured, is our only creative player Dino Fazlić (right) after he got himself sent off last Saturday for a stupid, un-creative, tackle that will now see him miss three games.  Not what we really wanted at this stage of the season when we have such a tough run of games.

Eastleigh will have two players missing.  Centre back Jamie Turley has a hamstring injury that will have him still some way off returning while Dan Harding has a calf injury picked up in their Trophy win at Aldershot last week.

As last season they are going well in the league and have some excellent players at their disposal.  People like Ben Strevens, Yemi Odubade, James Constable and Jack Midson that money strapped Harriers could now only dream of.  We have a long, long way to go before we return to being the force that they have become.

As with all games this season we face another tough one and with it another run of tough games where points look to be at a premium.  Hopefully Eastleigh will be brimming with festive good will and let us have the three points.  I doubt it somehow.
