Dan Sweeney The Harriers go to the brink again tomorrow evening at home to Halifax after teetering near the edge at Welling on Saturday.  Amazingly we managed to pull ourselves back at the last minute and, with two goals from Kelvin Langmead and James McQuilkin, we returned from Kent with all three points and another days reprieve.

Our guests tomorrow, Halifax, are also struggling along with us at the wrong end of the table and a win for them could see them safe.  They should have been safe at home to Aldershot on Saturday but somehow lost 2-0 to a side at the wrong end of the form table.  Now they'll be hoping to achieve that safety at our expense and send us tumbling into the Conference North.

In an effort to add some extra firepower to our new found urge to stay up we have recalled Dan Sweeney (right) from his loan spell at Halesowen Town where he bagged three goals in ten games.  With Gurjit Singh and Evan Garnett not coming up to expectations Sweeney is seen by Colin Gordon to be the answer to our lack of firepower problems.  We'll see.

We'll still be without Arthur Gnahoua tomorrow as he recovers for a little longer from his ankle problem and we should have no other injuries although Langmead took a knock at Welling that left him limping for a while.

Halifax will be without Sam Walker following his knee injury picked up against Barrow in their 4-1 defeat two weeks ago but they could have Matthew Brown back for them after his recovery from an ankle injury four weeks ago.  They have a popular former Harrier in their side but Dino Fazlić hasn't made much of an impression yet due to his lack of fitness.  That seems strange after we have been told that our team is the fittest out there.

With an eye on the forthcoming FA Trophy Final against Grimsby Town Halifax could be excused from trying too hard to beat us tomorrow but I can't really see them sacrificing league safety for a bit of tin so I think they'll be giving us a tough test.  It's up to us to not go down in a blaze of glory but to stay up with an heroic fightback and the way to do that is to win.
