Lathaniel Rowe-Turner Yet another game arrives and and yet again the long suffering Harriers fans are awaiting our first win of the season.  We thought for the first forty five minutes at Barrow last week that three points was about to miraculously happen as we ripped the home side apart but then in the second half we reverted to type and produced the kind of dross we've been seeing all season so far.  The caretaker manager, Colin Gordon, has promised that the Gary Whild style of play will be consigned to the dustbin but that second half made you think the dustbin had been moved.

We went ahead in the first five minutes with Reece Styche goal from a quick break but within the same timespan in the second half Andy Cook scored a superb goal to get his side back into the game.  Luckily for us Alex Palmer did well saving their two dubious penalties to earn us a draw that looked to be slipping away.

Tomorrow we welcome Welling Utd to Aggborough and with them sitting just above the relegation zone, in eighteenth place, they should be a likely victim for this weeks attempt at three points.  The only problem is that they have won three games on the trot including an away win at second place Gateshead two weeks ago and last Saturday they beat our fellow strugglers Halifax with both of their goals coming from Sahr Kabba.  Kabba recently became the first player in the country to serve a ban for exaggerating or feigning an injury when Tranmere appealed the sending off of Richie Sutton when video evidence proved that Sutton had made no contact with the Welling striker.

Yesterday they strengthened their strikeforce with the loan signing of nineteen year old Portuguese winger Sandro Semedo from Leyton Orient until January 2016.  They don't appear to have any injury problems.

We have a couple of doubts with Lathaniel Rowe-Turner (left) missing out the last two games with a virus and Gurjit Singh out last week with a groin strain.  They should both be in contention for a return to the team tomorrow all being well.

All our games are tough now, even against teams that at one time we would have beaten easily due to the difference in status, but those days are disappearing into the past quickly now that we are seen as an easy target and basically crap.  We have to rectify this terrible situation as quickly as we can and the only way we can achieve that is to win games.  Simples!
