Josh Ezewele The Harriers head for already relegated Altrincham tomorrow, Easter Monday, knowing that they won't be facing a team that are going to go down without a fight.  Although they now have little to play for, apart from honour, they put three past Curzon Ashton on Friday to record their third away win of the season.  Luckily for us they don't quite have as good a record at Moss Lane having only won once there and that came against basket case Worcester City in February when they beat them 2-0.

We still can't go there expecting the formality of a win though because our away form is nothing short of shocking as shown when we lost at Stalybridge last week.  We can go there comforted in the knowledge that a draw would leave us needing just one more point from the final two games to guarantee a play off place while a win would see us home and dry.

We could be without defender Josh Ezewele (right) for the game after he was injured early in the first half against Boston and went straight down the tunnel for treatment.  Tyrone Williams replaced him and could be in there again tomorrow with Jared Hodgkiss also mysteriously missing on Friday (hence Ezewele playing) and no news as to why.

Both Liam Truslove and Elton N'Gwatala returned to the squad for the Boston game with Elton scoring the only goal to give us the points.  Arthur Gnahoua didn't make the cut though and he'll be given the once over tomorrow to see if he can take any part.

Altrincham were one of the four teams to come down with us from the Conference National - Halifax and Welling being the other two - and have fared the worst.  Both Halifax and ourselves are battling to get promoted back while in the National South Welling sit just below halfway.  Sadly Alty's highest placing this season was on the opening day when they were in eighth place but then drifted into the relegation places from the end of August onwards and have been rock bottom since the end of October when Worcester City (them again) beat them 3-0 at the Vic.

In the win against Curzon on Friday it was the former Harrier Jake Moult that scored the first two of their three goals with the third coming from Simon Richman.  It's not known who was missing for that game or who will be missing for them tomorrow.

With a day off work for most people, and a comparatively short journey, we should take a decent following to Moss Lane so we need to get behind the lads and roar them on to victory and the play-offs.
