Arthur Gnahoua The Harriers arrive at Aggborough for the first home game of the new season with a fantastic three points in the can and a massive six goal haul from Saturdays opening game at Curzon Ashton.  I was having to follow the game on Twitter from afar and it was an un-believable, ecstatic experience watching those players names popping up with 'GOAL' next to them.  It seemed to be never ending.

But we have to come back down to earth and realise that the remaining games in this long season will not be as easy as that one.  Brackley will be a tougher cookie.

At this early stage we lead the table and the goalscoring charts but sadly we don't have the leading goalscorer, yet, but give Arthur Gnahoua (right) time and he'll get there after scoring two of our goals.  That went to Tom Denton who hit a hat trick for Halifax.

We'll be without Wayne Thomas who will be serving part of his suspension from last season when he was with Worcester City while injuries to Dan Sweeney and Kennedy Digie will force them to sit out the game too.  We appear to have no injuries from the Saturday game.

Brackley started their campaign with a 0-0 draw at home to Tamworth in a somewhat lacklustre game of few chances but what there were went the hosts way.  Brackley have a small squad with no real stand out names and only the former Worcester man Connor Gudger will be known to most Harriers fans.

The manager Kevin Wilkins knows this league well having had previous with Nuneaton and Wrexham.  At the end of last season they underwent a massive clearout and have only bought in a handful of replacements with Claudio Dias from Barton Rovers, Shawn Richards from AFC Rushden and David Pitt from Ascot Utd.  No, I can't say they sound familiar.

I expect us to be able to gain another three points tomorrow evening but Brackley are not going to be an easy pushover.  I don't see us blasting home six goals again just yet but it would be nice if we could.
