Jared Hodgkiss On the back of Tuesday nights massive 6-0 win the Harriers fans will be hoping for more of the same in tomorrows FA Cup game against that victim of our firepower, Tamworth.

It will be false to hope that Tamworth will roll over and we could get the same result again because they'll have gone home, licked their wounds and will come back to Aggborough primed for revenge.  We need to be ready to adapt from our attacking game to a more careful approach.

Then again they could be just as crap as they were the other night and we can rack up another cricket score.

On Tuesday we were a joy to behold with a slightly poor Aggborough audience watching a masterclass of passing and movement.  After weeks of waiting for a repeat of the 6-1 Curzon scoreline if finally came as we clicked into a higher, unstoppable gear.  Six goals from six different players showed that we do have the talent to score goals and now we can certainly expect more of the same.

Because of our demotion to the North we now have to enter the FA Cup sponsored by Arsenals sponsors at an earlier stage meaning we now have to play two more games to reach the 1st round proper.  Remember the days when that was an automatic for us?

We should be injury free now that Jared Hodgkiss (right) is fully recovered.  I'm not sure how many subs we're allowed at this stage but in previous seasons we got seven so Hodgkiss might make the bench.  Tamworth didn't do enough to pick up any injuries on Tuesday so I'll assume they're injury free too.

It goes without saying that we have to win this game.  Doesn't matter if it's a wipeout or a tight one goal affair.  It doesn't matter for the money with a paltry £4,500 on offer for the winner.  It's for the good of the club and the fans that we don't turn in another horror show like we did at Stourbridge last season and we progress to the next round un-scathed.
