harriers-online match preview
23rd January 2004 
At Gigg Lane
24/1/04 3:00pm
The Harriers pay a visit to to Bury this weekend hoping to put an end to this habit of throwing away three points.  Last week against Darlington we did just that and it cost us the chance to move above Bury on goal difference.

Again we'll have to do it with out our our forgotten men.  Kenny Coleman remains injured as does Adam Willis who is still suffering from the effects of his recent car accident.  There is also Lee Jenkins who will now be out for a further six weeks after the club revealed that he will have to have surgery on his damaged knee cartilage.  An injury that he had at Swansea before he came to Aggborough.

Bo Henriksen is still suffering with his groin injury and yesterday Jan Molby admitted that it's doubtful if he'll start many games.  He also said that Bo would have to wait until the end of the season before he could have remedial surgery.

Adam Murray will get another chance to shine at Gigg Lane but it'll need the rest of the side to play their part.  Last week too many players failed to raise their game and left it all to Murray to do.  At least we'll have Scott Stamps back to tighten up that left side of the field.

Bury have been through a bit of a barren spell recently.  A run of eight defeats in a row led to the dismissal of Andy Preece as manager and the eventual appointment of Graham Barrow in his place.  That was then followed by a win against Swansea and an away draw at Scunthorpe last weekend.

They have just the two players out through injury.  Lee Unsworth and the impressive Harpal Singh are both missing long term so the only other injury doubt would have been Simon Whaley.  He's been out for the past five weeks with a knee injury but should be back for our game after completing two reserve games this week.

Bury will also be without Terry Dunfield who will be serving a one match ban for a yellow card picked up against Swansea.
