Scunthorpe Utd
At Aggborough
16/9/03 7:45pm
After a disappointing run of results in recent weeks the Harriers have a great chance of all three points tomorrow night when they take on Scunthorpe at Aggborough.

The signs were there on Saturday against Macclesfield that the midfield are starting to perform as they should and with the release today of Sean Flynn it seems that Brit thinks the same.  We now have strength in depth there and it's just up front where there needs to be some improvement.

Brit has hinted that he may be bringing in a new striker on loan this week.  No idea who it could be yet but it needs to be soon.

John Williams is obviously not the answer as the replacement for Drewe Broughton and I feel that when a new face does arrive then Big John will be on his way too.  Gary Birch from Walsall is still in the frame but with their downturn in form Colin Lee may want to keep him there just in case.

Adam Willis will be returning to the side after his one match ban but that does seem a bit hard on Adie Smith who turned in one of his best ever performances last weekend.  Adie will more than likely be on the bench.

Apart from that I expect it to be a repeat of Saturdays starting line-up.

Scunthorpe are also going through a bit of a barren spell and were lucky to get a result against a weakened Swansea last weekend.  They missed a third minute penalty and then defensive errors gifted the Swans both their goals.

They should be at full strength after welcoming back Peter Beagrie and Matt Sparrow for the Swansea game but Kevin Sharp, who missed the penalty, is likely to be dropped.

As I said at the top I expect us to win this one and see us start to climb the table again.  If we don't??
