STRIKER Craig Reid has been tipped to start hitting the back of the net by manager Gary Whild.

The former Newport hitman has yet to open his Vanarama Conference account for Harriers since joining the club in the summer.

But it's not for a lack of trying and seen has seen a host of chances saved by opposition keepers and had several efforts ruled out.

He may get another chance to score when Kidderminster go to newly-promoted Dover Athletic in Kent on Saturday (3pm ko).

With Nathan Blissett, Reece Styche and Michael Gash as well as Reid, Whild has plenty of options to play with up front.

"If Craig keeps playing like he is the goals from come," said the manager.

"Overall he is playing well and doing what we ask of him."

Harriers will be aiming to extend their unbeaten run at The Whites.

After three draws and two wins, they are in a decent position but will be keen to bounce back from their 2-2 draw against Chester, a game they had been leading 2-0 at half-time.

The Reds will be without Chey Dunkley, who is serving a one-match ban following his dismissal against Chester. Jamie Grimes is set to slot into central defence.

In contrast, Dover have had a testing return to the Non-League top flight after winning promotion from the Conference South and suffered a 6-1 defeat to Woking on Bank Holiday Monday.

Former Charlton academy graduate Yado Mambo joined Dover before last Monday's defeat to Woking from Ebbsfleet.

Defender Sean Raggett will serve the second of a three game suspension after being sent off for violent conduct during Dover’s 2-1 win over Eastleigh.

Ricky Modeste continues to be a doubt because of injury for Athletic, with winger Christian Nanetti set to deputise.

Fans unable to make the clash can follow all the action with The Shuttle's live match updates from 2pm, followed by build-up to the 3pm kick-off.
