Kidderminster appointed former Coventry boss Andy Thorn as Steve Burr’s replacement on Wednesday and the new manager is odds-on at 17/20 with Paddy Power to make a winning start as his team entertain Salisbury City, Stan James’s 3/1 outsiders.

The visitors are just a couple of points adrift of Harriers so the stalemate might prove popular amongst punters at 14/5 via bet365 while BetVictor rate a score draw at 7/2 and it’s 7/1 at Ladbrokes to finish one-apiece.

Also of interest to those sensing an inconclusive affair, could be Stan James’s 5/1 for the teams to be level at the end of each half and in betway’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market, Harriers are available at 7/20.

However, despite their recent wobble, Kidderminster tend to be strong on their own patch and as Salisbury don’t tend to travel too well, home advantage could prove crucial.

Subsequently, Harriers supporters might consider’s 12/5 about Thorn’s troops shading it by one or BetVictor’s 8/1, marked against a 2-1 Kidderminster triumph and Stan James price the hosts at 15/8 to be in front after both 45 and 90 minutes.

Elsewhere, combining a success for Thorn’s men with a clean sheet comes in at 21/10 (William Hill), Harriers are 15/8 in bet365’s handicaps when starting a goal behind their opponents and BetVictor offer 4/7 about any home player breaking the deadlock.

More accurately, attacking trio Amari Morgan-Smith, Anthony Malbon and Michael Gash are all 5/1 at bet365 to grab the opener while a match tally of three or more goals can be backed at 4/5 (Skybet).
