PREVIEW: Peterborough v Harriers
12:00pm Tuesday 14th January 2014 in Harriers
HARRIERS can expect a huge travelling army of fans to get behind them at London Road when they tackle League One Peterborough United in tonight’s FA Cup Third Round replay (7.45pm ko).
Over 500 tickets have been sold to Kidderminster supporters in anticipation that they can pull off an upset.
Kidderminster drew 0-0 at Aggborough but had chances to win the game, while League One United were denied by the woodwork three times in a mad ten second period.
But there is a huge motivation for both sides, with £67,000 for tonight’s winners and the chance to play Premier League Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Fourth Round.
New boss Andy Thorn knows all about FA Cup shocks, having been part of the Wimbledon side that stunned all-conquering Liverpool in 1988 and reaching the final with Crystal Palace.
"It's absolutely fantastic support," said Manager Andy Thorn.
"To have that many fans making the journey to support the lads is great and without a doubt it will make a real difference."
Harriers have no new real injury or suspension problems to contend with and the gaffer was clear in his approach to the tie.
He added: "It's going to be a fantastic night for us and we'll go there with no real expectations but we'll have had a couple of days to work on a game plan and hopefully we can see it through like we did [on Saturday].
"We're not going there to lay down, that's for sure.
"They're a good side, well managed and have the fire-power and everything else but I am pleased with the group of players I've got and we'll go there and see what happens."
United will be without play maker Lee Tomlin, who was shown a red card in their 2-1 loss at Swindon.
