PREVIEW: Luton v Harriers
12:00pm Friday 20th April 2012 in Harriers
HARRIERS assistant manager Gary Whild wants his in-form side to maintain their good run at promotion rivals Luton as the battle for the play-offs enters the crucial final few weeks.
The Aggborough outfit, who are unbeaten in seven games, can seal a spot in the end of season play-off party with two more wins.
With tomorrow's opponents Luton also chasing a return to the Football League, Harriers are focused on what could prove to be a vital result.
Harriers then complete the season at home to Mansfield on Saturday, April 28 (1pm kick-off), who have already sealed a top-five place.
With the prospect of six more points sealing Harriers' first time in the play-offs since their relegation seven years ago, Whild wants the players to concentrate on the task in hand.
“Two wins finishes it off and with another three you end up in the Football League – it is as simple as that," commented Whild.
“We’re all looking forward to it and let’s hope that is the case for us.
“That’s how we’ve adopted it over the last few weeks – I know it is a cliché but you concentrate on the next game and doing well in that; keeping the performances of the players high and the good run going.
“If you can get that right then the results will look after themselves.”
Winger Marvin Johnson, who missed Saturday's win over Kettering, is expected to have recovered from his knock but Jack Byrne has yet to get over his hamstring injury. Meanwhile, defender Michael Briscoe still has a back problem.
Harriers are set to be backed by at least 700 Harriers fans, with 10 coaches set to make the trip from Worcestershire to Bedfordshire tomorrow.
