STRIKER Jamille Matt believes Harriers’ impressive form will send out a chilling message to Boxing Day opponents Hereford United.
Kidderminster play their fierce local rivals for the first time in six years on Wednesday on the back of a six-game winning streak, which has put them back in contention for the play-off spots in the Blue Square Bet Premier.
Saturday’s 5-1 demolition of Dartford, in which Matt scored a decisive double, confirmed them as the form team in the league.
“I don’t think anyone will be looking forward to playing us at the moment,” commented the striker, who has scored six goals since his return to action after an enforced nine-month break.
“I think Hereford will look at our record of six wins on the bounce and be wary of us.
“We don’t fear anyone one, we’re looking forward to the next game.”
Defender Josh Gowling is not expected to have shaken off a knock picked up during Saturday’s victory.
Harriers have signed former Stourbridge defender Sam Smith. The defender was highly rated but was released after falling out with the Glassboys last week.
Hereford did not play at the weekend because of their league clash at Ebbsfleet being postponed because of torrential rain.
The Bulls boast two former players in striker Sean Canham and midfielder Brian Smikle.
Fans unable to make the derby can keep up with the action with the Shuttle’s live match blog on Boxing Day.
