3:00pm Sat 25 Feb 12: Good afternoon Harriers fans! To paint a picture, it's a lovely sunny day at Twerton Park. Hopefully the sun shines on Harriers as they look for their first win since Alfreton a month ago. Steve Burr has made two changes to his starting line-up. Callum Gittings replaces Dan Bradley, while Ryan Rowe starts his first game for Harriers since his capture from Stourbridge. He'll be up front with Anthony Malbon and Jamille Matt in a youthful but undeniably exciting trio. Mickey Demetriou and Lee Hendrie are still injured.
