Burr relishing County challenge

Kidderminster Shuttle: Burr relishing County challenge Burr relishing County challenge

HARRIERS boss Steve Burr is relishing his full of confidence new side's next big challenge when they entertain leaders Newporty County tomorrow.

The Aggborough outfit are the Blue Square Bet Premier's form team after winning the last four league games and losing just once in 16 matches.

But they face a Newport side which ended a lean spell of form with a 3-1 win over Gateshead last week to rise to the top of the league.

Harriers will be aiming to seal a Welsh double after beating Wrexham at home last weekend.

Burr enthused:“These are the type of games you really look forward to – there should be another good crowd here.

“It was a great atmosphere against Wrexham last weekend and it was nice to speak to supporters and Directors after the game who thoroughly enjoyed the game and the way we’re playing.

“It will be another test for us on Saturday against Newport who will come here full of confidence

“But there’s no team at the minute, I wouldn’t think, in this division who has more confidence than we do and we’re looking forward to every game at the moment and they can’t come quickly enough.”

With Marvin Johnson set to be out six weeks with a toe fracture, Danny Pilkington could be called into the squad after recovering from a thigh injury.

Ricky Shakes, who made a fine impact as a substitute at Tamworth, could also be included.

Callum Gittings and Keith Briggs are also available after serving one-match bans in mid-week.
