Pearson predicts sizzling Blundell Park atmosphere for top five clash
5:00pm Thursday 7th March 2013 in News
ON-loan Grimsby Town striker Greg Pearson is predicting a brilliant atmosphere for Harriers' vital top five clash at Blundell Park on Saturday.
The Birmingham born striker knows all about playing in front of big crowds in Lincolnshire after joining them in the summer.
The 26-year-old is ineligible to play in the crucial clash for the Aggborough outfit after moving to the Reds at the end of January.
"To be fair Grimsby do get a lot of fans and they don't need many excuses to come out and support the team," commented the former Burton forward.
"Now they're challenging for promotion and have reached the final of the FA Trophy they will be out in their droves.
"But Harriers' fans will be in good form as well so I am expecting a great atmosphere on Saturday."
Pearson says there will be no divided loyalties for him ahead of vital clash of promotion chasers, although he hopes both teams can win promotion to the Football League.
While Harriers occupy second-place in the Blue Square Bet Premier, Grimsby are just behind in fourth with three games in hand.
"The fans at Grimsby have been really good to me as have everybody at the club, so I would always wish them well against any other club apart from Kidderminster.
"There won't be any divided loyalty for me, I am a Kidderminster player at the moment so I will be supporting them.
"The ideal situation is for both teams to go up this season and there is still a chance that they can do it.”
The striker also said he is starting to find his match sharpness.
Pearson only played 12 times for Grimsby, scoring twice, but for Harriers he’s started the last two matches against Ebbsfleet and Gateshead after four substitute appearances in a row.
He added: "I am loving playing at Harriers. Their style of football suits me I think and being from Birmingham it's great to be a bit closer to home.
"I am just trying to reach full match sharpness, it is quite intense playing on a Saturday and Tuesday but that's the level I want to be at.
"It's great to have scored one goal for Harriers but I want to be adding to that before the end of the season."
