Storer: We've got nine cup finals
CAPTAIN Kyle Storer believes Kidderminster Harriers have nine cup finals to turn their Blue Square Bet Premier title dreams into a reality.
The Aggborough outfit are on a high after Saturday’s excellent win over fellow championship contenders Grimsby Town.
Steve Burr’s troops are currently in third place, three points behind the top two sides, Wrexham and Mansfield.
The Reds had been level on points with those sides on Saturday evening, but both used mid-week games in hand to good effect with victories over Lincoln and the Mariners to edge ahead of the chasing pack.
While Harriers have the least matches left of all the top-five to play, this is the most open title race in years and looks set to go down to the final day.
Burr’s troops will be looking to build on their Grimsby success when they entertain mid-table Midlands rivals Tamworth on Saturday (3pm ko), before another top of the table clash at Newport County on Tuesday (7.45pm ko).
Midfielder Storer will miss both clashes because of a two-match ban after collecting his 10th yellow card of the season at the weekend.
“We’ve got nine cup finals left and there is no let up,” said the skipper.
“At this stage of the season, draws are not good enough, we’ve got to be winning games.
“I am not even thinking about the play-offs, I want to win the league.
“The title race is so open and at this stage any one of five teams can win it, and I am hoping this will be Harriers’ year.”
Storer and keeper Danny Lewis were both rewarded for their efforts this week with new deals, which secures them at the club until the end of the 2014-15 campaign.
The duo have came through the lower ranks of non-league to cement themselves as full-time professionals and senior players at the club.
“The club is close to my heart to it is great to have been offered a new deal,” added Storer.
“At my age security is important but not as much as playing well for Harriers.
“It’s a honour to get a new deal and I want to make sure I maintain the high standards I have set myself this season.”
Meanwhile, Harriers have alerted fans that next Tuesday’s clash at Rodney Parade against Newport is an all-ticket affair.
The club have been allocated 400 spaces for the game in Wales and tickets can be purchased from Aggborough or by calling 01562 823931.
The Reds’ travelling support has swelled as the club enhanced their title hopes, with 252 committed supporters making the 320 mile round trip to North Lincolnshire on Saturday.
