Tamworth keeper praises Harriers boss Burr
7:56pm Friday 15th March 2013 in News
The Reds will be aiming to build on their fantastic win over Grimsby by notching up three points against the Lambs tomorrow (3pm ko).
Former Harriers keeper Breeden is not surprised the Reds have bounced back from losing their first five matches of the season to be one of the contenders for the title.
The shot-stopper was signed by Burr during the 2011-12 campaign and became first choice following a season-ending injury to Danny Lewis.
Harriers took the race for the play-offs down to the last game of the season when they just missed out and finished sixth.
But this campaign they have taken their season to a new level.
“Even when they lost a few early doors, I knew they would be contenders to win the league," commented Breeden.
“Steve Burr would have been quietly confident about turning it around as he is a very clever and astute manager. “I have a lot of time for him for the way he conducts himself.
“He’s top drawer and he knows how to judge a player.
“He has found some real gems from the lower leagues. Players such as Jamile Matt have gone on to play in the Football League.
“And, of course, he signed me as well, so he can spot talent!
“I’ll always respect him for the fact that he gave me a pass into full-time football.”
Former Lambs midfielder Kyle Storer begins a two-match suspension at the weekend after picking up ten yellow cards but on-loan striker Greg Pearson is available again following his ineligibility for the Mariners game.
James Vincent could be drafted into the side as a replacement although there is plenty of competition in midfield.
Striker Michael Gash is also set to make his home debut after scoring at Blundell Park.
Meanwhile, Tamworth boss Dale Belford has brought in Hinckey's promising and versatile Ben Richards-Everton.
Belford will be hoping for some of his walking wounded to return after missing seven players against Alfreton, where they were forced to play two defenders in midfied.
Former Harrier Lee Hendrie is suspended after picking up a ted card at Cambridge.
