PREVIEW: Welling v Harriers
2:00pm Friday 6th September 2013 in News
CAPTAIN Kyle Storer believes new signing Amari Morgan-Smith could have an immediate impact on Harriers as they look to get back on track at Welling tomorrow (3pm ko).
The 24-year-old has joined on a short term deal and will be trying to earn a longer one by impressing manager Steve Burr.
He goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s clash in Kent.
His arrival could provide the spark needed for the Carpetmen, who are looking to bounce back after disappointing defeats against Nuneaton and Luton in the Skrill Premier.
Morgan-Smith had a five-match loan spell at Aggborough last season and Kidderminster were keen to keep him for longer only for Macclesfield to recall him abruptly.
The former Luton centre forward had been on trial and Mansfield in pre-season and the Hatters last week but he put pen to paper after working with Harriers’ squad this week.
Storer said: “We’re delighted to have Amari as part of the squad, he played well when he was here last season.
“He’s got fantastic movement, you can see it in training, he’s always moving, searching for space so we know he’s a useful player.”
The skipper also said the squad had been working hard to regain their normal attacking form after two disappointing performances.
“We know we didn’t play well enough against Luton, myself included,” admitted the skipper.
“But we’ve been working hard in training all week and we’ve got to go out and perform.
“It won’t be an easy game, Welling have been strong at home but we’ll be going out to try and get a result.”
Welling, who were promoted from the Conference South last season, have made an encouraging start to the campaign and are unbeaten at home.
They have held leaders Cambridge to a 2-2 draw and defeated Grimsby.
Harriers have been given a boost after defenders Chey Dunkley and Josh Gowling have overcome knee injuries to be available for tomorrow's clash.
Callum Gittings (ankle) and Jamie Tolley (Achilles) are out injured, while Joe Lolley looks set to be rested. Jack Byrne is also still easing himself back in after a year on the sidelines.
