PREVIEW: Harriers v Braintree
1:00pm Friday 21st February 2014 in News
HARRIERS will be aiming to end their four-game winless run and kick-start their play-off hopes when they entertain Braintree at Aggborough tomorrow (3pm ko).
With 16 games of the season left in the Skrill Premier, the Carpetmen are in desperate need of getting back on track and make-up the seven point gap they have to the Skrill Premier top five.
With games in hand over many of their rivals, they still have a chance if they can turn their form around.
However, Kidderminster’s confidence has taken a knock after just two wins and one draw in last ten league matches.
Defender Chey Dunkley returned to action for the first time since his sending off against Luton in last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Lincoln and he stressed the team must do better.
He said: “We need to do better as a team. There’s no hiding away because we know we’ve got good players it’s just doing it on the pitch.
“We are doing it in training and once we get the first win, hopefully we can just get a run going.”
Harriers boss Andy Thorn looks set to ring the changes in order to pep up his side.
Since replacing Steve Burr as manager in January, Thorn has overseen one win, a draw and three defeats as he tries to find a winning formula.
He is set to field new signings Josh O’Keefe, Freddie Ladapo, Adrian Cieslewicz and Santiago Aloi at some point on Saturday, with striker Anthony Malbon pushing hard for a return to action.
Saturday’s opponents themselves have a lot of catching up to do as they have not played in the league since January 11 because of the heavy rain which has hit southern Britain hard.
