HARRIERS will be aiming to build on their recent improvement at out of form title-chasers Cambridge United tomorrow.

Four points from two games means Andy Thorn’s men head to the Abbey Stadium in good spirits.

In contrast they face a U’s side suffering from an alarming slump in results.

The second-placed team are now 14 points behind leaders Luton after just two wins in the last ten Skrill Premier.

Despite booking their spot in the FA Trophy final against Gosport Borough in recent weeks, United boss Richard Money has been alarmed by his side’s poor form and told his players to ‘pull their heads out of their backsides’.

Cambridge lost 1-0 to Braintree on Tuesday , a side Kidderminster drew 2-2 against on Saturday.

In contrast, Thorn is feeling positive ahead of this week’s clash.

He said: “We go there with confidence.

“They lost to Braintree on Tuesday night. It’s a difficult place to go but we like to think we are getting things right.”

Lee Vaughan will give the manager more options as he is back after serving a two-match suspension.

Striker Michael Gash is still sidelined with his hamstring injury sustained at Lincoln.

Thorn added: “It might be a bit longer for Michael. He’s working hard and I think he wishes he was fit.

“He’s working hard with physio Gavin [Crowe]. A lot of credit has to go to Gav because he’sdone a lot of work with the boys.”
