Kidderminster’s faint hopes of gate crashing the play-off places are finally over after the 0-0 stalemate with Nuneaton and so their final-day assignment at Halifax, who are all but mathematically guaranteed a top five berth, is effectively a dead rubber.
Nevertheless, Gary Whild will be keen for his team to finish the campaign on a high but they travel to West Yorkshire as BetVictor’s 11/4 outsiders while the Shaymen are bet365’s even money favourites to secure an impressive tenth victory in a dozen outings.
A respectable point for Harriers is a 5/2 chance at Stan James, BetVictor post 10/3 against a score draw and more specifically, Winner.com offer odds of 13/2 about the clash finishing one-apiece, although Monday’s Kidderminster result might nudge a few punters towards bet365’s 12/1 about another goalless affair.
In Stan James’s handicaps, Whild’s troops are awarded a goal start at 5/6 on account of their status as underdogs and betway make Harriers a tempting 6/4 in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
However, Kidderminster might feel that the hosts will be a touch distracted, perhaps with half an eye on the forthcoming and BetVictor make them 9/2 to capitalise by registering a victory by a one-goal margin.
Also of interest to travelling fans could be Ladbrokes’s 11/1 about a 2-1 away success, William Hill post 5/1 against Harriers holding a lead at the end of each half and they’re a 5/1 shot courtesy of Paddy Power to come out on top but fail to keep a clean sheet.
At the other end, Skybet rate Kidderminster at 5/4 to break the deadlock and Amari Morgan-Smith is a whopping 15/2 (bet365) to grab that opener following his leveller at Brighton on Monday.
