HARRIERS will be aiming to build on their excellent start to the Vanarama Conference when they entertain Dartford at Aggborough tomorrow.

The Aggborough outfit have already picked up four points from their first two games and will be keen to see off the Kent outfit.

In contrast, Dartford lost 2-1 at Wrexham and drew 1-1 at Woking.

Josh O’Keefe is the only injury doubt and his foot will need a scan for a suspected broken bone.

Otherwise, Harriers are likely to be unchanged after beating Alfreton 3-0 on Tuesday night.

The likes of Reece Styche and Michael Gash will be pushing for starts after promising substitute performances.

But the hard working pair of Craig Reid and Nathan Blissett have impressed manager Gary Whild.

Meanwhile, defender Jared Hodgkiss has savoured his Kidderminster start.

The right-back has slotted into the position vacated by Lee Vaughan impressively and also provided the cross for Marvin Johnson’s goal on Tuesday.

He said: “If you can tell win your home games and draw away that’s promotion form.

"We pride ourselves on clean sheets so we’re very pleased with the first two games.

“I think hard work gets you where you want to be, if every player gives 100 per cent we can get there.”

Dartford have added striker Harry Crawford, experienced former Wimbledon midfielder Peter Sweeney, winger Luke Daley and defender Rory McAuley this summer, as well as keeper Jason Brown this summer.

Last season, they finshed in the bottom four but escaped relegation to the Vanarama Conference when Salisbury and Hereford were expelled.

Fans unable to make the clash can follow all the action with The Shuttle’s live match updates from 2pm.

That will be followed by a report in the whistle and reaction of the result.
