HARRIERS will be aiming to extend their unbeaten start to the Vanarama Conference when they go to Macclesfield Town tomorrow.

Gary Whild's side have seven points from their first three games but they meet a Silkmen side keen to protect a similarly good start.

John Askey's side have beaten Braintree at home and won 3-2 at Telford as well as picking up a decent point at Woking.

Kidderminster have not won at Moss Ross in six games, not since Colin Larkin bagged a winner in a 1-0 victory during the 2001-02 season.

But Whild is keen for his side to be solid away from Aggborough and the Kidderminster boss has yet to experience an away defeat since taking over as manager.

Under his guidance, they have drawn six matches and won one on their travels.

"The games at Macclesfield have tended to be close and it's a game we are looking forward to," commented Harriers' manager.

"It could be a bit like Lincoln because they are another side hoping for a play-off push.

"I think with their money troubles, their manager has used it as a backs to the wall scenario and got the best out of the players."

Midfielder Josh O'Keefe was set for an injection this week to sort out a recurring foot injury.

The former Hereford United man has yet to recapture the goal-scoring form he demonstrated for the Bulls and persuaded Andy Thorn to bring him to Worctershire.

Whild added: "Josh has had an injection in his foot and we'll assess it.

"If you look at the squad we've got 21 players and that includes a couple of younger lads, so Josh is someone we're glad to have at the club.

"When he came from Hereford it wasn't the best of times at the club and he'd be the first to say we've not seen him at his best but there's more to come from him."

The Silkmen will be hoping that David Gonzalez and Chris Holroyd, who missed the Telford , as they drew with Woking, are available for this weekend's match.
