Harriers wait to see whether Dance appeal is upheld
6:00am Friday 11th October 2013 in Reports
HARRIERS are still waiting to see whether their appeal against the red card issued to James Dance this week has been successful.
Dance saw red following a stoppage time fracas with Forest Green Rovers defender Aarran Racine, who was given his marching orders at the same time
"He was dragged to his feet by his hair after both of them went for a 50-50 ball. He shouldn't have even been booked!
Burr also has injuries to worry about with the trio of central defender Chey Dunkley, left back Mickey Demetriou and striker Michael Gash all ruled out.
Unlucky Burr believes midfield man Callum Gittings could also be sidelined after damaging his hamstring in the game against Forest Green.
Harriers will leave it as late as possible to see whether Gittings recovers, but can at least call upon fit-again Jack Byrne to replace him.
There is also a doubt over fellow midfield player Lee Fowler, who hurt his ankle in the Forest Green game, but has responded to treatment and should play.
Burr also has the option of wideman Marvin Johnson waiting in the wings.
Boss Burr was boosted by the 4-1 win over Forest Green, a result that saw them rise to second spot behind runaway leaders Cambridge united.
Burr opted to start with the partnership of Joe Lolley and Nathan Blissett up front.
He claimed: "We didn't do a great deal attacking wise in the previous game against Chester, but against Forest Green, that was a bit more liek it!
Burr is under no illusions about tomorrow's task at Southport. Despite their lowly position, they have turned their home ground into a fortress and are unbeaten there this season.
