KIDDERMINSTER Harriers fans are getting FA Cup fever ahead of the club's clash with Championship side Reading this Saturday.

A crowd of around 5,000 people is set to fill Aggborough Stadium to watch the Emirates FA Cup third round fixture.

All the tickets available for the cup clash have now been snapped up by Harriers and Royals fans.

Scott Jones, the PA announcer at Aggborough, says it will be a great day for the town of Kidderminster.

He said: "It's always great to be a part of games like this. The whole town's really getting behind it.

"There's a lot of buzz on social media. The fans are more connected to the club than ever.

"It's going to be a great day and hopefully it will be a day to remember."

He added: "This is the first time we've got this far in eight years.

"The last year in the third round we got Peterborough. We ended up beating them in a replay.

"We played Sunderland in the fourth round at the Stadium of Light. We lost 1-0.

"They were Premiership back then. That's the dream - to try and get through and get another Premiership team."

Warwick Nash, board member of the Kidderminster Harriers Independent Supporters Trust, says he can't wait to soak up the atmosphere on the day.

He said: "It should really be a party atmosphere.

"I think everybody is looking forward to it immensely. I'll be at the north terrace.

"As the week rolls along I think the excitement will build and build."

"I'll be in the stadium at 2pm to soak up the build up, and quite fancy us for an upset if we can go in at half time 0-0."

Mayor of Kidderminster councillor Juliet Smith said in a statement: “I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everybody involved with Kidderminster Harriers the very best of fortune, for this Saturday’s game, and most importantly, I hope everyone in attendance has a memorable day.

"I also hope to see our town centre, and surrounding boroughs decorated in red flags and scarves, as we all support our team on Saturday.”

Kick off is at 3pm.
