HARRIERS boss Mark Yates says his players are heading to table-toppers Chorley in confident mood.

Kidderminster sit on the brink of the National League North play-off places following last Saturday's 4-1 triumph over basement boys Nuneaton Borough.

A hat-trick from Ashley Chambers and a Joe Ironside penalty handed Reds a deserved win at Aggborough.

However, they now head into a pivotal month as they look to breach the top seven.

The Chorley clash will be followed by games against third-placed Spennymoor, fourth-placed Brackley and fifth-placed Altrincham.

Yates says he's looking no further than this weekend's battle with the leaders.

"We have a tough run of games coming up now but we'll only focused on the first one at Chorley," he said.

"The next game is the most important for us and we'll go there aiming to win it.

"The boys are ready and confident and we know that if we perform how we can then there is no reason for us to fear anyone.

"We'll obviously respect them and what they have done this season but we'll go there and be positive.

"We just want to keep picking up wins and going under the radar a little and just keep the pressure on those sides above us.

"If we have the right attitude then we know we can give anyone a game."

On the Nuneaton win, he added: "It was fully deserved. It was pleasing and so was how we react to getting pegged back.

"It's about the players dealing with things on the pitch and taking more responsibility. We did that and in the end were the better side by far.

"You can see the little things we are working on coming together each week on the pitch."

Midfielders Declan Weeks and Liam Truslove will both have injuries assessed ahead of the weekend.
