We want to go far in FA Trophy – Burr
11:30am Friday 14th December 2012 in Sport By Steve Carley - Midlands Sports Journalist of the Year 2013, @stevecarleyWN
KIDDERMINSTER Harriers are intent on transferring their remarkable league form into FA Trophy success.
The Aggborough outfit are among the in-form teams in the country having lost just twice in their last 20 games in all competitions.
That includes a run of one loss in 17 Blue Square Bet Premier matches that has catapulted Steve Burr’s side from the bottom of the table to just four points shy of the play-off zone.
Tomorrow (3pm), Harriers travel to Bromley, struggling at the wrong end of Blue Square Bet South, for an FA Trophy second-round encounter.
Assistant manager Gary Whild insists Kidderminster, who beat Alfreton Town 3-1 in the last round, won’t be taking the Kent outfit lightly.
“There’s no doubt the Trophy is a competition we are very keen to go a long way in,” he said.
“Bromley are a league below us but we’ve done our homework on them and will be taking the game seriously.
“The lads are playing with a lot of confidence at the moment and long may it continue.”
Harriers, who defeated leaders Newport County 3-2 last Saturday with a Jamille Matt hat-trick, are looking for a sixth successive victory.
But they will have to do it without winger Marvin Johnson (fractured toe), while midfielder Kyle Storer serves a one-match ban for five yellow cards.
Matt has scored four goals in as many appearances following his return from a nine-month absence due to issues with his work permit.
The striker is already attracting interest with Premier League high-fliers West Bromwich Albion among his rumoured suitors.
