Boss Burr confident of filling Matt void
MANAGER Steve Burr remains hopeful of bolstering his Kidderminster Harriers squad before the January transfer window closes.
The Aggborough club are in the market for a striker following the high-profile departure of Jamille Matt to Fleetwood Town, thought to be for around £300,000.
A midfielder is also be on the agenda given that Jack Byrne (Achilles) is not expected to play again this season, Keith Briggs and James Vincent have been suffering with knee problems and Sean Clancy is suspended for two matches.
Harriers have already stated they will not be held to ransom over transfer fees but are keen to do business, possibly before tomorrow’s visit of Woking (3pm).
Their progress has been hit by the weather but Burr is continuing his efforts to bring in reinforcements.
He said: “We’ve made a few enquiries and hit a few brick walls but we’re still looking to bring a few players in.
“With Jamille gone it’s a priority to bring in a centre forward and the squad does need some bolstering.
The Aggborough boss added: “The snow hasn’t helped, we were supposed to have a couple of lads on trial this week but they weren’t able to travel because of the snow.
“But we’ve just got to get on with it because there’s not much we can do about the weather.”
Kidderminster will be looking to get back on track tomorrow following last Saturday’s 1-0 loss at Macclesfield, one of a handful of games to beat the snow.
Even though sixth-placed Luton Town have three games in hand, Burr’s side remain in the Blue Square Bet Premier top five and are looking to stay there.
Harriers have seen their defensive options strengthened by the return of centre-half Ryan Austin from his loan spell at Blue Square Bet North Brackley Town.
Woking are seeking a third win in a row following triumphs against Luton and Ebbsfleet United.
