Alfreton next for in-form Kidderminster
KIDDERMINSTER Harriers host Alfreton Town tomorrow (3pm) looking to maintain their incredible surge towards promotion.
Tuesday’s 1-0 victory at fellow high-fliers Forest Green Rovers made it 13 victories from their last 15 Blue Square Bet Premier matches.
The remarkable run has catapulted Steve Burr’s side from the bottom of the division to third place and just five points off top spot.
Not surprisingly, confidence could not be much higher at Aggborough and the club have made no secret of their ambition to cap the campaign with the title.
Alfreton are the next obstacle but Harriers show no signs of letting up in their quest to return to the Football League.
While Burr will be wary of taking on a Derbyshire side who have just suffered back-to-back defeats for granted, he has every faith in his team.
He said: “It will be tough. You have to show all teams in this division the utmost respect but I honestly believe, if we keep doing what we have been, we’re capable of beating anybody.
“I was disappointed we didn’t reach the heights we have done at Forest Green but there is another side to winning games and we saw that.
“From the front right the way through (goalkeeper) Danny Lewis, every one of them put a shift in and we defended when we had to.”
Left-back Mickey Demetriou and midfielder Danny Jackman recovered from thigh strains to figure at Forest Green with the latter pushing for a start after coming on as a half-time substitute.
Right-back Lee Vaughan remains a concern after missing the New Lawn victory with a groin injury.
The sides played out a 1-1 draw at Alfreton last September before Harriers won 3-1 in the FA Trophy in November.
