Harriers are hopeful on hitman Gash returning
11:30am Friday 1st November 2013 in Sport
TOP-scorer Michael Gash could return for Kidderminster Harriers as they seek a fourth consecutive Skrill Premier victory tomorrow (3pm).
Steve Burr’s men head to Barnet intent on keeping up the pressure on league leaders Cambridge United.
Five-goal marksman Gash has been hampered by a hamstring problem but is making progress and could get the nod at Underhill if Burr carries out his threat to ring the changes.
The Harriers boss was not impressed with his team after they edged past Skrill North Bradford Park Avenue 2-1 following extra-time in Tuesday’s FA Cup fourth qualifying round replay at Aggborough.
Gash, who scored in the 4-1 victory over Lincoln City in his only match last month, is in the frame, while Chey Dunkley could make a comeback.
The centre-half has been sidelined since mid-September with a knee injury, which handed an opportunity to Jamie Grimes, but is on the road to recovery.
Left-back Mickey Demetriou, who appeared as a second-half substitute against Bradford following a month out with a broken wrist, is another back in contention to start.
Burr may also turn to Marvin Johnson after the speedy winger came off the bench to create one goal and score another in Tuesday’s cup clash.
But midfielder Jack Byrne has a hamstring injury and striker Anthony Malbon continues to struggle with illness despite playing in mid-week.
Barnet are just two points outside the play-offs and unbeaten in their last six games.
Although manager Edgar Davids completes a three-match ban, Harriers have been warned against losing focus with the former Holland international around.
