Harriers strive to make up ground on leaders

KEEPING tabs with the Skrill Premier title-chasers is Kidderminster Harriers’ aim tonight when they take on Grimsby Town (7.45) under the glare of the television cameras.
Steve Burr’s side travel to Blundell Park keen to return to winning ways following last Saturday’s surprise 3-1 home defeat against Alfreton Town.
It has left third-placed Harriers five points adrift of Luton Town and a further four behind leaders Cambridge United ahead of tonight’s match live on BT Sport.
With their rivals not in action until the weekend, Kidderminster will be looking to get three crucial points on the board against the Mariners, who sit fifth with two games in hand.
Burr will be without striker Amari Morgan-Smith following his red card against Alfreton, while midfielder Callum Gittings also serves a one-match ban after picking up his fifth yellow card against the Reds.
Right-back Lee Vaughan is set to return having completed a one-game suspension but midfielder Jack Byrne faces a fitness test after missing last weekend’s defeat with a hamstring strain.
