Harriers plotting FA Cup surprise
MANAGER Steve Burr says Kidderminster Harriers have nothing to fear when they go in search of FA Cup glory against Peterborough United today (3pm).
It has been a month to forget for Harriers with last Saturday’s 6-0 thrashing at Luton Town being their fourth defeat in five Skrill Premier matches during December.
But League One promotion hopefuls Peterborough are also enduring a slump in form and have lost their last three games ahead of the Aggborough showdown.
Although his team have struggled of late, Burr insists anything can happen in a one-off match and reckons Harriers, one of only three non-league sides still standing in the cup, can cause an upset against The Posh.
“To be in the third round is a great achievement for us, me personally and the players,” the Kidderminster boss said.
“To have a cup run is always something I’ve wanted to do and it’s not over by any means.
“We have had a dip in form, like Peterborough, but it should be a great atmosphere at our place, as it always is, and you never know.”
There is the added incentive of £67,500 for the winners and Burr has not given up hope of playing a Premier League side later in the competition.
He added: “We have got a tough game but there is an opportunity to get through this one and meet a big team in the next round.”
