Harriers target Cambridge victory

First published in Sport

KIDDERMINSTER Harriers host Cambridge United tonight (7.30pm) intent on keeping up their push for the Skrill Premier play-offs.

The Aggborough outfit have dropped to eighth in the table, four points adrift of the top five, following just one win in four league matches since manager Andy Thorn took charge.

But Harriers are determined to put that right in front of their own supporters against the second-placed Us.

Thorn said: "We have had an awful lot of away games and it will be nice to get back in our own stadium and get the fans behind the team.

"It's important that we get back to winning and stay in and around it because there are still a lot of points to play for."

Harriers lost 3-1 at promotion rivals Gateshead last weekend, while Cambridge booked their place in the FA Trophy semi-finals with a 1-0 win at Eastleigh.

Although it has only been five days since their defeat in the north east, it is the longest Thorn has had with his squad between matches since replacing Steve Burr last month and he feels it has been a beneficial period.

The Harriers manager said: "We have been able to get some work into the players of how we want them to play. Before that we were playing and recovering and not able to do much work."

Tonight's match, which is being shown live on BT Sport, is subject to an 11am pitch inspection. Landlords Worcester City's league match against Stockport County at Aggborough last Saturday was called off.
