THE transformation at Kidderminster Harriers under new manager Gary Whild continues apace with striker Nick Wright returning to the club until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old, who scored 25 goals for Harriers between the summers of 2010 and 2012, has joined on loan from Skrill Premier rivals Lincoln City.

Wright, who joined Mansfield Town after leaving Aggborough, could be involved in tonight's home match against Macclesfield Town (7.45pm).

He is the second player to link-up with Harriers since Whild replaced Andy Thorn as boss, with versatile left-sided player Amari'i Bell signing on a youth loan from Birmingham City last week.

Whild has also recruited ex-England keeper Tim Flowers and former Harriers captain Mark Creighton into his backroom staff.

Harriers are seeking to get themselves back on track following a turbulent few weeks that has seen the club change manager twice and drop down the table to 10th.

With 12 games to go, Whild will be hoping Wright can help fire Kidderminster back into the play-off picture.

During his previous stint with the club, he achieved hero status by scoring a 10-minute hat-trick as Harriers came from two goals down to beat Newport County 3-2 at Aggborough in April 2012.

Wright has managed just two goals for the Imps this term, including in Lincoln's 4-1 defeat at Kidderminster in October.

He also scored in a 4-1 victory over Alfreton Town but has not featured at Sincil Bank since Lincoln's 4-0 defeat to North Ferriby United in the FA Trophy on January 11.

Wright has previously been on the books at Tamworth as well as having loan spells at Northampton and Bristol City.
