Harriers out to stretch their run of success

KIDDERMINSTER Harriers take their five-game unbeaten start in the Vanarama Conference to Dover Athletic tomorrow (3pm).

Gary Whild’s side are 10th in the formative table following two victories and three draws so far in August.

Two of those stalemates have been on their travels — 0-0 at both Lincoln City and Macclesfield Town — stretching Harriers’ unbeaten away record to eight matches since Whild took over from Andy Thorn in March.

Despite only having won once in that period — 3-1 at Hyde at the end of April — Harriers are proving a tough nut to crack.

The 2-2 home draw against Chester on Bank Holiday Monday was the first time they have conceded any goals this term.

But Whild is wary of a backlash from newly-promoted Dover, who were thrashed 6-1 at Woking on Bank Holiday Monday.

He said: “I expect nothing more than a tough game at Dover. They had a disappointing result against Woking and will be looking to bounce back from that. But I have been pleased with how we have played away from home.

“We always go out to win home or away, I thought against Macclesfield we should have won the game and was disappointed we didn’t.”

Chey Dunkley misses out with a one-match ban following his red card against Chester and is set to be replaced by Jamie Grimes.

Harriers had looked comfortable at 2-0 against Steve Burr’s side but the centre-half’s dismissal at the start of the second-half changed the course of the match.
