Harriers look to make it a great eight
HAVING endured a wretched start to the season, Kidderminster Harriers head to Ebbsfleet United tomorrow (3pm) bidding to stretch their unbeaten run to eight games.
The Aggborough lost the first five games of their Blue Square Bet Premier campaign but have since gone the whole of September without losing, recording back-to-back wins against Cambridge United and Macclesfield Town in the process.
Although they are still occupying a position in the table at odds with a team that has flirted with the play-offs for two seasons running, manager Steve Burr believes they are heading in the right direction. He said: “Things are looking a lot better, a couple of wins can turn things around quickly.
“The main thing is we are on a run of not being beaten and we want to continue that. it will be a tough game at Ebbsfleet, it always is, they are always well organised. If we can carry on what we have been doing in the last few weeks I am sure we can come back with the three points.”
Six goals in their last two games has also restored confidence to a forward line that had previously only managed seven goals all season.
Combined with a defence that has been breeched just six times in the last month and Harriers have reason to be pleased.
Burr added: “The one difference is we have put our chances away and are among the goals now. it’s stating the obvious but if you score goals you have got a chance of winning games.
“The lads at the back are doing very well and the performance defensively against Macclesfield was excellent. We just want to keep climbing the table and get away from where we are.”
Harriers have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the Kent trip and are also hoping midfielder Kyle Storer could return in a week following knee surgery.
