THE biggest game of the season awaits Kidderminster Harriers at fellow play-off contenders Luton Town tomorrow (3pm), according to manager Steve Burr.

Following five straight wins, including last Saturday’s 6-1 drubbing of Kettering Town, Harriers have surged into the Blue Square Bet Premier top five and are intent on staying there. However, Luton sit just two points below them in the table ahead of the Kenilworth Road clash and have a game in hand.

Burr knows the Hatters are a tough nut to crack, having lost to them at Aggborough in the league and in the FA Trophy, but has every belief in his players.

He said: “Games don’t come bigger than playing Luton on their own ground with so much riding on it.

“With the situation the way it is, I think we’ll have to go for the win. A point wouldn’t be the end of the world but I’ve never played for a draw and I am not about to start now.

“We’ve not beaten them this season and when we lost to them in the Trophy I thought they were the best side to come to Aggborough.

“I want my team to continue playing in the manner they have recently because they have been fantastic.”

Influential midfielder Jack Byrne could be back after missing the Kettering game with a hamstring strain, while winger Marvin Johnson (groin) should return.

Meanwhile, With Harriers and opponents Stourbridge still in the play-off mix in their leagues, the Worcestershire FA Senior Cup final at Aggborough next Tuesday has been postponed.

It will now be played pre-season ahead of the 2012-13 campaign.
