KIDDERMINSTER Harriers can move 11 points clear of the Nationwide League Division Three relegation area if they beat second-from-bottom Darlington at Aggborough tomorrow.

Harriers director of football Jan Molby describes the clash as 'probably the biggest game of the season' against a Quakers side who are struggling to escape from the dreaded drop zone.

Victory for the visitors, however, would close the gap between them and 20th-placed Harriers to just five points.

Former Liverpool star Molby said: "It's certainly a game where we want to avoid defeat.

"Obviously the perfect scenario is to win and the worst one is to lose. So we'll settle for a draw or a win because that will keep them at arm's length.

"If we were to win, of course, it is starting to look good in terms of the bottom two places and that's all we are looking at.

"That's our aim this season to make sure we keep the bottom two places well out of reach.

"Darlington will know it's a big game, but the fact we have played two games less than them will help. But that doesn't mean we can afford anything other than a draw or a win. That's the way we will be approaching the game.

"I've been reading a couple of match reports and I think they have been unfortunate with some of the defeats."

Harriers' long-serving central defender Craig Hinton describes tomorrow's encounter as 'massive', saying: "We know we need to get some more points in the bag and get above the relegation zone.

"We had a little hitch at Mansfield last Saturday but the confidence is there. The lads know if they can go out and play well, they can beat anybody."

Molby, meanwhile, is hopeful Harriers can 'switch back on' and return to winning ways following their 2-0 FA Cup third round replay defeat against Premiership strugglers Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Tuesday.

Adam Murray was unable to play against Wolves due to being cup-tied but will be back in contention for a place tomorrow.

Fellow midfielder Lee Jenkins is set to come off the casualty list following a knee injury which has kept him out of the last three matches.

Left-back Scott Stamps, however, will miss out due to a one-match suspension for reaching five yellow cards.

Harriers will be chasing their first league 'double' of the season after winning 2-0 at Darlington in August thanks to goals from Danny Williams and Andy Bishop.

The Quakers, whose chairman George Reynolds resigned earlier this week, have yet to win an away league game this season.

David Hodgson's side have scored just one goal and picked up only one point from their last six outings.
