STUART Watkiss hopes to field latest Kidderminster Harriers target Wayne Graves at Worcester City tonight.

The tough-tackling midfielder has been training with Grimsby after his release from Scunthorpe but Watkiss is keen to look at the 24-year-old.

Graves has more than 140 Football League appearances under his belt and could be one of two experienced signings Harriers are still looking for.

The Harriers boss is continuing his pursuit of strikers but Mark Rawle's return seems even less likely as he is currently impressing in a trial at Woking.

Watkiss added: "It's proving difficult to get forwards in. Hand on heart, there's not a lot of names jumping out at me. But we have Gareth Sheldon, Lee Thompson, Michael Blackwood and Simon Russell who can all play up there with Iyseden Christie.

"It may be I get someone in on loan but I would rather sign someone permanently. I can add two more players who would be first teamers."

Watkiss is looking forward to pitting his wits against Worcester after beating Wolves 2-1 but losing by the same scoreline to Walsall last week.

He insisted: "I think it's going to be a lot more difficult and more what you would expect week in week out in the Conference.

"We will be giving them the utmost respect. If my players go to pose and play at anything less than 100 per cent, they are going to have a rude awakening."

Winger Blackwood returns to t George's Lane where he impressed in a short spell in 2002.
