DAVE Hockaday will take charge of Kidderminster Harriers for a second time in tomorrow’s Vanarama National League trip to Altrincham (7.45pm).

Harriers suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat at Macclesfield Town on Saturday after Hockaday was unveiled as their new head coach on Friday night.

Jordan Murphy, who has joined Harriers on loan from Walsall, marked his debut with late goal after first-half strikes from Tony Diagne and Danny Rowe had put Macclesfield in control.

Former Hartlepool United forward Callum Hassan came on as a late substitute and made a good impression on his Harriers bow.

Kidderminster have bolstered their squad with the loan signings of Bournemouth’s Ben Whitfield and West Bromwich Albion’s Joe Ward.

Whitfield, 19, is an attacking midfielder, while 18-year-old Ward made the bench in  Albion’s league cup defeat at Norwich City.

But West Brom youngster Andre Wright has returned to the Hawthorns after the two clubs agreed to end his loan spell at Aggborough.

Bottom-of-the-table Harriers have gone 16 matches without a win and face 19th-placed Altrincham, who lost 2-0 at Aldershot on Saturday.

The Moss Lane outfit have secured five wins from their 16 matches and are just above the relegation zone.

Evesham United will be looking for an improved showing when they visit higher-graded Bedworth United in the first round of the Red Insure Cup (7.45pm).

The Robins fell to a 3-0 defeat at Evo-Stik Southern League Division One South and West rivals Larkhall Athletic on Saturday.

It was Evesham’s heaviest loss of the season against the side who ended their promotion dreams at the play-off semi-final stage last term.

Although Dan MacDonald went close with a couple of early opportunities, Evesham posed little threat late on and have dropped to 10th in the table.

Bedworth play one tier above Evesham – in the Premier Division – but are struggling in 22nd spot with just eight points from 14 matches.

Bedworth suffered a 5-1 league defeat at seventh-placed Hungerford Town on Saturday.

In-form Hereford host Hinton at Edgar Street in the first round of the Herefordshire FA County Challenge Cup at Edgar (7.45pm).

Hereford have won their last nine matches in all competitions and the winners will have home advantage against Bromyard Town in the quarter-finals.

Bromyard Town travel to Wolverhampton Casuals in the West Midlands League Premier Division and Bromsgrove Sporting entertain Lye Town in the Worcestershire FA Senior Urn (both 7.45pm).
