KIDDERMINSTER Harriers turn their attention back to the FA Trophy when Stockport County visit Aggborough in the second round tomorrow (3pm).

Attacking midfielder Dan Bradley and right-back Lee Vaughan hope to get more game time after returning to the starting XI in Tuesday's 0-0 draw at Chorley.

Sixth-placed Harriers extended their unbeaten run to 14 National League North games which included a 2-1 win at Stockport in late October when Joe Ironside bagged a second-half brace.

Harriers have lost only once in 21 games in all competitions — a 4-2 FA Cup defeat at higher-ranked AFC Fylde in November — and not been beaten at home since the first day of the season against Chorley.

Manager John Eustace was pleased for Bradley and Vaughan after injury lay-offs and said: “It really is a squad game and everyone has a part to play.

"It was great for them. It was Lee’s first 90 minutes (since signing) and an important 70 for Dan Bradley.

"They both worked really hard.”

Left-back Joel Taylor missed Chorley with illness and could still be a doubt with James Pearson poised to continue in his place.

Injured midfielder Declan Weeks and forward Mani Sonupe are close to a return but this weekend could come too soon.

Harriers have drawn their last six away games in all competitions and Eustace believes his young players are coming of age.

He said: “The draws away from home do show our spirit. There have been disappointing draws in there as well but the main thing is we haven’t been beaten.

“The first half at Leamington (1-1 draw last Saturday) was good but the second was poor so there are lots of things to still work on.

“You have to start turning those away draws into wins if you want to be up there which is what we’ll try to do.

“I guess it does show we are maturing as a squad though.

"They have played a lot of games together now and have that spirit and togetherness.”

Fellow league play-off chasers Stockport, who sit ninth in the table, are unbeaten in the last six games with four wins.

The 3-2 loss at Brackley Town on December 2 was their first defeat since late October.
