Worcester Raiders are preparing for the ‘biggest match’ in club history as they take on Kidderminster Harriers tomorrow.

The two sides will meet at Sixways in the quarter-final of the Worcestershire Senior Cup, a 7:45pm kick-off.

Raiders joint manager Mark Owen is eagerly awaiting the cup clash with a side four steps above them in the football pyramid.

He said: “It’s going to be a fantastic night for the lads to welcome Kidderminster to the ground.

“Like I say, if we were told that we could play Kidderminster Harriers this season I’m sure the fans would look forward to it as are the player and the staff now so yeah.”

Harriers come to Worcester fresh from causing an upset in the FA Cup, as they beat National League side FC Halifax 2-0 to claim a spot in the third round.

Owen added: “I think it’s their first time they have been here as well so it’s going to be a game we can all look forward to, especially after their fantastic result at the weekend.

“Who knows what kind of side they’ll bring down, but I’m sure whatever squad they bring, it’ll be very competitive and it’ll be a test for our lads to see where we are.”

Raiders didn’t play this weekend however they currently sit one point and a game in hand behind Hellenic League Division One leaders Cheltenham Saracens.

Despite his players having been given a rest, Owen is not expecting an easy tie.

He said: “Like I say, I’m not sure how many will actually play from yesterday’s squad.

“So, I guess they’ll have a fresh strong squad out as well, but our lads had a weekend off.

“I think with the games coming thick and fast the last few weeks, it was only right to give them a weekend off with us now going into the Christmas period.”

He added: “It’s been brilliant the last few weeks playing in the evening. The fans have seemed to be getting behind it and hopefully it continues with a decent crowd tomorrow.”
