The Linnets will be determined to put last weekend’s FA Cup defeat behind them when they return to Vanarama National League North action with a visit to the Aggborough Stadium, home of Kidderminster Harriers . Town are handily placed in fourth position in the league table and a win, coupled with favourable results elsewhere , could put them back in second place come Saturday teatime.
The home team have had an indifferent start to their season and sit 14th heading into the weekend’s fixture. Off field problems however now appear to be behind the Harriers with talk of new players being lined up to come in and push the former football league towards the top end of the table. That transition appears to be underway now as, on Tuesday evening only a second home league victory of the season was achieved when the Harriers claimed a notable scalp with a 2 – 0 success over high flying Farsley Celtic.
Town for their part have had a free week to prepare for the weekend but it appears that Ian Culverhouse will again have to make do without both Ryan Fryatt (knee) and Ryan Jarvis ( groin) along with long term injury victim Chris Smith.
The club’s media officer Mark Hearle said ‘ Everyone was very disappointed with last weekend and how things went. However we still hold an outstanding league position in a season to date where there has been so many positives . Of course every game at this level is tough as has been seen so far but going into November sitting in the position we do is a credit to the management and team to date. The old cliché of one defeat doesn’t make you a bad side rings true on this occasion ‘.
Linnets supporters attending the fixture on Saturday are advised that they will be housed in the seated area of the East Stand to the segregated netting. They will also have full access to the visiting hot food kiosk and bar whilst in this area.
