That league table tells no lies - we are 4 points above 20th position and have played 2 games more - a win against Blyth will give us just a little breathing space and we could do with that.

A big crowd - probably not - I paid £12 to watch us fail in the most fundamental manner at Edgar Street - that was not a good deal so dropping our adult price to £10 is only a good deal if we are serving up attractive and entertaining football which we do actually deliver occasionally but not regularly enough.

I am already prepared for a dour game tomorrow but hope we can scrape a win.
Suppose we all have our views, but what a depressing post.

Hopefully the table will tell a different story at the end of the season.
Sorry but that's how it feels for me at the moment in regard to KHFC and yes I would hope the table will tell a different story by the end of the season.

Bringing in Keith Lowe is the most positive action this week and I welcome that wholeheartedly.

Methinks JS doesn't have a choice - if Davidson is crocked - already wafer thin, injuries and suspensions have finally caught up the Harriers.

Midfield - Prosser, Shenton, Butterfield & Hemmings playing out wide.

Peniket & Freemantle up top.

Just hope there are no injuries.

Bench will be a case of fans asking each other,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,"Who's he?"
Maybe Jaiden will get a recall??
Yes, if Davidson is out for any length of time, a recall for Jayden perhaps to play wingback even, if we stick with 3 central defenders.
I wouldn't think Jaiden will be back. He's only just signed on for another month. They'll just stick an under 23s defender on the bench with Palmer, Freemantle, Digie & Scott, I reckon.

Shan will go 4-2-3-1, I'd bet the house on it. If Correy is out Austin, Moyo, Lowe, Higginson across the back. Williams, Hemmings, Prosser, Butterfield & Shenton in the middle. Picks itself.

They're also four points from thirteenth. Lower-mid table is proper log-jammed. Depends if your cup is half full or half empty.

I think the vast majority of fans feel much as you do Pershore and it is depressing - so much so that hundreds have deserted the ship.

Fair play to you for your dedication. :scarf:

I've missed the last 4 home games with illness and then family commitments and I will be missing today's game too.

It's hard to admit this but I haven't really missed it. I sincerely hope that my enthusiasm returns for the next home game because I've invested a lot of emotional energy in Harriers over the last 20 years and I don't want the current situation on the pitch to knock the remaining stuffing out of me.
It is only a matter of time before those good people at Camelot give me the lottery jackpot that I so richly deserve.

Some of you lot remind me of a caller on local radio a few years ago when a Wolves fan called in to complain about their performance after they had won 4-0. The glass seems to be 1/4 empty all the time. Btw I am going today and it's nice to know other people are not.

Well I'm going and I'm expecting us to win the game.

Will be nice to see Kieth Lowe back in the shirt, and I hope we see a little bit of tactical flexibility (at some point) whereby JS can play both Penniket and Freemantle at the same time and not just as lone striker's.

It's not going to be an easy game, Blyth 's form has picked up recently and they have some useful 'away' form .

That performance was completely and utterly unacceptable. There are four players that can have any type of positive thoughts on their performance today. Those four being Mannion (nothing to do), Lowe (trained once), Hemmings (only player on either site that had any spark) and Freemantle (worked his socks off again)

The rest need to have a long hard think about whether football this is the right career for them. If I delivered a days work to that standard my boss wouldn’t accept it and I’d be left in no doubt as to how they felt. I hope the players are left in no doubt as to the managers thoughts on what they delivered today. If we don’t improve FAST we are in major danger of going down

Final word goes to Buttetfield who was down the tunnel practically before the ref blew his whistle. Show some respect towards the fans who have turned up and paid their money to watch you.

Totally agree with the above. Add to that the manger who is in charge of picking the team. One up front again. Takes Freemantle off when losing and kept five at the back. We were even passing backwards in the three minutes of added time. New low for the club tonight.

I thought Prosser was outstanding in the first half - but ran himself into the ground trying to do the job of two players in midfield.

Need time to reflect before posting m thoughts on the game.
