AFC Fylde Vs Kidderminster Harriers. 14-08-23. Match preview

Preview: Phil Lench

Amari Morgan-Smith
Amari Morgan-Smith …
The Harriers leading scorer so far this season

If you thought our promotion would see the back of some teams that we hated playing then you’d be wrong because we still have to play AFC Fylde and that happens tomorrow evening.

Long famous for being a team that we just couldn’t beat that all came to an end last season with a FA Trophy win and then a long overdue league win with both coming at their Mill Farm ground. The win in the league was our third in that nine game winning run that sent us up while both goals came from Amari Morgan-Smith. AMS is our leading scorer this season so far but we have only scored one goal so far anyway 🙂

We’ve drawn at home to Woking FC and won away at York City so far while Fylde have drawn away at Maidenhead Utd and then lost at home to Chesterfield on Saturday. Now we know that they can be beaten this season we should be in with a good chance of doing it ourselves too.

We’ll be without Shane Byrne for a while but now we could also be without Matt Preston too after he was helped off injured at the end of the York game. It looked to be a leg injury of some kind but we haven’t been told anything official yet. Zak Brown and AMS also picked up minor looking injuries too but they’ll probably be ok to play.

We dominated the game at York and looked good value for the win. Now we have to be good value for another win at AFC Fylde too.
