Match Preview: Kidderminster Harriers

posted in: First Team News, News | 0

Avenue will seek to recreate the form shown at the Aggborough last season as they look to put additional distance between them and the chasing pack.

It’s been almost a year since Bradford last visited the Aggborough Stadium for a standard league game on the last day of the 2017/18 season.

For the Avenue faithful the day will go down as one of the most memorable in recent history. Having gone 1-0 down in the 1st quarter of an hour, it took until well into the second half for Frank Mulhern to find an equaliser.

With the clock ticking down and news of Spennymoor’s victory over Southport filtering through to the away fans, any hopes of a playoff spot began to slip away until, in the final moments of the game, Adam Boyes arrived at the back post to slot the ball home and sent the travelling green army into a frenzy.

Just four days later Bradford returned to the Aggborough, this time finding the Harriers much easier to handle with a 2 goals to nil sealing a 6th consecutive win and a pass through to the playoff semi-finals.

This time round, Bradford go to Kidderminster 9 points ahead of the hosts, who sit just outside the playoffs, albeit 5 points adrift.

Kidderminster have lost their last two games and now have a lot of ground to cover in order to catch up and secure a playoff spot. But with both Telford and Altrincham holding games in hand, the Harriers could potentially go 8 points adrift.

Avenue will go into Saturday’s game looking for a repeat of last season’s form in order to put further distance between them and the chasing pack, as well as to climb the table and secure a lucrative home playoff fixture.
