We turn our attentions to the weekend’s National League North action with a full and in-depth preview of Kidderminster Harriers’ visit to The Brewery Field.
Spennymoor Town v Kidderminster Harriers
Saturday 11th February 2023, 3pm
National League North
The Brewery Field
Kidderminster Harriers are once again vying for a return to the National League and arrive at The Brewery Field this weekend sitting just outside the play-off positions.
The Aggborough outfit saw a three-game winning streak come to an end last Saturday when they were surprisingly beaten on home soil by Scarborough Athletic.
However, that was their first defeat since in National League North since the beginning of December and they will hope to bounce back quickly at Moors’ expense at the weekend.
This is Harriers’ seventh consecutive season at this level, and they have come close a return to the fourth tier on a few occasions, most recently when they reached the play-offs last term only to be beaten by Boston United in their eliminator match.
One To Watch
Amari Morgan-Smith is a dangerous presence in the Kidderminster Harriers attack and is set to be a crucial figure for the club during the next couple of months.
The front man enjoyed a fantastic 2021/22 when he hit the net 17 times and he got back among the goals when he scored twice in Harriers’ 3-1 win over Blyth Spartans recent.
Now in his third stint in Harriers’ colours, Morgan-Smith will need to be monitored closely by Moors’ defence at The Brewery Field this weekend.
Head To Head
Saturday’s game will be the tenth competitive meeting between the clubs and four of the previous nine encounters have ended in draws.
Moors have not beaten Harriers in the last four attempts. However, Kidderminster have not tasted victory in any of their four previous visits to The Brewery Field.
On The Whistle
John Mulligan will be the man in charge of Saturday’s game, and he will be assisted by Paul Mosley and Thomas Maher.
Saturday’s game is segregated, meaning away fans must enter The Brewery Field via Turnstile 1 on the Tees Crescent side of the stadium.
Both home and away supporters can buy their tickets in advance online now, simply printing tickets out at home or by showing the QR code from your mobile device at the turnstiles.
Alternatively, fans can also pay by card or cash at the turnstiles on matchday.
Don’t worry if you can’t get along to the game because we’ll once again be broadcasting full live commentary on Durham OnAir to ensure you can stay bang up to date.
Mark Simpson will be live from The Brewery Field from 2.50pm with supporters able to access the live coverage online, via the Durham OnAir app, on DAB radio or on Freeview Channel 277.
Kiddeminster have been installed as 13/10 favourites for three points on Saturday, with Moors just behind at odds of 7/4 and you can back the game ending in a draw at a price of 85/40.
