After two successive postponements due to the weather, Kevin Wilkin’s side are back in action as Kidderminster Harriers arrive at St James Park on Saturday for another top of the table clash.
Currently 8th, Kidderminster are only 4 points behind Saints in 5th place, although Harriers have played one game more.
Brackley dropped a place in the table after Bradford Park Avenue’s win at Spennymoor in midweek. Park Avenue moved up to 4th as Spennymoor stayed 3rd for now behind Chorley and Stockport County. Spennymoor have rather dropped away in recent weeks losing 3 of their last 4 games and without a win in that time. Kidderminster have 3 wins and a defeat in their last 4 outings while Saints are the form side with 4 straight wins including against Stockport County last time out.
Ahead of the match Kevin Wilkin said, “If we can maintain the level of commitment and keep to that level of performance from the Blyth and Stockport games then hopefully we can have a strong finish to the season and who knows where that can take us. We have some big tests coming up as we reach the climax of the league season and the table remains really tight with so many teams in contention. Saturday’s game is one of those big tests.”
Young midfielder Alex Prosser has signed for Saints for the remainder of the season to strengthen Kevin’s options ahead of a busy run of games with the re-arranged fixture at Hereford scheduled for 26 March, a date for the Altrincham game yet to be confirmed and the Easter programme coming up.
