SKIPPER Ryan Croasdale knows Saturday’s game at Spennymoor is the latest in a tough run for Harriers (ko 3pm).
The reds visit the Moors with the two teams almost neck and neck in a very competitive league table.
And it comes after the team secured an important 2-1 win on the road in midweek at Curzon Ashton.
Spennymoor, meanwhile, were also busy in midweek as they booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Buildbase FA Trophy with a 5-2 win over East Thurrock.
All in all, it has the makings of a terrific encounter, with Harriers suitably boosted by the fine three points collected on Monday.
“It is a tough few weeks coming up,” Croasdale told our official YouTube channel.
“In the last three games we have been excellent and getting an away win [on Monday] was really important for us.
"...they will be tough to play against, but we have got the capability of doing it." Ryan Croasdale
“I still feel we could have scored more goals away from home because we have had the chances, so we are taking that confidence into Spennymoor on Saturday.
“It’s a tough game but we have some work on them, they will be tough to play against, but we have got the capability of doing it.
“They’re only a couple of points behind us so it is really close… the league is so tough, so for every game we have to take our A game.”
The skipper himself is in fine form. The midfielder has put in some all-action displays and was on the score sheet at the Tameside Stadium as he netted his sixth goal of the campaign.
The squad, meanwhile, was boosted by the return of Dan Bradley in midweek as he stepped off the bench in the second half after time out with injury.
With no serious comeback on that injury it’s hoped he’ll again be good to go at Spennymoor, so too Liam Truslove who is edging closer to a return after an injury of his own.
Supporters should note that, due to adverse weather conditions, there will be a pitch inspection at Spennymoor’s ground at 7am on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 3:00pm on Saturday.
