HARRIERS once again get back to action as the festive period of games gets underway with Saturday's trip to Altrincham.
The Reds were again without action last weekend having exited the FA Trophy.
They'll now travel to meet the Robins, who also had their interest in that competition ended, albeit a round later, after being defeat by Farsley Celtic in midweek after a replay and extra time.
The game on Saturday kicks off at 3:00pm
On-loan goalkeeper Will Mannion on the trip:
"The weekend off has actually helped freshen the legs a little bit and getting everyone's head right.
"I think we're positive going in to Saturday. It should be a very good game and the standard will be very high.
"We'll both want to win the game; I know we do and if we keep doing what we've been doing, we've got every chance."
Boss Jimmy Shan updated the club's website this week with the news that Ed Williams and Richard Peniket are closing in on a return.
There was no confirmation that either would be fit to feature this coming weekend, but the prospect of them featuring sooner rather than later loos good.
Meanwhile, Declan Weeks and Ashley Hemmings will also be assessed ahead of the trip.
Harry Higginson, back from his loan at Bromsgrove Sporting which ended this week, is recovering from a knee issue and won't be involved at Altrincham.

Do I know you?
The most recent name to enter the 'played for both' category is Harriers man, Ashley Hemmings.
The former Wolves youngster signed for the Reds a couple of months ago, cutting short a loan stint with the Robins to do so.
Meanwhile, current Alty man, Jake Moult, donned the Harriers jersey during 2008.
Additionally, there is a long list of players who have played for both sides; including Wayne Thomas, Michael Carr, Mike Williams, Josh O'Keefe, Brian Smikle, Sean Clancy, James Lawrie and Scott Phelan.
Altrincham have been regular opponents for Harriers for a number of decades, and more recently, have encountered each other ten times in the past five years.
Last season, Harriers came out on top in an entertaining Aggborough match, winning 3-2 - Ed Williams and Ashley Chambers were among the goals on that day.
Earlier this season, however, the most recent meeting of the two sides ended in a victory for Harriers at Aggborough.
