A STOP-START season for Harriers gets going again with the trip to Darlington on Wednesday night.
The Reds were without action this past weekend after the game against King's Lynn was called off due to bad weather - the latest in a string of postponements.
Now, though, there's the lengthy trip to Blackwell Meadows to face the Quakers.
Brandon Diau's hopes on returning to the side:
“I was happy enough to make my debut against Spennymoor, but then this head injury knocked me out for about two weeks.
“Now a tight calf knocks me out for about a week, but I just can’t wait to finally get started and can’t wait to play.
“Now everything is off the table, I can focus on my football and trying to do those extra shifts because I’m getting back from injury.
“I look forward to every training session and [want] to be fit for every match.”
Diau was the team's only fresh injury concern going into last weekend, and remains so as he looks to shake off his calf injury.

Goalkeeper Adam Bartlett heads the list of players to have turned out for both sides. The custodian was a superb shot-stopper under Mark Yates at Aggborough, before also representing the Quakers with distinction.
Defender Johsh Heaton, striker John Williams, midfielder Aman Verma and hit-man Reece Styche have also worn both the red of Harriers and the black-and-white of Darlington.
Wednesday’s game is the 24th meeting between Harriers and this incarnation of Darlington.
Harriers have won ten of the previous 23, the last victory being a 5-2 success at Aggborough last August, with Joe Ironside among the scorers with a brace.
The return fixture was a forgetful 3-0 thumping at Blackwell Meadows back in January of this year.
Our very first win against the Quakers came all the way back in 1990, with Richard Forsyth and Kim Casey on target in a 3-1 win at Aggborough.
