HARRIERS are back in action at Aggborough on Saturday for the visit of title-chasing York City.
The Reds are looking to build on what is their best form of an inconsistent season, the team four matches unbeaten going into the test against the Minstermen.
Ahead of Saturday, York are just a point off the summit and leaders King’s Lynn – although they have played a couple of games more than the current incumbent.
City nonetheless have had an incredible season on the whole, thrust into the promotion mix thanks to an unbeaten run that stretched from the opening day all the way up to November 10th. Ironically, the final match before that streak ended was the reverse fixture against Harriers, a 1-1 draw at Bootham Crescent.

Most recently, though, that form has realigned itself and, while they were beaten in their last fixture at Boston United, City have picked up wins against Chester, Kettering, Telford and Southport.
The clash on Saturday is the 33rd meeting between the two teams – the first was a little under 20 years ago, and was a 3-1 win for Harriers at Aggborough.
Harriers are likely to still be without Declan Weeks and Samir Nabi for the game, but both have resumed light training following injuries.
Kick-off at Aggborough on Saturday is at 3pm.
