Looking ahead to the game against Southport….

HARRIERS head to Southport in National League North on Saturday after an enforced break last weekend.
Rain had put paid to the game against Guiseley, set to be played at Aggborough, on 29th February, leaving the Reds without action.
They’ll get back at it with the lengthy trip to one of their oldest rivals, Saturday’s fixture being the 39th meeting between Harriers and Southport.
The most recent one, earlier this season, saw the Sangrounders pick up a 1-0 victory at Aggborough at the end of November, while the first was some 34 years ago, an FA Trophy clash that ended in a 1-1 draw with Kim Casey on target.
Southport v Harriers 07/03/20: Russ Penn pre-match interview
Moving back to the present day, Russ Penn hopes to have a full squad to choose from, with Declan Weeks edging towards being able to take part in some semblance of match action in the imminent future.
Weeks has been missing for several months with a toe injury, but has steadily worked his way through his rehab to a point where he’ll be back involved shortly.
Just as Harriers will be looking to get back to winning ways on Saturday after defeat to York City a fortnight ago, Southport are keen to get back on track themselves after a 1-0 reverse to Leamington. Prior to that, they’d secured successive score draws against Brackley, Hereford and Bradford (Park Avenue).
Kick-off at Southport is at 3pm.
