CLIFF Moyo says Harriers need to “go and get the job done” at his former club Guiseley on Tuesday night.
After bad weather put paid to Harriers’ attempts to end their lengthy spell away from action originally started by a COVID outbreak in early January, the team are at last scheduled to feature at Nethermoor on Tuesday night.
Looking to get themselves back to winning ways, Russ Penn’s men come up against a Lions side who’ve endured a tough start to the National League North term.
They may be just above the drop zone, but as a former player of theirs, Moyo knows the league standings are all but immaterial.
“You can’t really look at the league table against a team like Guiseley,” he insisted.
“I’ve been there myself and I know what both the Managers are like… they’re a very organised, well-drilled team and we’ve got to step up to the plate.
“It’s not easy – it’s a tight, family club and we’ve got to go there and make a statement.
“They’ll make it difficult for anyone but we’ve got to go and get the job done.”
As with the proposed games against Boston and Darlington, bested by the weather in the last week, Harriers will travel north with a fully-fit squad. Penn is only unable to call on the suspended Amari Morgan-Smith.
Moyo admits the squad are raring to go and, with the weather now much less likely to intervene, says everyone is focused on getting the right result on Tuesday.
Reflecting on a chaotic last couple of weeks, he added: “We’re all looking forward to it – there have been a lot of issues that have been happening, but it’s about time.
“We just want to get out there and play. Obviously there are things out of our control but, fingers crossed it goes on tomorrow.
“You think ‘we’re ready now, we’re going to play’ and it snows! It’s one of those things, out of our control again – all we’ve got to do is keep preparing for the next one, and that’s tomorrow.”
Kick-off at Guiseley on Tuesday is at 7:45pm.
