HEREFORD manager Josh Gowling says his side will face a good Kidderminster Harriers side with ‘really gifted players’ on Saturday in the FA Trophy.

Last years FA Trophy finalists Hereford meet a tough test in the second round of the competition with the winner receiving £3,750.

Harriers have won seven of their last eight matches and are sitting high in fourth place in the National League North and six points behind the leaders.

“They are a good side and were a good side last year,” said Gowling.

“I think they’ve had a really good start last year and fell away towards the end of the season but they always start strongly.

“They’ve got some really gifted players especially in wide areas and up top with (Amari) Morgan-Smith, (Ashley) Hemmings and (Omari) Sterling-James that are pleasers.

“Then they’ve got (Sam) Austin who works really hard in the number 10 pocket. They’ve got some really good players and the manager gets to work with them every day which is something I want to get to.

“As a football club we want to be full-time which would be good because for me the more time you get to spend with the players the more you can hone your craft.

“They are a good side that play attacking football, score lots of goals and not concede many which is a recipe for success.

“We’ve got to halt that run. We have worked on a few things which are weaknesses that we believe they have and hopefully we can implement that on Saturday and get the result.”

Miles Storey will miss the game as he continues his concussion protocol with light work and is expected to start training next week.

Harry Pinchard has a niggling groin injury and will be ‘fed back In slowly’. George Forsyth is still recovering from an ankle injury.

Ben Pollock is back in training but a decision on his availability will be made after a doctor appointment on Friday.

Meanwhile, Jaanai Gordon is available and is not cup tied despite sitting on the bench for Stratford in a previous round.
