Kidderminster Harriers v Chester FC – Vanarama National League
When and where?
Saturday, February 30 (3pm) at the J Davidson Stadium (DY10 1NB).
Any team news?
The Blues have no fresh fitness concerns so should have a full-strength squad to choose from with the exception of midfielder Luke George, who remains sidelined with a hamstring problem.
Chester manager Steve Burr is expected to retain the same XI that performed so well against Altrincham midweek. He employed three central defenders and packed the midfield with Ryan Lloyd and Danny O'Brien impressing as wing-backs.
John Rooney, Sam Hughes and Craig Mahon offered a good balance in the middle of the park while Jordan Chapell produced his best display for the club in a free role behind leading scorer Ross Hannah.
Tony Thompson looks certain to keep his place in goal after keeping a clean-sheet on his debut.
Should Burr decide a change is needed, he has a strong bench to choose from with James Alabi, Johnny Hunt and Ryan Higgins waiting to come in.
Tell me about Kidderminster...
The 2015-16 season has been a nightmare for Kiddy supporters with Harriers onto their third manager of the campaign having sacked Gary Whild and David Hockaday.
The club exited the FA Cup and the FA Trophy at the first time of asking, losing to lower league neighbours Stourbridge in both competitions.
Up until the start of this month Kidderminster had won twice in 28 league games, leaving them rooted at the bottom the National League.
However, prior to a 2-0 defeat at leaders Cheltenham Town on Tuesday, Harriers won three games in a row under new manager Colin Gordon, who is the chief executive and majority shareholder.
That has taken them off the foot of the table but Kiddy remain nine points away from safety with 14 games to go.
Ex-Gloucester City striker Harry White has been a big part of that revival after he arrived on loan from League One side Barnsley.
Ben Whitfield, on loan from Premier League outfit Bournemouth, has been a rare bright spot in a miserable season while the additions of ex-Macclesfield Town winger Arthur Gnahoua and the experienced Keith Lowe have coincided with the winning run.
What is their recent form like?
What happened the last time the two sides met?
Ross Hannah scored twice and John Rooney netted on his 100th appearance as Chester came from behind to beat Kidderminster 3-1 in a fast-paced contest in November .
Chester bossed the first period but failed to convert that pressure into a lead with Hannah missing a glorious chance and Kidderminster punished them on 40 minutes when Kelvin Langmead slid home from close range to give his side an unlikely lead.
The Blues needed an instant response and got one with Hannah making amends for his earlier miss, finishing off an inviting James Roberts cross three minutes later as the half ended level.
The second-half was 33 seconds old when Rooney put the Blues head for the first time with a well-placed shot from the edge of the area.
Chester remained the team on top with the Harriers unable to cause them real problems and it was no surprise when Hannah got his second on 82 minutes when Dean Snedker parried Rooney's shot into his path for a bread-and-butter finish for a striker of his class.
What are the match odds (Sky Bet)?
