United primed for Harriers challenge

By Craig Singleton

Boston United boss Dennis Greene will check on his walking wounded ahead of Saturday’s home clash against Kidderminster Harriers.

Greene is hopeful that Herve Pepe-Ngoma (calf) and Jay Rollins (hamstring) could return for the visit of high-flying Harriers — but a host of other players are ruled out of contention.

Long-term casualties Nat Brown (hip) and Shane Clarke (Achilles) are joined on the sidelines by hamstring injury sufferers Kalern Thomas, Callum Chippendale and Waide Fairhurst, while Grant Roberts (knee) is the latest to join the list of injuries.

Ipswich Town loan signing Joe Robinson has received clearance from the Football Association and National League and is expected to make his United debut at the heart of defence.

Notts County loanee Jack McMillan is in line to make his home debut after appearing for the first time in last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Chorley.

Opponents Kidderminster have won both away matches to date this season — 6-1 at Curzon Ashton and 2-0 at Nuneaton Town. They have taken 10 points from a possible 15 overall.

Their last league visit to York Street unfolded in April 2005, when United won 3-0. Harriers won 3-0 in a later visit in 2005 in the LDV Vans Trophy.

Saturday’s match referee is Anthony Tankard and kick-off is at 3.00pm.

Updates for those not in attendance will be available on Twitter.
