    Probably Kiddy? Probably?

    You have obviously never been or more importantly tried their food. DEFINITELY KIDDY.

    Come on Harriers, everyone wants you back up.

    I have... but not since you were a nipper. I don't think I could want someone up purely for food!

    What's the reason for South attendances being so much lower than North ones?

    Probably because my away trips this season and next as a Curzon fan are nearly the trips I used to do as a Carlisle fan 10 odd years ago in league.

    Some good sized clubs in a tough league, near 6000 at Stockport last sat

    Pretty much the clubs in the north are bigger at the moment, more so now York will be there. Just a fluke of geography currently.

    Not just the food tbf. Decent pubs, including the Harriers arms on site, good banter and quality away end. Plus it's easy to get to. It's gotta be them.

    I would say since we've got relegated a new pub called the Beer Emporium has opened up just down the road and I would highly recommend it to any fans.

    But if I'm honest my money would be on Halifax, they are the in form team and we've dropped off recently, especially away from home.

    Fleet and Kiddy for me. Gravesend have served their time, and B2TF will post in the National threads whether Hailfax go up or not so I'd rather the other well known side up. Really though so long as the Plastics of '92 don't come up I don't mind.

    Looking forward to tonight, think over two legs we have to be favourites despite our results against Chorley this year.
    Since we last played them, we have Ironside, and he has made a world of difference. We will also have Hornby in goal over Palmer, who was partly at fault for the 2nd goal at their place.

    If we take a draw back to Aggborough, that'd be a positive result given our recent home record. I think its something like 14/15 wins, we're just average on the road.

    Not a lot happened at Chorley, we've hit the bar and they went close with a free kick.

    Expected it to be close with 2 of the best defences in the league.

    1 foot in the final.

    Dull game tbh but sometimes it takes a bit of magic to win a game. Will be interesting to see how Chorley line up on Sunday they need to go for it so they can't be playing 5 at the back.

    Good result tonight harrier. Difficult place to go Chorley. Both games are finally balanced though, think Kiddy - Salford final personally

    Once again, our failure to score has cost us, this is the story of the season, I guess a bit similar to Stockport with a lack of goals. Kidderminster were very good first twenty minutes, didn't think there was much in it after that, they scored a brilliant goal, would have graced any game. Disappointed with the substitutions Jansen made, we needed a goal and he introduced two midfielders and a full back/wing back, we had a couple of players on the bench (the two not used) who might have changed to game but no bloody O'Keefe has to be brought on again. Oh well it's only half time I guess but we will have to play a lot better on Sundday to turn it around.

    If anybody wants to see Gnahoua's screamer



    The touch, the glide past 2 defenders and to finish it off a rocket of a shot

    Far bigger clubs in the North.

    I'd say we're the biggest club in the South, but wouldn't even be in the top 5 biggest in the North. It's always been better supported in that division, but recently there's been a huge difference. Also a much better standard of ground in that league.

    Hampton 1-2 Fleet. (1,689 crowd, probably about 600-700 or so of us)

    One foot in the final. After failing to beat Hampton in two games during the season and them finishing 7th and 27 points behind us, I was worried.

    A cracking atmosphere from our lot, and we were rewarded with an early goal. Dean Rance, recalled to the starting line-up, struck what looked to be a nothing shot from 20 yards out, but it took a huge deflection and the keeper was massively wrong footed.

    It was a bit of pinball after that until 43rd minute, when Sam Deering (i think) went down in the box under 2 challenges. Not sure if there was much contact, but oh well! Duly dispatched by Aaron McLean. Was still celebrating and I realised it was 2-1, although there wasn't too much noise from Hampton! Apparently Nathan Ashmore spilled a speculative long range effort and their guy was there to tap into an empty net. His only mistake this season though, so I'll forgive him!

    It's set up nicely for Sunday at home, where we've been so much better. Hopefully no penalties needed like against Shitehawk last season!

    Josh O'Keefe! Still winding up the fans of every team he plays for, I see. One of the worst midfielders to ever play for the imps.

    Well, they'll have to shape up better than they did last night- absolutely no idea how to crack our now resolute defence. Only 8 conceded in last 18 games, with 10 clean sheets. I fancy another clean sheet on Sunday and the lads up front to do the rest. We'll see. :bdick:

    About a 3rd of the Salford fans had left the main stand with 10mins to go before they equalised.

    Fans is a bit of stretch to describe most of the people watching Salford.
