Come on Harriers

Tonight I'll be attending the Srey Bandol exhibition at Meta House but secretly I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for a Kidderminster Harriers win in one of the biggest days of the British football calendar, the 3rd Round of the FA Cup. This is the round where the minnows, the underdogs, effectively teams like Kidderminster, get the chance to upset the form book and inflict disgrace and embarrassment over their bigger opponents. This season, Kidderminster have beaten King's Lynn, Cambridge United and Curzon Ashton to get to this point, whilst for mid-table Championship team Coventry City, it will be their first game in the competition. Harriers now play in the Blue Square Conference, some three divisions below Coventry and are in 3rd spot in the table, on a good run of form and will fancy their chances of putting on a good show at the Ricoh Stadium, home of the Sky Blues. If I was in the UK I would be amongst the 2,500-plus Harriers fans who'll be cheering their team throughout the 90 minutes later today. I'm not, so I'll have to make do with the internet to find out the result. To read more about my football allegiances, click here.
Postscript: Harriers lost 2-nil to Coventry. Oh well, there's always next year.
