Assistant boss looking forward to Bulls test and home return
The Town squad will be told of the importance behind Saturday’s game with Hereford knowing that a victory could send them nine points clear of Cambridge United in the Skrill Premier.
The Hatters go into the meeting with the Bulls at Kenilworth Road aiming to make it 22 league matches without defeat and assistant manager Terry Harris believes the players will be told to grasp that opportunity with both hands.
“One of the things we will be telling the team is that we have a great chance to open up that kind of gap and we’ve got to take it,” Harris told the media on Thursday afternoon. “Hereford will have something to say about that, I’m sure, but the opportunity is there and it will be nice if we could do that.”
It will also be the Town’s first home match in three weeks – since the 3-0 win over Nuneaton on 25th January – following the postponement of last Saturday’s game with Tamworth.
And Harris is looking forward to returning to Kenilworth Road after such a gap between home fixtures.
“It’ll be nice for us to play at home again because Kenilworth Road has become a special place for us [the staff] and the crowd has been really getting behind so it will be nice to come home,” said Harris.
“There’s a buzz around the place but with the buzz comes expectation. The way we play, at a high tempo and putting teams under pressure, helps get the crowd behind us and we’ll be hoping for more of the same on Saturday.”
