MANSFIELD Town face a massive test on Saturday when play-off chasing Kidderminster Harriers put their 11-game unbeaten run on the line at Field Mill.

Like the last home game with Luton, this game also kicks-off at noon, avoiding a clash with the 3pm England Euro qualifier against Wales.

Stags’ record against the leading clubs this season is poor and Harriers, whose boss Steve Burr has just signed a new three-year deal, are fifth in the table, despite a five-point deduction for a breach of financial regulations, and won 2-1 at high-flying AFC Wimbledon last time out.

“Kidderminster are a good team and very well organised,” said Stags’ assistant boss Paul Hall.

“But our boys are in form too and I don’t think Kidderminster will want to be playing us right now, though they won’t lie down and give us the three points.

“I know the play-offs are a big ask but if we can win our four games in hand who knows? And right now we should feel like we can beat anyone.”

Stags have Gary Silk back in training after a foot injury as well as Kyle Nix, who was knocked unconscious at Luton last weekend.

But there are big doubts over Danny Mitchley (groin) and Dan Spence (hamstring) while Ashley Cain is highly unlikely to have recovered from a dead leg.
