YORK City will be hoping to become the first club to win at Kidderminster since the opening day of the National League North season.

The Minstermen are aiming to succeed where 11 teams have failed following Chorley’s 1-0 victory at Aggborough on the first weekend of August.

Since that reverse, John Eustace’s men have won seven and drawn four matches on their own soil, where they also managed 13 consecutive wins last term.

Only unbeaten Brackley can beat the Harriers’ record of one National League North defeat in front of their own fans during 2017/18 and a clean sheet against the Minstermen will represent their best run of successive shut-outs at home for nine years, with North Ferriby (4-0), Boston (2-0) and Gainsborough (3-0) all seen off without anything to cheer in recent weeks.

A tally of 24 home goals is also the division’s second-best tally behind Stockport (26).

Kidderminster have not been shabby on their travels either over the last three months, having been unbeaten in nine league outings since a 2-1 loss at Tamworth on September 12.

In fact, their only loss in 14 matches came against higher-division hosts Fylde in a 4-2 FA Cup first-round clash last month and Eustace’s team have netted during each of their last 18 games since a 2-0 defeat at Brackley.

Former Sheffield United striker Joe Ironside is the team’s leading marksman on 14 goals, including a run of six in his last five outings and the strong form has seen Harriers move into the division’s final play-off spot.

No fellow National League North outfit has drawn more games, though, with Kiddy sharing the spoils on seven occasions this term.

Right-back Lee Vaughan (broken leg) and midfielder Dan Bradley (knee) remain long-term absentees.

Vaughan’s fellow right-back James Pearson is also doubtful with a hamstring injury.

Former City utility man Yan Klukowski, meanwhile, is yet to start a game following his loan switch from Torquay, making four substitute outings following his debut as a second-half replacement in last month’s 1-1 league draw at Bootham Crescent.

Whether he features will depend on Torquay being prepared to have him cup-tied for the competition.

Kidderminster set up tomorrow’s clash after beating league rivals Boston in a third qualifying round home replay.
