Kidderminster Harriers will be hoping to cause a cup upset at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday and will have plenty of backing from their fans.

Over 2,100 tickets have already been sold by the Blue Square Premier side, who currently lie 3rd in the table and enjoyed an impressive win at Torquay on Sunday.

Whatever the result on the pitch, Harriers’ run to the 3rd Round has proved vital off it.

Chairman Barry Norgrove told BBC Hereford and Worcester that the effects of the credit crunch have been staved off slightly by progression through the competition.

‘Everybody’s in the same boat, but nobody more than myself as I am a house builder and the industry is flat,’ he said.

‘Without this FA Cup run I would have been struggling to keep the club afloat.’
