HK: Big week ahead but it's one game at a time for us

15 March 2018

Reds face one of their biggest weeks of the season as they bid to close the five-point gap on the League 2 play-offs.

Harry Kewell's men make their longest journey of the season to Carlisle United on Saturday before home games against Wycombe Wanderers next Wednesday and Cheltenham Town three days later.
 
But for the Head Coach and the squad, who travelled to Cumbria on Thursday to prepare, it's all about Saturday's test at Brunton Park.
 
He said: "There's ten games to go and we now have three in a week. You could say the next week might shape the rest of the season for us but I don't look at it that way at all.
 
"All I am concerned about is Carlisle on Saturday and what we all know is going to be a tough game.
 
"If we could get a result there we could bring them that bit closer to us and our entire focus is on doing that. There is no talk among my players about what's coming up after Carlisle. We just focus, focus, focus on Saturday."
 
The hosts are unbeaten in five and won 1-0 at the Checkatrade earlier in the season.
 
"It's going to be very tough to get something out of the game," added the boss. "They turned us over at our place and are going well - they like to play and they have two good strikers, plus they are at home.
 
"But we have gone to quite a few difficult places this season and got a result. We will have to earn the right to play our football and when the chances do come we'll have to be clinical. If we do that and if we play to the levels we are capable of, and which we've showed on a pretty consistent basis in the last couple of months or so, then we've got a chance."
 
Josh Yorwerth has to sit out the next two games through suspension. "We've got that to contend with and one or two other injuries but I'm not going to say any more than that," added Harry.
