MANAGER Gary Hackett could be handed a big attacking boost ahead of Stourbridge's FA Cup clash with Kidderminster Harriers.

Both Greg Mills and Luke Benbow should be back to fitness in time to feature against their National League North neighbours this Saturday (3pm kick-off).

Winger Mills and striker Benbow haven't featured in recent weeks but are finally on the brink of a return.

The last time the teams met in the contest it was the Glassboys that progressed thanks to a 3-0 win over Dave Hockaday's Harriers in 2015.

Hackett is looking forward to another big occasion at Amblecote.

He said: "We know they are a very good side and will be totally different from the last time we played them, which was when they looked low on confidence and were on a poor run.

"This will be tougher and they'll be big favourites. But, by the same token, if we turn up and they don't play to their very best then we are capable of causing an upset.

"It's another great occasion and both sets of fans are likely to turn up in good numbers and it'll all make for a cracking FA Cup tie."

Meanwhile, Stour moved to third in the Southern League Central Division after victory over Needham Market at the War Memorial Ground last Saturday.

A brace from winger Callum Powell and a strike from Kaiman Anderson helped the Glassboys to a 3-1 home win last Saturday.

Hackett was pleased with the win and welcomed the potential selection headache should key men now return.

He added: "I think we could have scored more than the three we got and we were even more comfortable than the scoreline suggests.

"Both Kaiman and Callum have got goals in them. Kaiman has three in four games now and that should do his confidence the world of good.

"He has a good record in front of goal at this level but it didn't quite happen for him last season. Now we're starting to see what he can do and he's leading the line really well.

"We all know what Callum in capable of when he's positive and taking people on.

"Having more options to choose from is a positive headache to have and I'd much rather that than the other way around."

A youthful Stour side will be sent to Evesham in the Southern League Cup on Wednesday night before attention turns to the FA Cup.

"I will be making changes but that's why we have a strong squad," confirmed the boss. "Greg Mills will hopefully get 45 minutes and even if Luke Benbow isn't ready he should be for Saturday.

"The likes of Jake Evans, Tom Edmunds-Hill, Niall Maher and Kouridjane Attoumani could be involved. We will have to make changes because of the game at the weekend but it'll still be a side capable of getting the win."

One player that won't make the Kidderminster tie is defender Jack Duggan. He is still 10 days away from a return from a hamstring injury.
