Harriers should be unchanged Steve Burr is expected to name an unchanged line-up for the third successive game when Kidderminster take on Hereford for the second time in six days.
On Boxing Day, Burr kept faith with the side that thumped Dartford 5-1 and he was rewarded with a seventh consecutive league victory as Jamille Matt scored the only goal in the 1-0 win at Edgar Street.
And any weary bodies were given the opportunity to rest up after Harriers' trip to Forest Green on Saturday fell foul of the weather.
New defensive signing Sam Smith may have to be content with a place on the bench, while winger Sean Clancy is still to make his full debut following two brief substitute appearances.
Danny Pilkington (thigh) and Callum Gittings (knock) will have benefitted from the weekend off as they close in on a return to fitness, but Marvin Johnson (fractured toe) and Jack Byrne (Achilles) remain out.
Andy Gallinagh is a major doubt for Hereford.
The Bulls defender made his first appearance in a fortnight from the bench during the Boxing Day defeat to the Harriers at Edgar Street but was substituted just eight minutes after coming onto the field with a foot injury.
Gallinagh needed eight stitches after the game following a tackle from Mickey Demetriou and is unlikely to recover in time for the return encounter.
The former Cheltenham man joins Chris Carruthers (Achilles), Marlon Jackson (ankle) and Ryan Bowman (medial ligament) on the sidelines, although Saturday's postponed home game against Newport County might have done some favours for the walking wounded in Martin Foyle's squad.
Marley Watkins made his first start since early October on Boxing Day and is set to continue to lead the line alongside Kyle Perry.
Kidderminster vs Hereford
Last modified 17:05 01/01/13
Bulls bite back Hereford gained revenge for their Boxing Day defeat to in-form Kidderminster with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Aggborough.
The Bulls lost 1-0 to Harriers on Wednesday but they led after just 13 minutes when Josh Gowling fouled Chris Sharp in the box and Joshua O'Keefe found the bottom corner with his spot-kick.
The home side, who had won their last seven games, were only denied an equaliser before the break by the width of the post, Jamille Matt's volley crashing off James Bittner's woodwork.
And in first-half added time Bittner pulled off a wonderful save to deny Matt again.
