Moyes treats Kiddie as he did Leeds

Kidderminster Harriers FC | Aggborough | Football Ground Guide
David Moyes has scouted Kidderminster twice so far this campaign and will take every precaution possible against the non leaguers at the Aggborough Stadium tomorrow (Sat).
No doubt the National League northern team will race at us from kick off full of confidence that comes from a table position of third after a run of good results.
But Moyes, as one would expect from the man, is taking this one as seriously as he would were we facing Chelsea for example – embarrassment is not the name of the game.
Kiddie have a decent FA Cup record historically and are in a place this time around where they will fancy their chances but Moyes is unlikely to take any chances with his team and we have been told will also name a very strong bench.
Respect is the name of the game and it’s clear that the manager is desperately keen to win a trophy for the Hammers for the first time in over 40 years having mentioned the fact two or three times in recent weeks.

He said of the game: “I would hope that we would always give any club respect, and with respect, you might not know all their players or how the stadium looks, so you have to do even more work and be as prepared as you possibly can be.

“We did a good job against Leeds in the first game, and I would put Kidderminster in that same category: it’s another tough game for us.
“We’ve got to prepare right, be ready, inform the players as much as we can regarding their players and how we see the game going, and we’ll try and do that.”
