ALTRINCHAM head to Aggborough to take on Kidderminster Harriers this afternoon as Phil Parkinson's men look to follow up the impressive win over Leamington by picking up the first away win of the season.

The Robins have struggled on their travels thus far with any momentum from a good result usually being stopped when the team play away from the J. Davidson Stadium, and they will want to turn that around quickly to push up the table.

Goals from Jordan Hulme, a brace from Josh Hancock and a strike from Tom Peers in addition to an own goal saw Alty run out 5-0 winners against Leamington last weekend, so another three points will certainly be the target this time around.

Kidderminster have had a similar type of start to the campaign and are without a win over their last three games following a 1-1 draw at Blyth Spartans last weekend, so manager John Pemberton will be looking to stop that run quickly.

The sides met twice last campaign, with the first being a very entertaining fixture last September with Harriers coming away with a 3-2 win through goals from Ed Williams, Dan Bradley and Ashley Chambers, with John Johnston and Max Harrop striking for the Robins.

Alty then got revenge for that at the J. Davidson Stadium in March, with a 2-1 victory thanks to a header from James Jones & an own goal.

*Where there's a Will - Sean Williams does his best to get Alty on the scoresheet with this attempt on goal. Picture by Michael Ripley.

Altrincham continued to struggle away from home, with a 2-0 loss to full-time outfit Kidderminster Harriers.
An Ashley Chambers double was enough to give the Harriers their first win at home this season.
The hosts had the first chance of the game in the third minute, when left-back Correy Davidson found space and fired over the bar.
Alty’s first chance came six minutes later, Jordan Hulme playing a one-two with John Johnston and unhesitatingly hitting a shot that went just wide.
Kidderminster took the lead in the 11th minute, Ashley Chambers’ excellent left-footed chip beating Tony Thompson.
Things went from bad to worse for the Robins when James Jones went down injured four minutes later. The injury forced Phil Parkinson to make his first change of the game, Toby Mullarkey replacing Jones.
Alty saw a role reversal in the 19th minute. Hulme and Johnston linked up well again, but it was the latter, this time, who had the scoring opportunity, Johnston cutting inside and firing narrowly wide.
Just a minute later, Kidderminster had a chance at the other end, when Milan Butterfield found space for an effort that went wide.
Hulme and Johnston combined once more in the 25th minute, with a link-up that allowed Sean Williams to run to the edge of the box and receive the ball before shooting over.
Butterfield was booked earlier in the game for the hosts, though initially I thought there was nothing in in.
Mullarkey received Altrincham’s only yellow card of the game just before the half-hour-mark after pulling back Richard Peniket and preventing the forward from going one-on-one with Thompson.
Alty broke on the counter a minute later. Hulme and Johnston moved forward at pace and found Williams, whose drilled shot went just wide. 
It was end-to-end stuff, and Kidderminster would have doubled their lead in the 31st minute, but for an unbelievable save from Thompson. 
The Robins almost equalised through Josh Hancock five minutes later, but his effort was cleared off the line.
With four minutes left in the first-half, the hosts went close through Peniket, who hit the inside of the post.
Only a minute later, Kidderminster captain Cliff Moyo cynically fouled Johnston and received a yellow card, which, on another day, could easily have been a straight red.
Despite two minutes of added time, no more chances were created in the first-half and the whistle blew.
Half-time - Kidderminster Harriers 1, Altrincham 0
The second-half kicked-off with the Harriers looking the stronger. They had several chances in the opening 10 minutes before Chambers went close just before the hour-mark. His curling effort was saved well by Thompson. 
Alty boss Parkinson made his second change of the game in the 63rd minute, Hancock making way for Max Harrop. This substitution saw Alty change formation to a 3-4-3.
It was a change that, initially, caused a couple of problems for the Robins. Just two minutes later, Kidderminster doubled their lead, as Chambers latched on to a long ball and slotted past Thompson.
The hosts troubled Altrincham again seven minutes later, but it was Thompson to the rescue with a tremendous save.
Alty made their final substitution, as Hulme made way for Tom Peers in the 73rd minute.
Kidderminster looked very comfortable against the Robins’ three at the back, and they threatened again when Declan Weeks found space on the edge of the area but fired over.
The last 15 minutes was the quietest spell of the game, with no clear chances for either side, despite Alty pushing players forward in the vain hope of reducing the arrears.
The Harriers made two changes within a minute of each other. The 85th minute saw double goalscorer Chambers replaced by Alex Prosser, while Davidson left the field for Harry Higginson seconds later.
The referee indicated four minutes of additional time for Alty to somehow try to pull something out of the bag. But it was Kidderminster who came closest to scoring, Peniket firing over in the last of those four minutes.
The hosts just about had time to make their final substitution - Ollie Shelton coming on for Ed Williams - before the whistle sounded to leave Alty still searching for their first away win of the season.
Full-time - Kidderminster Harriers 2, Altrincham 0. Attendance - 1,436.
