Harriers let Bishop return

Kidderminster boss Ian Britton has decided against extending Andy Bishop's loan spell and the striker has returned to Walsall.
Despite scoring the first goal in The Harriers' 2-1 win over Carlisle last weekend, the 21-year-old, by his own admission, has struggled to rediscover the same form that made him such a hit at Aggborough on his loan spell last term.
Bishop has struggled with tendonitis of the knee since arriving at the Third Division club and so Britton has decided to let the striker return to The Bescot Stadium.
"I've still no doubts that 'Bish' has the potential to do well in the game but unfortunately things haven't really worked out as well as both parties would have hoped this season," Britton told the club's official website.
"Hopefully he has learnt a lot from his time here and the experience he has gained will stand him in good stead. We wish him well at Walsall."
In other news, Harriers have allowed striker Matt Lewis to stay on loan at Hinckley Town.
Lewis teamed up with the Dr Martens Premier League outfit last month and has bagged an impressive return of five goals in five appearances.
However, Britton was adamant he would recall the striker at a moment's notice should his own club need him.
Britton added: "Going to Hinckley has done him the world of good. He's scoring goals there and we have seen a visible improvement in his performance during training. He is doing well.
"We'll continue to keep an eye on him and I won't hesitate to bring him back when I feel he is ready for League action."
