Incredibly that was the signal for the board to order a playing staff clearout now that the possible financial rewards of a visit to Wembley had passed us by. How the world moves!
Now we have the chance to revenge that game and also get some points, and confidence, on the board because at the moment we don't look very slick and the goals aren't going in.
That could well change with the home debut of Robbie Matthews and now, with a bit of training together, the Barnes-Homer/Matthews partnership will click and the goals will go rattling in.
Kettering are also having a slow start to their season and on Saturday they lost at home to newly promoted AFC Wimbledon by two goals to one. They drew at home to Oxford in midweek but beat a poor Forest Green side on the opening day. In fact they're slightly above us in the table on the same number of points but they have scored a few more goals than us.
They have a couple of injuries to Ian Roper (knee) and Lee Fowler (stitches above the eye) but he could well be ok for the game. Roper is very doubtful.
We just have Aaron Farrell to worry about but now with the arrival of Matthews he's gone down the pecking order anyway.
This should be the toughest game of the new campaign so far and it'll be a good measure of wether this side will really be able to achieve anything this season. I think we'll get a better result than last season but only slightly better with a goal less draw.
