Match preview Vs Kettering


Date: 16-10-10gif Venue: Elgoods Brewery Arenagif Kick off: 15:00hrs
Iyseden Christie It's one of our closer away trips tomorrow, a bit further than Tamworth and slightly nearer than Rushden, when we travel to whatever Ketterings ground is called now.  Last season it was something to do with cricket and this year it's about a piss up.

We'll be going there on the back of a good home record but our away form isn't good reading having only won twice on the road and the last one coming at Altrincham at the start of September.

Ketterings form has taken off in recent games following the appointment of a new manager.  Marcus Law, who?, was appointed the new manager on October 1st from Leicestershire side Barwell.  The 34yr old former Bristol Rovers and Stafford Rangers goalkeeper (as was their former manager Lee Harper) seems to be working wonders there and Kettering are unbeaten under him.

They'll be without the former Harriers legend Iyseden Christie (right) with a knee injury as is goalkeeper Nathan Abbey.  Ashley Westwood is set to start a four match ban following his straight red card at Southport last Saturday.  Sol Davis could be fit to play after coming through a practise game at Peterborough Utd on Tuesday while skipper John Dempster is now available again following a one match suspension.

We'll have to try hard to replicate our home form on our travels but one day it's going to happen.  We should be almost at full strength for the game with a slight doubt surrounding Mike Williams.  He picked up a minor injury before the Wales C game in midweek but should be fit.  His brother Marc played in the game and came through with no problems.

Also on international duty was Nick Wright and he too came back home from Estonia injury free.

The only other injury waiting on is to Ollie Thorne.  He missed the win at home to Grimsby on Sunday but should be ok by now and be ready to face Kettering.

I think we're all hoping for a win but Kettering have improved of late so I think a draw should be a good result for us.
