The penalty save by Poppies keeper McAlindon gives Kettering Town another opportunity to progress in this season’s FA Cup, but they have to travel to Bamber Bridge on Tuesday night and overcome a well-organised outfit that proved very difficult to breakdown in the first tie. The Poppies strike force will need to re-discover their goal-scoring prowess and battle hard to get through to the next stage and claim the £7,500 in prize money.
