A tough away fixture this Saturday as Kettering Town travel to the East coast to take on Lowestoft Town. The Poppies have two games in-hand of second-placed Stourbridge and will be looking to keep up the pressure on their title rivals.

An early goal on five minutes by Rhys Hoenes was enough to give Kettering all three points but they had to endure a tense afternoon when they were reduced to ten men with the sending off of Aaron O’Connor. It was virtually one-way traffic towards the Poppies goal but they held out defiantly and claimed a vital away win and all three points.
