MATCH PREVIEW: KETTERING TOWN v DUNSTABLE TOWN
With Dunstable Town taking on mid-table Kettering Town this weekend, Blues boss Tony Fontenelle hopes to see an end to the poor run of form which has seen his side slip out of the play-off places.
Dunstable have lost two games on the bounce, with their most recent match a 2-0 defeat at home to King’s Lynn Town.
Kettering Town currently sit in 13th in the Southern Premier League, with 44 points, but are only eight points off sixth placed Dunstable, with three games in hand.
Without giving away too much, Fontenelle said ahead of our away match: “We have worked hard on things in training, we have gone back to basics, but I like to use the analogy, if you hit a good shot in golf, you think ‘what a good shot’, but if you hit a bad one, you look at every little detail of how it went wrong.”
Tomorrow’s opponents are managed by Marcus Law, who originally took over the club when they were in what is now the National League in 2011, before departing for Tamworth, he then returned to Latimer Park last summer.
Kettering also have a fantastic fan base, with the Latimer Park outfit averaging crowds of over 500.
Fontenelle said: “They’ve got massive home support, they’ll see us as the underdogs, as they are a massive club.
“For us to be able to compete with these teams is a testament to how far Dunstable Town has come.”
Blues midfielder Chris Vardy and new signing David Longe-King played for the Development side during the week, and hope to feature in some capacity this weekend.
Dunstable Town who are sixth, travel to Kettering Town on Saturday 20th February, with 3:00pm kick-off.
