John Beck isn’t expecting anything different when Kettering Town take on Wisbech Town in tomorrow’s (Tuesday) FA Cup first qualifying round replay.

The Poppies were again poor in the final third as they claimed their sixth draw in seven matches this season in Saturday’s 0-0 stalemate in Cambridgeshire.

The two teams will do it all again at Nene Park tomorrow night.

And boss Beck has conceded that things “aren’t good enough” on the pitch at present.

Beck said: “We said from the start that we hope the fans are patient with us and I said we probably won’t look like a team until at least Christmas.

“But we look a poor side at the moment.

“I don’t expect anything different on Tuesday night.

“We are what we are, which is poor at the moment.

“They are what they are – a side two divisions below us.

“It could have gone either way on Satrday and us just saying that means it is not good enough.

“I keep on about patience but at the moment we don’t look like a team and that has to change.”

The Poppies’ season has once again been hit by off-field issues with the squad having now understood to have received an amount of money for their wages, which were not paid in full as expected last Wednesday.

The short and long-term future of the club also remains in doubt with Imraan Ladak now the last remaining director of the club as well as still being the majority shareholder.
