Marcus Law remains confident that his Kettering Town squad will “come good” on home soil as they gear up for a crucial few days.

The Poppies’ wait for a first success of the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division season at Latimer Park continued on Saturday as Rene Howe was sent off in Dunstable Town’s 3-1 victory.

The defeat as left Kettering in mid-table at the 10-game mark and without home win in five attempts in the league.

They welcome Hayes & Yeading United to Latimer Park tomorrow (Tuesday) night before a showdown with old rivals Boston United in the third qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday,

And Law said: “That’s the good thing about football, there is always another game around the corner and you can soon turn things around.

“I am very confident and comfortable with this group and I am sure they will come good.

“There is something just not going our way. But we will power through it.

“You earn your luck so you have to keep trying to do the right things.

“It’s a long season and we will hang in there.”

James Brighton is set to be ruled out of tomorrow night’s match due to a hamstring injury he picked up at the weekend.

But Brett Solkhon should be back to full fitness after being an unused substitute having been suffering from illness all last week.

“We brought James off straight away,” Law added.

“He has tweaked his hamstring when he was over-stretching for a ball and we couldn’t take that risk. He won’t be fit for tomorrow.

“Brett was ill for most of the week and we felt he wasn’t ready to start the game.

“But the fact we have got those kind of choices is a good thing.”
