Marcus Law is hoping his Kettering Town side can make it three wins in a row when they make the long trek to Bideford this weekend.

The Poppies followed up their FA Trophy success at St Ives Town with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over 10-man Biggleswade Town at Latimer Park on Tuesday night.

Brett Solkhon, on his 400th appearance for the club, and a late own-goal sent Law’s side up to ninth in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division ahead of the trip to Devon.

And, with consistency now being the main aim, Law wants his players to make it a hat-trick of victories.

“It would be good to keep the positivity going and I would like to get three wins on the bounce,” the Poppies manager said.

“The league is waiting for a team to show a bit of consistency and continuity.

“I am really hoping we can be the ones to do that.”

The Kettering squad were travelling south today (Friday) for an overnight stay before they take on a Bideford side, who are currently languishing in the bottom four of the table.

And Law says the club’s backing to provide the funds to enable his team to travel down a day in advance could be the difference.

“Thankfully the chairman and vice-chairman have stumped up the money for us to have an overnight stay and the Supporters Trust have provided us with a cheque to give us a pre-match meal for the lads,” Law added.

“We appreciate that and hopefully, by preparing correctly, it gives us every chance to come back with three points.”
