Marcus Law wants his Kettering Town players to continue to make themselves “difficult to beat” as they face up to two away matches this week.
The Poppies are unbeaten in four Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division matches following Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Cambridge City, a match which also brought with it a third clean sheet in a row.
They head to struggling to Cirencester Town tonight (Tuesday) bidding to extend that run as they look to stay in touch with the teams currently in the play-off places.
This evening’s clash is followed by another trip at the weekend when Law’s men make the short journey to St Neots Town.
And the Poppies boss said: “We have got a tough week in front of us.
“The league is still tight and the margins are small. We have to make sure we get our own court in order.
“I am sure the conditions will be a bit easier tonight than they were at the weekend when I felt both teams gave their manager and their fans the best they could.
“We are away from home for a couple of games and we must make sure we stay difficult to beat.
“If we do that then we feel we have enough quality to take the chances that will be provided.
“We just have to try to keep the good run we have got ourselves on going.”
The Poppies have no new injury concerns coming out of the weekend and will have Liam Canavan available again after he served a one-match ban on Saturday.
Tonight’s match at the Corinium Stadium will be free entry for all supporters.
Cirencester are aiming to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support with fans being encouraged to make a donation after entering the stadium.
