Josh Moreman grabbed his fourth goal in two matches as Kettering Town secured a second successive pre-season victory at Rothwell Corinthians.
The frontman, who signed a contract with the Poppies this summer, followed up his hat-trick in Saturday’s 6-2 win at Oadby Town by scoring the only goal at Sergeants Lawn with 14 minutes to go.
It proved to be a low-key affair in front of a healthy crowd of 239 with the Poppies enjoying plenty of possession while the returning Jamie McAlindon, in the Kettering goal, enjoyed a fairly quiet night.
Trialist Avelino Vieira again featured for the Poppies but Louis Hamilton, who has a hamstring injury, and incoming signing Ross Oulton were both missing.
Kettering are back in action on Saturday when they head to Southern League Premier Division side St Neots Town (3pm).
