Kettering Town have said they are doing what they can to assist Egham Town as the Surrey club aim to get Saturday’s clash between the two teams on.

Egham was one of the worst hit areas during the recent floods and the Calor League Division One Central club’s pitch was heavily flooded along with their clubhouse and other facilities.

The Poppies are hoping to maintain their push for a play-off place at the weekend following back-to-back home victories and Egham stated earlier in the week that they were hopeful of the game going ahead.

A brief statement from the Poppies said: “The news from Egham is that there are still ongoing issues with the changing rooms.

“We are currently looking at ways to help, to see if the game can be staged, and are also speaking with the Calor League secretary.”

That statement was followed by Kettering chairman Ritchie Jeune sending out a message on Twitter in which he said that the game on Saturday was “no more than a 50-50”.
