Wilson Carvalho, seen scoring for the Poppies against King's Lynn Town in August 2016, could be on his way back to Latimer Park

Rumours circulated at the weekend that the Poppies could be about to make a move for Carvalho, who featured for the club under Law during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons before he joined Oxford City.

And Law admitted Carvalho is a potential new arrival for the Poppies’ run-in as they look to secure a play-off place in the Evo-Stik South League Premier.

“It’s one we are looking at, it’s a possibility,” the Kettering boss said.

“There are a few technicalities that we need to look at before we can do anything.

“But we are certainly trying. I wouldn’t like to say yes just yet, but I also wouldn’t say no either.”

The Poppies have added some cover in the goalkeeping department with veteran stopper Paul Bastock signing for the club on a dual registration from Wisbech Town.

And Law is pleased he has an experienced head to call upon should anything happen to first-choice goalkeeper Paul White.

“We were talking about it a couple of weeks ago and having a look at what areas we needed some cover for going into the final stages of the season,” he added.

“We have got some young goalkeepers on the books but the question would be weather it would be right to throw them into a pressurised situation should anything happen to Paul White.

“We needed a wiser head and through our good relationship with the people at Wisbech, we have been able to get Paul on a dual registration, which gives us that cover should anything happen.

“He has all the experience and I am sure he will be in and around things for us in the run-in.”

The Poppies are due to be back in action tomorrow (Tuesday) night when they take on Royston Town at Latimer Park.
