Thomas Baillie believes the Southern League Division One Central table hasn’t “settled down” yet.

Kettering Town maintained top spot as they bounced back from their FA Cup exit at the hands of Chalfont St Peter with a 2-1 success at Beaconsfield SYCOB on Saturday thanks to goals from Dubi Ogbonna and Alfie Taylor.

The Poppies make the short trip to struggling Bedford Town tomorrow (Tuesday) night with a two-point lead from Royston Town at the top.

Joint-manager Baillie was pleased with the way his team grinded out a much-needed three points at the weekend.

But he insists there can be no let up from his players tomorrow evening.

“It’s was a long week for the staff and the players and we just needed a win,” Baillie said.

“We have been criticised for not grinding out victories but that’s what we did this time and I am just happy that we have managed to get the win.

“We are top of the league and a couple of points clear. I still don’t think the division has settled down yet and if we are in the same position when it does then we will be very happy.

“We have another tough game at Bedford on Tuesday and they have had some decent results at times, we certainly won’t take anyone lightly.”
