Kettering need to produce the goods in a real crunch match this weekend.
Having given Spalding their first win of the season - at the ninth attempt - last time out, the Blues tomorrow take on another of Midlands One East’s strugglers Peterborough.
Just a couple of points separate the sides at the moment. A win for Kettering would move them closer to the mid-table sides, defeat would drop them back into the bottom three.
Ryan Conyard returns at scrum-half in place of Toby Horrigan - who drops back to the seconds - and he will be partnered at half-back by Andy Byrne who returns to the position he played for most of last season.
Kettering from: Pell, Ling, Cox, Bishop, Chapman, Scarr, Williamson, Keir, Conyard, Byrne, Cox, Newman, Neild, Renard, Daniel, Fraher, Wilson, Taylor.
