Game On !!

ohn Ramshaw has labelled Kettering Town’s home clash with Royston Town tonight (Tuesday) as a “six-pointer” in the battle for the play-off spots in the Evo-Stik South League Premier.

The two teams meet at Latimer Park just 10 days after Royston beat the Poppies 4-3 in the reverse fixture. Since then, the Crows have continued their impressive form of late with a 4-1 success at Frome Town at the weekend

Royston are still nine points behind Kettering going into this evening’s encounter.

Head coach Ramshaw knows the picture could look either very good or slightly more tricky depending on the outcome. “Let’s not beat around the bush, Royston are a very good side and, to be honest, they probably deserved to beat us in the game down there,” he said.

“It’s a quick turnaround for the two teams and obviously we will be looking to make sure the result goes in our favour this time. “But it’s a six-pointer as far as the play-off places are concerned.

“They have got a game in hand on us which, in the form they’re in, you’d expect them to win so if they beat us then you are looking at a potential gap of just three points. That would obviously bring us right back into the mix.
