4:34pm Sat 16 Oct 10: Harriers are angry again. This time Kelvin Jack comes out to punch a corner. The balls falls to Callum Gittings but the referee blows for a foul on Jack, who looked like he just collided with Chris McPhee as he went for the ball.

4:29pm Sat 16 Oct 10: It's kick-off here! Marc Williams raced onto a ball forward and is fouled by keeper Kelvin Jack. Even worse, the keeper looked as though he handled the ball outside the area.

3:01pm Sat 16 Oct 10: Unbelievably, if Harriers won today and Grimsy, Mansfield, Rushden, Gateshead and Luton drop points, they could get into the top five. It's a long shot but it's possible.

3:00pm Sat 16 Oct 10: Kettering's new manager, Marcus Law, has not tasted defeat for 64 matches during his time with Barwell and the Poppies. He's also a self-confessed fan of Harriers' own boss Steve Burr. Here's what he said about him to the Northampton Evening Telegraph. "I have got massive admiration for Steve Burr and the work he has done. It has been to the point where a lot of my ethics have come from the experiences people have had with him. "They will be very well organised, the team will have a good structure, there will be some experience and there will be some good young players who will hurt us if we don't concentrate."

3:00pm Sat 16 Oct 10: Kettering manager Marcus Law also makes two changes to his side, with Ian Roper relegated to the subs' bench and Ashley Westwood suspended. Nick McKoy comes into midfield as the enforcer (his first start) and Brett Solkhon also comes in. The Poppies will have Kelvin Jack in goal, a back four of Luke Graham (CB), John Dempster (CB), Gregg Taylor (LB) and Patrick Noubissie (RB). McKoy plays in front of the back four, with James Dance, Solkhon, Serge Makofo and Andre Boucaud ahead of him in midfield. Eight goal top scorer Jean-Paul Marna (Kettering's only fit hitman) will be a lone striker.

3:00pm Sat 16 Oct 10: Good afternoon Harriers fans and welcome to Shuttle Online's live match coverage at Rockingham Road. Steve Burr makes two changes from the side that defeated Grimsby Town 3-2. Callum Gittings is dropped to the bench and Mike Williams has not recovered from his hip injury, so Nick Wright plays on the left wing (his first league start since Hayes and Yeading), while Aaron Griffiths has his first start ever in the league for Harriers at left-back.
