King's Lynn Town travel to fierce rivals Kettering Town on Tuesday evening (7.45pm) looking to put their disappointing weekend result firmly behind them.
Town came from behind to take a 2-1 lead on Saturday. However three goals in the final 20 minutes from visitors Biggleswade Town saw Lynn end up on the wrong side of a 4-2 defeat.
Before a ball had been kicked in anger this season, both the Linnets and Poppies were being touted for promotion following their exploits of last season which of course saw Lynn lose the Southern premier play-off final to Slough Town – the team who ended Kettering’s promotion hopes at the semi final stage.
The games between the two sides were evenly-matched last term with both teams securing wins on their own soil and another close encounter appears to be on the cards at Latimer Road on Tuesday evening.
The match sees summer signing Kalern Thomas take on his former club for the Linnets.
Kettering got their campaign underway on Saturday with a single-goal victory at Hitchin Town, where Rhys Hoenes was on target.
Boss Marcus Law has made several summer signings but he is also having to cope at present with injury doubts to key squad players ahead of Tuesday’s Linnets clash.
No longer with Kettering are strikers Rene Howe, now with Hendon and Mathew Stevens - returning to Peterborough after last season's loan.
Town boss Simon Clark has no fresh injury concerns and it remains to be seen if he will change his starting side or give them another chance following Saturday’s defeat.
