Match preview

By Lewis Glennon

This Saturday Alvechurch face Kettering Town for their first ever league match against each other. Here is everything you need to know about the game.

How have both teams been playing?

Last week's 4-1 home defeat to Corby Town in the FA Cup means Alvechurch come into this game needing a win. Despite the defeat ending their seven game unbeaten run; they are winless in three games following that defeat and two draws against Stourbridge and Hitchin Town. To add to this, their JW Hunt game against Bilston Town on Wednesday was postponed meaning that they had to wait a little longer to forget last week's result. However, Ian Long's side have made Lye Meadow a bit of a fortress not losing or conceding their this season, and scoring six of their eight league goals at home. To add to this, their last loss before Corby sparked their recent unbeaten run, so don't be surprised if Church turn it around.

Kettering meanwhile, come into the game top of the table after six wins from the opening seven games. Despite this however, last weeks win over AFC Mansfield in the FA Cup halted a little mini slump where they lost to Cogenhoe United, in the Northants Senior Cup, and Leiston in the league. However, as the leagues second top goalscorers this season, with 15 goals, their attack could cause problems for Alvechurch's back-line; especially Marcus Kelly and Rhys Hoenes who both have four goals this season.

What time is kick-off?
