I was at the Forest Green match saturday - couldnt make it up to sheffield sorry! But i was talking with my mate who plays for the Green and he was saying Kettering are poor and there defence is weak so bring em on. Lets not worry about it we should be up for it 0-13 i reckon Brede Hangeland with 7!

I think fact 14 should be that they will be no match for the mighty whites!! They may put up a fight, but they will crumble 0-5.
