i would'nt be surprised if kettering gave us a realy hard match and then beat us, but i think fulham will edge the game by a goal or two

Number 4 is actually two facts so pat yourself on the back. 14 facts, not 13.

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.
