History of the Kettering Town v Gateshead fixture

Gateshead face a trip to Kettering Town at Rockingham Road Ground on Tuesday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 6 out of 9 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in September 2009, as they swept to an impressive 4 - 0 win in a (Conference) Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Kettering Town's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Poppies have scored 5, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Gateshead's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Tynesiders have hit 4 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Kettering Tn. see themselves just below half way in the Blue Square (Conference) Premier, showing a record of 28 points from their 22 games played so far, Gateshead find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 26 points from their 23 matches.
