Coalville in light blue shirts and white shorts kicked off in light rain attacking the Tin Hat with Kettering in red and black. Dion Kelly-Evans almost gifted Coalville with a dream start when he played a poorly weighted back pass to Paul White. Kairo Mitchell latched onto it but in taking it around the closing Paul White pushed the ball too far and out for a goal-kick. On ten minutes Kettering won their first corner of the game but the ball was cleared away by Coalville. Kettering’s first real chance came three minutes later when a ball along the ground was played forward for Aaron O’Connor to run onto. His first touch was not the best but Richard Walton was out fast to collect well at the forward’s feet. 

Just on the quarter hour good work from Lindon Meikle set up Dan Holman with a shooting opportunity but his shot from the edge of the penalty area curled the wrong way and passed just wide of the post with the keeper beaten. Three minutes later the referee had words with Alex Dean after he tripped Marcus Kelly who had just dispossessed him. Judging from the profusion of yellow cards issued later in the game Dean could count himself lucky he didn’t become the first name in the book.  Kettering were awarded another free-kick half way inside Coalville’s half and Kelly played a lofted ball into the box where it was met by Holman. His looping header was athletically tipped over by Walton for an unproductive corner. 

Shortly a free kick awarded after a Richens foul on Andrew Wright was quickly taken, something that Coalville would do all night, but would prevent Kettering from doing by standing a man over the ball with no action from the referee. The quick kick was cut out by the attentive White before Mitchell could make Kettering pay. Just before the half hour Coalville were in front. Former Poppy Kalern Thomas made a penetrating run down the left getting past the out-numbered DKE. Declan Towers closed him down but rather than standing his ground rashly attempted to close with the played and brought down Thomas for a clear penalty. It was a very similar scenario to the St Ives match where a team seemingly content with a 0-0 draw were given an opportunity to take the lead. Kairo Mitchell took a text-book penalty and even though Paul White went the right way the kick was so precisely placed he stood no chance.  0-1 Coalville 29 mins.

It could have been worse five minutes later when Craig Stanley misdirected a header from a long clearance by Coalville. The ball fell straight to Kyle Perry who hit a first time shot which went over. With ten minutes to go Dan Holman picked up the first caution of the game for a trip on Luke Shaw just inside Kettering’s half. Holman redeemed himself minutes later. A high ball was played into the box from Kettering’s right. Dan challenged for the ball leaving Walton the only option of punching the ball clear. It only went as far as Michael Richens just outside the penalty area. He composed himself and fired in a fierce shot which hit the underside of the bar and bounced back into play. Holman tussled with a defender to get to an awkward thigh high ball and prevailed to force it into the net. 1-1 Kettering 38 mins. Walton complained vehemently that Holman had handled the ball in the act of controlling it and was booked for dissent for his trouble. 

Walton’s next action in the game was putting the ball behind for a corner after slicing an attempted clearance. In the two added minutes before halftime Dan Holman escaped a second card after kicking the ball away after being penalised for off-side. It was quite ironic for a Kettering player to be accused of wasting time after the whole of the Coalville team had spent forty-five minutes slowing down the game as much as possible.

Half Time: Kettering Town 1  Coalville Town 1

Coalville’s manager’s half time talk appeared to have inspired his team as they started the second half showing more confidence believing that they could get more out of the game than a point.  Mitchell had their first chance after five minutes when he received the ball in the area with his back to the goal. He made a good turn but his weak shot was straight at White. Coalville followed this up with a corner after DKE had to defend well to prevent a better chance being created. Paul White firmly punched away the resulting corner, no doubt aware of the aerial threat of Perry from the first meeting. 

Kettering’s first chance of the second period came after fifty-six minutes when Kelly made a good break down the left. His dangerous cross was cleared by Thomas but straight to Holman who’s first time shot went well over the bar. Six minutes later Coalville won a free-kick in a dangerous position but was poorly taken by Wright as he put it straight out for a free-kick. Two minutes later Kettering took advantage of the spurned opportunity. A long ball out of defence was misjudged by a Coalville defender. AO'C latched onto the loose ball and advanced towards goal. The goalie came out to the edge of the area to narrow the angle but Aaron played the ball wide of him. Walton had done enough though and the shot squarely hit the post and bounced back into play. Marcus was following up though and side footed the rebound into an empty net. 2-1 Kettering 64 mins.

For the first time in the game Coalville started showing some urgency. They made their first substitution with Luke Shaw being replaced by Curtis Burrows.  With twenty minutes White failed to cleanly collect a shot by Wright but Towers was on hand to hack the ball clear before Mitchell could punish the mistake. Kettering were doing their best now to run down the clock and Paul White was making the most of dealing with through balls. On fielding one such ball he was caught late by the oncoming Kyle Perry, who got a talking to by the referee. This might have influenced the referee's thinking when at a subsequent corner Paul White spilled the ball and was adjudged to have been fouled by Perry who was booked. Just before that Coalville made a second substitution with Tim Berridge replacing Alex Dean. Kettering were sitting back now and defending deeper and deeper encouraging Coalville to attack which they  did slowly increasing the pressure with successive corners. Kettering reduced their attacking threat by replacing Hoenes with Lathaniel Rowe-Turner on seventy-seven minutes. 

With ten minutes left Kettering paid the price for conceding so much territory to the visitors. The ball was played across the face of Kettering’s area from the left and substitute Tim Berridge found himself in space and planted an accurate low shot just inside White's left-hand post. 2-2 Coalville 80 mins.

Coalville went back into containment mode and Kettering were able to create chances up the other end. AO'C had a couple of chances but Walton made one routine save and another more difficult one. With five minutes to go Solkhon was brought on for Meikle. With four additional minutes to be played Kettering ha one final chance but AO'C's shot was blocked and Kelly and Solkhon managed to get in each others way to cause the chance to be lost. In the final minute the ball was played into Kettering’s box the ball was cleared out on the left and a Coalville player collected the ball with his back to the goal just in from the touch-line. LRT followed him and made an unnecessary tackle and gave away a free-kick. The ball was floated into the box by Andrew Wright and danger man Kyle Perry got his head to the ball an powered it past White. 2-3 Coalville 93 mins.

There was very little time left and moments later the final whistle blew to consign Kettering to their fourth home defeat of the season.
