FAC: Notts County 1-1 Kettering

BY foxsports • November 30, 2008

Kettering gave themselves the chance to cause another FA Cup upset after holding League Two side Notts County to a 1-1 draw at Meadow Lane.

The Blue Square Premier side were never overawed by the challenge and Iyseden Christie had already wasted a good chance when they went in front after 19 minutes.

Tricky winner Alfie Potter created the opening as he slid the ball through to Brett Solkhon and although goalkeeper Russell Hoult took the sting out of his shot, the ball trickled over the line.

County equalised after 35 minutes with a well worked move as substitute Jay Smith fed the ball into Jamie Forrester, who controlled it with his back to goal and set up the chance for Sean Canham.

Kettering finished the half strongly as Stephen Hunt cleared off the line from Guy Branston and Christie headed just wide, and they continued to create the better openings after the break.

John Thompson rescued County with a goal line clearance from Craig Westcarr but County might have won it after 67 minutes when Lee Harper blocked a shot from Delroy Facey and Canham blasted the rebound over the top.
