AFC Telford 3-1 Kettering

AFC Telford came from a goal behind to beat struggling Kettering.

The Poppies took an early lead when Jean-Paul Marna stormed through the midfield and drilled home.

Chris Sharp found the bottom corner to bring the hosts level at half-time and Phil Trainer bundled home from Jay Smith's free-kick to make it 2-1.

Marna went close to equalising with his long-range drive before Bristol City loanee Marlon Jackson secured the win for the Bucks with a 25-yard strike.

The game marked Mark Cooper's first game back as Kettering boss after he replaced Mark Stimson during the week.

Guarantees have not been met - Cooper

Kettering Town manager Mark Cooper told BBC Radio Northampton:

"There's only so long they can keep doing it (playing whilst not getting paid in full), to keep putting your neck on the block when you have got bills to pay and children to feed and I have sympathy for them.

"I came in with the guarantee that the investors would be in by now and the transfer embargo lifted and for one reason or another that hasn't happened.

"I have my own reputation to look after. Let's see what happens over the weekend.

"Kettering, in non-league terms, is a big club. It's gone backwards. It needs help quickly. Things need to change or there isn't going to be a club."
