Kettering Town 1 Arlesey Town 3

Arlesey Town ended a run of three league games without a win, as they eased to a 3-1 triumph at rock bottom Kettering Town on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues got off to the perfect start as Chris Marsh netted on four minutes, before Drew Roberts converted a 36th minute penalty after Chris Dillon was fouled in the box.

Roberts struck again on the stroke of half time, before the hosts pulled one back on 65 minutes when Henry Eze found the net.

The result saw Arlesey remain in mid-table and are eight points off the play-offs with two games in hand on fifth placed Cambridge City.

Arlesey travel to AFC Totton on Tuesday night.

Arlesey: Abbey, Mawer, Cook, Gordon, Frater, Farrell, Hatch, Marsh, Dillon, Roberts, Hibbert.

Subs: Blackett, Prosper, Goss, Z Abbey, Bussey.
