REDDITCH United boss Paul Smith has issued a rallying cry for the club's supporters to turn out in force this Saturday when they face top of the table and title favourites Kettering

Town at the Valley Stadium.

Kettering can count on a huge army of travelling support and Smith said: "We don't want to be in a situation where we're outnumbered by the visiting side.

We need all the support we can get!

Reds clinched a 4-4 draw at Kettering earlier in the season with Smith insisting: " We go into this game with nothing to fear. On our day, we can more than match them. If we can produce a similar performance as we did against Halesowen and Alvechurch, then we can definitely get something out of this game".

Reds were left sidelined last Saturday when their proposed Evo Stik Southern League Central Premier contest at Banbury United was called off owing to three inches of snow on the pitch.

Smith admitted: "It wasn't a good week as we were unable to train on the pitch owing the fact there was a football camp on their during Saturday morning while our Reserve side had a match in the afternoon.

"As a result, I've arranger a friendly fixture with Midland League side Walsall Wood in order to give the players a good 'blow-out'.

Smith is confident Adam Whitehouse will feature in the friendly after recovering from a hamstring injury and that should put him in the frame to face Kettering

Smith has been forced to rule out both Lewis Clarke and Jack Storer but expects new recruit Michael McGrath to make his debut in midfield.
