Nicky Eaden knows the pressure is on him to turn Kettering Town’s fortunes around.

The Poppies’ poor start to the Vanarama National League North season continued last night (Tuesday) as two second-half goals saw them beaten 2-0 by Boston United – a third home defeat in a row.

Kettering haven’t won since beating AFC Telford United 2-1 on the opening day of the season and, despite the campaign being just nine games old, boss Eaden is already coming under fire from the club’s fanbase.

Eaden looks set to ring the changes within the squad as he revealed experienced striker Aaron O’Connor has been told he can leave the club while midfielder Michael Richens has also been left out of the squad for the past two matches.

The Poppies manager is keen to add some fresh faces to his struggling squad but he knows time is of the essence as a clash at Farsley Celtic approaches at the weekend.

“You are always under pressure in every game,” Eaden said.

“The owner (Ritchie Jeune) has been really good, he knows what I came into and what I have got to work with.

“But I am not different to anyone else. If you keep losing games, eventually you will go.”
