Cooper calls for more of the same

Mark Cooper
Cooper is targeting progress for Kettering in the FA Trophy

Kettering boss Mark Cooper has called for plenty of passion and commitment as his side targets a place in the second round of the FA Trophy.

The Poppies travel to Cambridge City on Saturday following their impressive midweek FA Cup win over Notts County.

"I knew they would be up for it on Wednesday night because it was the Cup and it was on television," Cooper told BBC Radio Northampton.

"It will be a different test to raise their game with not many people there."

Cooper has seen Kettering slide down the Blue Square Premier table in recent weeks said he and wants his players to re-focus ahead of the busy Christmas and New Year period.

"We've slipped a bit of late and one or two individuals have taken their eye off the ball.

"We need to see that passion consistently, week-in and week-out."
