Fleetwood Town are looking at the critical financial situation at fellow Blue Square Bet Premier club Kettering with some interest.

Kettering have had some well-publicised financial problems this year, and if there was some kind of financial meltdown at the club and if for any reason they didn’t see out the season, it could impact on Fleetwood, currently among the pace-setters in Blue Square Bet Premier.

They have won both their matches against the Poppies and the last thing Fleetwood would want is to see those wins expunged from the record.

Fleetwood know all about that scenario.

The demise of Farsley Celtic two seasons ago when they were in Conference North, saw their record rubbed out and the loss of the six points Fleetwood gained cost them dearly in the race for automatic promotion, Southport duly taking advantage.
