It was inevitable that King's Lynn Town would lose a match at some point, just a little surprising that it was against a Kettering side that was third from bottom in the league, had lost 3-0 at home to Kidderminster on Saturday and had managed just one point in six games.
Perhaps it was a reaction to the Poppies defeat on Saturday and the thought of facing the league leaders but the home side became the first to prevent Lynn scoring this season.
Kettering made changes to Saturday's line-up with Ben Sault, Ben Toseland and Sam Bennett coming into the side and former Derby County right back Kornell McDonald making his debut.
Lynn made one change with Tai Flemming coming in for Tyler Denton and it was his pull-back on Bennett after 41 minutes that resulted in the only goal of the game. Fleming was red carded and Paul Jones was sent the wrong way to stop Decarrey Sheriff carefully placed penalty.
An early chance had fell to the home side following an error by Adam Crowther who had let in Sheriff while Lynn's first effort of note came on 18 minutes when a corner found Josh Coulson but his flick was denied by the fingertips of Cameron Gregory.
Prior to the penalty an Aaron Jones' long thrown was flicked on by Gold Omotayo only for Jordan Ponticelli to somehow fire wide from around the penalty spot.
Ponticelli did have the ball in the net soon after but the effort was ruled offside and, for the Poppies, Sheriff's scissor kick found the side netting.

Despite being reduced to ten men, there was little evidence of it in Lynn's play, it was just that they couldn't find the net.
Michael Clunan had an effort deflected behind for a corner and Cameron Hargreaves shot wide following Ponticelli's lay-off.
Lynn had a penalty appeals of their own following what looked to be fouls on Hargreaves and then Omotayo but they fell on deaf ears.
A well-timed tackle from George Cooper denied Omotayo at the vital moment to preserve the Poppies lead and a last minute free-kick from substitute Joshua Barrett went just over.

There was some consolation in that results elsewhere kept the Linnets top of the league but now with three teams just one point behind.
