Reserved: Cooper explained that the second round will be another tough challenge.
Jubilant Kettering Town believe that they have sent out a message to their second round opponents.

The Blue Square Premier side are set to face Notts County at Meadow Lane at the end of the month, following their 2-1 scalp of Lincoln City last night.

Poppies' boss, Mark Cooper believed that they deserved the victory and signalled that his team wish to inflict a similar upset on the Magpies.

"We were branded as a long ball team and a bunch of bruisers, but I think we looked anything but that," he said, speaking exclusively to NCM.

"We were aggressive, we've got a fantastic will to win and I thought we were a credit to the Blue Square Premier.

"I'm not going to say that we're going to go and beat Notts County because I believe they went to Barnet and won 4-0 on Saturday.

"We'll go and give a good account of ourselves like we've done today.

"It will be a big ask to go to a club like Notts County and get anything, but that will give them all the confidence in the world to finish in a high position in the Conference."

Match winner, Iyseden Christie was delighted to have grabbed the injury time winner and expressed his confidence of extending Kettering's cup run past the Notts clash.

He declared: "They'll be a bit worried now.

"I think there's every chance that we can go there and get a positive result."

The match has been scheduled for a 1pm kick-off on Sunday, November 30.
