The newly formed club has shipped 18 goals in 6 games but Dermot Lennon reckons Kerry are improving.
Kerry will take the scalp of a bigger side soon according to Athlone Town manager Dermot Lennon.
The midlanders emerged from Mounthawk Park last Friday with three points thanks to late goal by Valeriy Dolya.
The inclement conditions didn't help Athlone but the newly-formed Kerry club have held their own in a number of games this season.
Lennon says it was a stressful 90 minutes in the Kingdom:
Athlone's next game is against league leaders Galway United on Friday in Athlone Town Stadium.
