Linnets draw blank at home

August 26, 2017

King's Lynn Town 0-0 Frome Town


The Linnets where unable to break down a stubborn Frome side to draw blank for the first time this season.


Manager Ian Culverhouse was able to name an unchanged side following last Saturday's victory against Dorchester. Defender Ryan Fryatt managed to shake of the ankle injury that saw him withdrawn at the half time interval against The Magpies. 


Michael Gash was again ruled out with a knee injury.


Skipper Michael Clunan had the opening Linnets chance firing straight at Kyle Phillips from 20 yards. 


A driving run and shot from full back Cameron Norman had the next Lynn chance as he fired straight at Phillips from an angle inside the box. 


Leon Mettam then had a good chance when he was sent clear by strike partner Tom Siddons but Mettam could only drag his effort across the face of goal. 


It was Mettam again who had the next chance just before the half time break, Heading wide when well placed inside the area from a Michael Clunan free kick from the right. 


The Linnets continued with the pressure minutes into the second half when a pin point pass from Frazer Blake-Tracy found Mettam who's chest and volley effort was superbly kept out by Phillips with his legs.


Meanwhile up the other end Frome created their only chance, A free-kick was put into the area and Chas Hemmings header was sent goalwards but fortunately for Lynn fans cannoned of the base of the post and was cleared to safety.


Lynn huffed and puffed as they searched for the winner, Norman smashed into the side netting when played in by Clunan with most home fans thinking the ball had actually gone in. 


Substitute Craig Gillies nearly won it in the final few minutes when his turn and shot went narrowly over the bar. 


It wasn't to be for the boys in blue and gold and they had to settle for a share of the spoils.
