Workman like Linnets pick up points

October 18, 2017

Dunstable Town 0-4 King's Lynn Town


Linnets manager Ian Culverhouse made one change from Saturday's win against King's Langley with Ryan Fryatt introduced into the starting lineup in place of Tom Ward.


The home side started the game with a defender in goal as their regular goal keeper had turned up to the game injured from the weekend.

Stand in keeper Kieran Ogden was called upon on numerous occasions inside the opening minutes to keep the scores level.

A fine block denied Tom Siddons from close range was followed up minutes later by a full stretch save to palm away Michael Clunan's thunderous 25 yard effort.

Lynn got the opening goal on 27 minutes, A fine run into the box from Ryan Hawkins ended with a fine chip over the stranded Ogden.

The score stayed that way until the half time interval.

Lynn then doubled their lead thanks to a Michael Clunan penalty after keeper Ogden had hauled down Ryan Fryatt after the home said had failed to deal with a Clunan corner.

Grant Holt was then introduced on 55 minutes for the Linnets and his class really stood out.

The centre half pairing off Gaughran and Fryatt helped themselves to Lynn's third and fourth goals both from set pieces, Gaughran nodding home at the back post from Clunan's corner on 76 minutes before Fryatt applied a tidy headed finish from a well delivered Simon Lappin free-kick.

Sam Gaughran spoke to after Lynn's fine win at Dunstable and had this to say.

"We had to be patient we always knew we was going to score, It's good to get a win on a horrible wet Tuesday night.

"We top the table now but Ian has told the lads not to look at the league table, We are only a 1/4 of the way through the season and let's not get carried away, We go to Gosport now on Saturday who like Dunstable are struggling but we've got a job to do and we need to remain professional and all do our jobs.
