Linnets look to extend fine home form.

October 23, 2017

King’s Lynn Town are back in action on Tuesday evening when Bishop’s Stortford visit The Walks for a Southern Premier division fixture ( 7:45 KO). 


Following Saturday’s call off at Gosport the Linnets have slipped to second place in the league table to Slough Town who collected a point from their visit to Kettering Town but a win on Tuesday evening could put them back to top spot if other results go their way.

Town will be looking to complete their first double of the season having won the corresponding fixture 3-2 in August thanks to goals from Craig Parker, Leon Mettam and Michael Gash but since that victory Tuesday’s visitors have picked up their form although they did go done 2 – 1 to Tiverton Town on Saturday.

Speaking to manager Ian Culverhouse spoke of his frustration at Saturday’s call off. 


"I was really disappointed with the game being off as I was keen for our momentum to continue, Thankfully we didn’t get all the way down there and then it was called because that would have been very painful. It’s a shame as well for the supporters who were well on their way down there but I suspect this won’t be the last time something like this happens as we begin to see the winter weather affecting things.


"It did though give the players a chance to rest up following Tuesday’s fixture and it gave me the chance to do some extra preparation ahead of the Bishop’s Stortford game’.

Culverhouse continued "They had a bad start but have picked up some good wins including three on the road so they will arrive with some confidence even though they were beaten at the weekend. 


"We have found ourselves in a run of games against teams who for one reason or another have struggled a bit and our in lower positions in the league than they would wish. It’s a chance for us to add further points to our tally and keep our run going. 


Grant and Simon are getting some minutes towards their match fitness which bodes well for the club as a whole. 


"Leon is nearing a return although we will not rush him back as those kind of injuries need careful management and time to ensure a complete recovery. 


"Yes we are in a good place but we have to keep focused and fully concentrated on the job in hand and keep picking up the results.
