Linnets win "UGLY"

October 24, 2017

King's Lynn Town 2-1 Bishop Stortford


It wasn't the prettiest of displays from The Linnets but it's yet another home win and more importantly another three points.


Grant Holt was handed his first start replacing Tom Siddons in the only change to the starting lineup from Lynn's last game at Dunstable a week ago. 


And it couldn't of been a better start for Holt, As with only 10 minutes on the clock the big striker opened his King's Lynn Town account, Nodding home at the back post following Cameron Normans cross from the right hand side.


And in true Linnets fashion one goal brought two on 17 minutes, A superb driving run from Craig Parker ended with Parker unselfishly playing the ball to Ryan Hawkins who slipped in the process but still managed to stab the ball home from close range. 


It was nearly 3 for Lynn when Hawkins went on one of his mesmerising runs and squared for Michael Gash who turned the ball home only to be denied by the referees assistant who had his flag up for offside.


With the home side looking deadly every time they attacked it was at the back where they looked shakey.


And right on cue the home side where punished for a mistake at the back, Sam Gaughran being the guilty party, His sloppy pass was pounced on by Freddy Moncur who coolly rounded Alex Street and despite the best efforts of the retreating Gaughran slotted into the unguarded net. 


After the break it was more cautious approach from both sides, Lynn should of extended their lead just moments into the second period, Holt turning provider for Hawkins who could only fire over the bar when well placed inside the box. 


Alex Street was called upon late into the second period saving well with his legs to deny Jason Williams and Stortford a share of the spoils. 


Linnets midfield Ryan Jarvis spoke after the  game and had this to say. 


"It was a scrappy game, I don't think we made the right decisions and we try to play football in the wrong areas of the pitch, But the main thing is we've won the game and got three points. 


"If we wanna be up their at the end of the season we aren't going to play well every game but if we can win when we're not playing well and to our standards they that's a good sign.


"Since the start of the season we've set the standard to play fast flowing football but some of the pitches doesn't allow that, you get a few bobbles here and there but it's a good sign when we can mix it and win and  tonight we did just that.
