Linnets ready for tough away day

November 17, 2017

The Linnets hit the road on Saturday with a visit to Basingstoke Town in the Southern Premier Division (The Camrose, 3pm).


Town head south in good spirit as goals from Michael Gash, Ryan Hawkins (2) and a Michael Clunan penalty saw them brush aside Royston Town on Tuesday evening. 


Speaking to ahead of Saturday’s encounter boss Ian Culverhouse said he will be looking for more of the same on Saturday.


“It will be another difficult game, as they all are, and again it will be all about us’ said Culverhouse, I was disappointed with our first 45 on Tuesday and I think we can count ourselves as being very fortunate that we went in at the break level as they had created the better chances and we had ridden our luck to an extent. 


“We talked about some things at the break and after Michael’s goal which he thoroughly deserved after some recent hard shifts I felt there would only be one winner. Ryan’s goals were different class and it’s something the lad has in his locker’.

“Basingstoke have a very good home record with just the one loss so it’s one of those games where you hope you are able as a team to set your stall out early and control things as early as you can. But to do that there will be battles all over the pitch that have to be won. 


“Once you have a control, like we saw on Tuesday evening, everything about the game becomes much easier. They will be confident and it’s going to be tough but that’s football. We just take every challenge as it arrives and see where we stand after that particular match’.

Town have no major injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s trip.

Closer to home it’s a busy weekend of action on The Walks with matches on both days. Saturday see’s the reserves tackle Braintree Town Reserves (3pm) in the Thurlow Nunn league division one whilst Sunday sees a Norfolk FA Women’s Cup fixture as Lynn Ladies host Norwich City Ladies ( 1:30 KO).
