The Linnets travel to Hitchin Town on Saturday for their latest Southern Premier division fixture, Town still sit second in the table following last Saturday’s draw with Weymouth when they were denied victory by a late visiting equaliser.
The host’s currently occupy eleventh spot and, like many of Lynn’s recent opponents, have a good home record – ensuring another difficult afternoon on the road for boss Ian Culverhouse and his side.
“It’s another extremely difficult away task for us admitted Culverhouse speaking to www.kltown.co.uk ahead of the weekend. ‘ It will be a tough, physical game for sure if it’s anything like when they came to our place earlier in the season. We worked very hard that evening for the 2-0 win and we will need more of the same on Saturday if we are to get something from the game.
“We put in a good shift at Frome two weeks back and secured a valuable point and I expect and in fact demand another performance of similar standards at Hitchin. You have to be at it for every game, week in, week out in this league.
“Many of the teams are very competitive and have it in their locker to churn out a surprise result every now and then. Weymouth got caught with their trousers down on Tuesday ( a 2-1 defeat at Dunstable) and there will be more surprises between now and April.
“I want to make sure we are not amongst many of them and to be doing that I will not be looking any further ahead than the next game.
“Next Tuesday evening will look after itself and I think a few people – not the players I hasten to add - have lost sight that we have an important job to do this weekend, Once that is done we move onto another challenge. It’s the ethic I have and always will use at the club’.
The reserves have an away trip to Norwich United Reserves in the Thurlow Nunn Division one (3pm) meaning there is no fixture on The Walks this weekend.
