Linnets set for tough trip to league leaders

March 8, 2018

After an unscheduled break following last week’s bad weather the Linnets travel to league leaders Hereford on Saturday in the Southern Premier Division. 


The Bulls have almost caught up with their league programme and currently hold a 10 point advantage over second placed Lynn having played a game less. 


Town will be looking to bounce back following a single goal defeat at Tiverton almost two weeks ago and speaking to ahead of the weekend manager Ian Culverhouse believes his side couldn’t have asked for a better fixture to get themselves back on track.

“It could be a real classic” said Culverhouse. “They are a great side and for the neutral their visit to us in January was an outstanding game played between two high quality sides which we nicked right at the end. 


“I’m not surprised by Hereford and the season they are having, They are a big club where things went wrong a few years back but they are now fighting their way back up the pyramid and I’m sure it will not be long before they are playing league football again. 


“Having said that we have our own challenges and targets more immediately and it’s important that we get something from this game, We deserved a point at Tiverton but didn’t bring it home so we now move onto this game looking for points . 


“It’s so very tight in and around us and there will be jostling and changing positions between now and the end of next month with points being gained and dropped by everyone. 


I understand we are taking a good following down there on Saturday and I would like to thank them in advance for their support on our travels this term. 


I appreciate it greatly as do the players. I’m sure it will be a cracking atmosphere with a big crowd and two quality teams going at it’.

For Lynn Leon Mettam is suspended and Cameron King remains out with injury.
