It’s Thursday evening football at The Walks this week as Kettering Town visit in a rearranged Southern Premier division fixture (7:45 KO). With it looking increasingly likely that Hereford will be crowned champions shortly attention is turning to the play offs where Lynn, Kettering , Weymouth and Slough Town are all jostling for positions to gain home advantage in the semi-finals and final.
Town earned a point at the weekend in a 0-0 home draw with Merthyr Town and with all of their other rivals winning their games just seven points now separate the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed sides with Kettering sitting 4th with 85 points and three games in hand on Lynn who have 92 points from 42 games played.
Speaking ahead of Thursday evening manager Ian Culverhouse told www.kltown.co.uk
“It’s a big game that everyone at the club is looking forward too, It’s a meeting of two sides who are in good form and on unbeaten runs so something has to give on the evening.
“We were a touch off colour at the weekend but we had a very positive session on Monday evening, chatted about a few things and we will be ready for what will be a big challenge to us, I have no major issues with any injuries and all of the squad should be available to me.
“ I was disappointed in our defeat their on New Year’s Day because I felt we did more than enough on the day to at least get a point. As I have said before though the league table doesn’t lie and they are where they are because they have had, like us, a very good season to date.
“Like ourselves though they will end up where they deserve to end up and for me it’s all about us and this great set of lads who have given their all for me this season. They have been magnificent on the pitch and in training in fact they have represented this club superbly throughout.
“I cannot fault them but at present the hard truth is that we have achieved nothing and we have to continue believing in what we do and in believing in our ability. I have said all along we fear no-one and that is still the case now’.
“This is the time for the people of King’s Lynn to come and get behind us, a few of the older faces round the club talk about the old days when there would be 1500-2000 screaming fans on the terraces, Lets have one of them nights and give the boys a little bit extra to spur them on”.
Gates open on Thursday evening at 5:30pm to incorporate a “Happy Hour” in the clubroom with special offers on various beverages.
Meanwhile on Wednesday evening the reserves travel to their counterparts at Norwich United in the Thurlow Nunn league, Division 1 ( 7:45 KO).
