King's Lynn Town back in action at Tamworth

August 16, 2018

King’s Lynn Town are back on the road this Saturday with a trip to Tamworth for their latest Southern Premier Central Division fixture (3pm). 
Manager Simon Clark has endured a tough start to life in the Walks hot seat with Town suffering defeats in both of their fixtures to date.
Lynn will be looking to redress the balance in Staffordshire at the weekend.
Clark said: "It has been a tough start. I won't run or hide from it. We've conceded six goals in two games and that's not good enough.
"It's about what we do next and sticking together, and I include the fans in that too.
"The fans love this football club so I totally understand how they are feeling and they are entitled to their opinions. I know the group in that changing room will work and we will go again at Tamworth.
"We are only two games in. We've played a play-off team from last season away from home and a Biggleswade team where we dominated the ball and created more chances."
Following Tuesday’s 2-1 reversal at Kettering, where Clark kept faith with his opening-day team selection, the Linnets boss may make changes – some forced upon him – as he searches for Lynn’s first points of the season. 
Striker Michael Gash limped out of the action early on Tuesday with a hamstring injury and is expected to miss the trip to The Lamb.
Clark may also be tempted to make some changes in other areas of his side.
Following their relegation from the Conference set-up last season, Tamworth are another team expected by many to be involved in the promotion battle this season. 
Under the guidance of the experienced Tim Harris and Mike Fowler, the Lambs gained their first point of the season on Tuesday following a 1-1 home draw with near-rivals Alvechurch. 
Kyle Finn put the home team ahead inside the opening minute of the game but were pegged back by the visitors. 
Tyrell Waite saw a penalty saved as the hosts passed over a great chance to win the game. 
Tamworth opened their season with a single-goal defeat at St Ives Town.
There is action on The Walks on Saturday afternoon when the reserves play Norwich CBS in a Thurlow Nunn Division One North fixture (3pm). 
Lynn's second string, who will be making their home bow this season, will be looking to bounce back following their defeat at Diss Town by the odd goal in five last weekend.
