King’s Lynn Town Reserves travel to Swaffham for a Thurlow Nunn First Division North derby on Friday night.
After suffering three successive defeats, Reserves boss Adam Seal believes there would be no better game for his side to return to winning ways.
Seal said: “We’re really looking forward to it. We’ve been a little bit unfortunate in our first few games as we have missed chances and have been punished for any little mistake.
“People will be looking at our results and thinking that we have been battered, but that hasn’t been the case.
“Swaffham are a big, physical side who will be right at us. Some of our younger players will have to step up.
“They will be well-drilled and well-organised and when you look at Swaffham’s front four or five players, they are probably the best attackers in this league on their day.”
Seal is well aware that his players will have to be ready for the battle at Shoemakers Lane.
“I’d say that we’re the underdogs,” said Seal.
“We will need to match them in every department. The players did it at March, for 60 or 70 minutes at Diss and for 45 minutes against Ipswich Wanderers.
“Our youngsters have got the ideal opportunity to make a name for themselves.
“Last reason we rolled over far too easily and we can’t let the same thing happen again.”
On Tuesday night, King's Lynn Town under-18s maintained their 100 per cent start to the new season with a 12-1 victory at Wisbech St Mary.
On target in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League Western Division clash were: Kieron Wingfield (8), Ben Welch (2), Charlie Rudland and Emre Upston.
Lynn's young-guns have now found the back of the net 25 times in their opening three fixtures.
