Linnets return to league action with Halesowen trip

September 13, 2018

Midfielder Craig Parker believes Lynn's morale-boosting FA Cup victory at Histon can kick-start the club's league form.
The Linnets head to Halesowen on Saturday with just four points from their opening six fixtures.
But Parker hopes Lynn can build on their sensational seven-goal showing when they travel to the West Midlands.
"We've got to take Tuesday's result and performance into Saturday's league game," admitted Parker.
"We know we haven't done ourselves justice this season and the league is our bread and butter.
"The important thing is that we need to get some points on the board and start churning out a few wins.
"Football is all about momentum and confidence and hopefully the cup result can kick-start our season."
Parker, who opened his goal account for the season during the 7-0 win, added: "It was really important that everyone pulled together to get a result at Histon.
"Once the first goal went in, you could see the confidence grow throughout the team.
"We always knew that we had been under-performing and as players we have to take our fair share of the responsibility.
"But it hasn't been through the want of trying and everything just clicked into place against Histon."
Halesowen remain unbeaten at home and, like Lynn, have a home tie to look forward to in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup with Gainsborough Trinity the visitors to the Grove on Saturday week.
The Linnets, who will train this evening, have injury concerns over a number of players going into the match.
Defender Frazer Blake-Tracy did not appear after the break in Cambridgeshire because of a tight groin.
Hat-trick hero Ryan Hawkins picked up a dead leg at the start of the second half while Ryan Jarvis had to go off with a cut to his shin that needed stitches.
The interim management team of Neil Fryatt and Robbie Back will again take charge of team affairs for the Southern Central Premier Division clash.
Back said: "We need to start climbing up that league table and if we put in a performance like that, with that effort, we’ll hopefully came away from Halesowen with something.
“We just need to go there and get a result, start like we did on Tuesday night – it’s just confidence. 
"These are very, very good players. The performances they’ve been putting in, they know they have not been good enough.
“The other night, yes we weren’t playing a step three team and fair play to Histon, I just thought we were on another level.
“It just goes to show with a bit of hard work and a bit of confidence you can put in a performance like that, we are a good football side.
“That’s nothing to do with me and Neil, it’s those players.”
On Wednesday night, a busy Fryatt and Dan Buhlemann watched the under-18s come from two goals down against their counterparts from Downham to record a 6-2 win to maintain their unbeaten start to the new season.
