Injury concerns ahead of FA Trophy trip to Buxton

October 26, 2018

The Linnets take a break from league action at the weekend as they make their first appearance of the season in non league’s premier knockout competition the FA Trophy. 
Town make the trip to Buxton with joint manager Rob Back under no illusions as to the task facing his men on Saturday.
Back said: "This will most certainly not be an easy game for us.
"It will be a tough test but we have done our homework and we know a little bit about them. We will be a little light on numbers having let a few go out on loan but we still have a squad that is more than capable of bringing back a positive result. 
"Our away form is really good and we have been scoring plenty of goals on our travels so we travel full of confidence. 
"Their pitch (a newly-installed 4G plastic surface) will also suit us and our style of play."
Lynn have major injury concerns over both Adam Marriott and Chris Henderson ahead of the visit to Derbyshire.
"Both have been receiving treatment for knocks earlier in the week," said Back. 
"They are not bad injuries but  Adam will not play on Saturday and Chris is also unlikely to feature. The good news with Adam is that he should be alright to resume training next week."
The winners of Saturday’s first qualifying round tie will receive £3250 in prize money and a place in Monday’s draw.
If the match ends in a draw the replay will be next Wednesday evening (October 31) at The Walks, at 7.45pm.
Meanwhile on Saturday, the reserves have a home Thurlow Nunn League Division One North fixture against Felixstowe Reserves (3pm).
