Culverhouse returns to Walks dugout for St Ives clash

November 9, 2018

The Linnets entertain near rivals St Ives Town on Saturday in a rearranged Southern Premier Central Division fixture.
Fans will get their first glimpse of manager Ian Culverhouse back in the home dugout following his return to the club last week.
Culverhouse oversaw last weekend’s Alvechurch victory and Tuesday evening’s CSS League cup defeat when Town fielded a much-changed line-up at Kettering and admitted he cannot wait to get started with the weekend’s fixture.
"I’m really looking forward to it," said Culverhouse.
"To have a good crowd behind you in a home fixture can sometimes be almost worth a goal start and I would urge and encourage all of our supporters to get behind us from the first whistle on Saturday and stick behind the lads for the full 90 minutes. 
"I know and the players know that we must improve our home form if we want move up the table and put ourselves into a more healthier position. 
"Draws have to be turned into wins as the difference between one and three points is huge in the final reckoning. 
"The squad, although small, is packed with quality and some very gifted players. 
"As a team we have to give something positive to our supporters to get them pumped up and fully involved so a quick, front foot start is what I will be looking for from the lads. 
"There is still a shed load of points on offer and anything can and will happen over the next few months. 
"We have a few injury concerns but I will give everyone as long as possible to see how they are. 
"We will be missing Rory (McAuley) through suspension and there is a big doubt over Ryan Fryatt so we could be light at the back so we will go with what we have."
A win for the 12th-placed Linnets would move them into the top half of the table for the first time this season with teams being involved in the FA Trophy and others inactive. 
The visiting Saints arrive at The Walks currently in 18th spot following a 2-0 home defeat to Stratford Town last weekend.
Prior to kick-off on Saturday there will be a minute's silence ahead of remembrance Sunday.
The Linnets will wear shirts which will sport a stick on poppy which have been kindly donated by the Friends of the Linnets group. 
There will also be the presentation of the Friends of the Linnets October player of the month ahead of the game.
The reserves have a league fixture at Norwich CBS (3pm).
