Linnets face Barwell test at Kirby Road

November 16, 2018

The Linnets are back on the road on Saturday with a trip to Leicestershire to tackle mid-table Barwell. 
Town will travel in good heart following two successive wins and defend an unbeaten league run that stretches back to early September. 
Lynn haven’t had too much to shout about following recent trips to Kirkby Road suffering defeats in both league and cup competitions - something that manager Ian Culverhouse is keen to address on Saturday.
Culverhouse said: "People tell me it’s not a happy hunting ground but that’s all history now though and it’s all about ourselves at the weekend. 
"We will be going there believing that we can achieve a result – just as we do going into every game we are involved in. 
"Having a clear week has allowed Bazza (Paul Bastock) and myself some good time with the lads on the training pitch and I have to say that they have trained and applied themselves very well. 
"Having Rory (McAuley) back following his suspension gives us another option and we've also brought back Matty Castellan who has been out on loan at Lowestoft to add some numbers to the squad. 
"It’s a small group so they have to be managed carefully and sensibly but it is what it is and we work with what we have. 
"There is a tremendous spirit and togetherness within the squad which will stand us in a good place going forward."
Barwell have just the one home win in the league to date from seven games.
However it’s worth pointing out that five of those games have been against top six sides of the Southern Premier Central Division. 
Leaders Kettering Town scraped a single-goal victory whilst Stourbridge were held in a 1-1 draw. 
Their interest in the FA Trophy continues following a 1-0 success at St Neots Town last Saturday.
Lynn Reserves will be hoping that home comforts will make a difference on Saturday as they entertain Haverhill Borough in the Thurlow Nunn League. 
Last weekend they were soundly beaten 6-0 at Norwich CBS and will be looking for a change of fortunes at the weekend.
