Linnets travel to third-placed Waders

December 20, 2018

The Linnets begin a hectic Christmas spell of four games in ten days on Saturday with a difficult looking trip to Langford Road, home of Biggleswade Town for a Southern Premier Central Division fixture. 
Lynn extended their unbeaten run to 12 games last weekend with a 3-0 home triumph over Rushall Olympic and manager Ian Culverhouse is keen on continuing the momentum at the league’s third-placed team.
"I was extremely pleased at our response and performance last weekend," said Culverhouse. ‘
"We needed that win and it has put us into a position where we are handily placed to have a real good go at the teams above us and if we continue picking up the points we can hope to move above them. 
"Biggleswade are one of those teams, so it’s important on Saturday that we go about our business just the way we did last weekend. The league table never lies and its obvious they are having a very good season to date. 
"They are also still involved in the FA Trophy which suggests a team with a lot of confidence and rightly so – good results and performances create that kind of feeling. 
"They came and won at our place on the opening day of the season which isn’t an easy thing to do but that didn’t happen on my watch so I cannot really say where things went wrong that day. 
"I noticed they slipped up at Lowestoft Town in midweek, so just like Rushall the previous weekend we will face a team following a defeat and they will be no doubt be looking for the win.
"From our point of view we must be sharp and honest and at it from the start. They are a good side and will need no encouragement."
The Waders have suffered defeat at home only once this season against league leaders Stourbridge. 
Other play-off-placed teams such as Alvechurch and AFC Rushden & Diamonds have also tasted defeat at Langford Road.
Lynn’s main injury concern continues to be full-back Aaron Jones.
Meanwhile, on Saturday the Reserves have a Norfolk derby with Diss Town at The Walks (3pm) with Neil Fryatt’s team looking for  points to move them up the Thurlow Nunn Division One North table.
