Ian Culverhouse is looking forward to sampling a ‘special’ Boxing Day Walks atmosphere on Wednesday as the Linnets host local rivals Lowestoft Town in a Southern Premier Central Division derby (3pm).
Town got their busy festive programme off to a winning start with a hard fought 2-1 win at Biggleswade Town on Saturday and the Lynn boss is looking to continue his team’s unbeaten run in front of his team’s own supporters.
Culverhouse said: "Firstly I must send season’s greetings to all of our supporters," said Culverhouse.
"The lads and myself will enjoy Christmas Day with our families and then it will be back to football business on Wednesday.
"Football matches at this time of the year always create a great atmosphere and it would be brilliant if we can get some real noise about the place on the afternoon.
"The team are doing alright at the moment and played with their hearts on their sleeves at Biggleswade.
"It was a dig-deep mentality that was required and that is what I got – I couldn’t have been more pleased as it was a great result in difficult conditions.
"Derby games are always hard fought and keenly contested affairs and Lowestoft will be no different. They need the points for other reasons.
"I suspect some will be looking at our relevant league positions and saying home win, well I’m not one of those people.
"The game will have a little edge to it I’m sure and again the day being what it is will add a little extra.
"Just like the weekend it’s a game against a side who have beaten us earlier in the season so for me that will add even further motivation – and we already have load of that at the moment."
Defender Aaron Jones will miss the game as he requires surgery on a knee problem.
Lowestoft Town travel to The Walks occupying 19th place in the league.
They beat the Linnets in the reverse fixture by a 1-0 margin back in August and will be looking to build on their last outing against Biggleswade Town when they came from behind to record a 2-1 success.
Their scheduled home fixture with Halesowen Town on Saturday was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
