Needham Market preview

December 31, 2018

King's Lynn Town conclude their busy holiday schedule on Tuesday with a trip to Needham Market (1pm kick-off). 
So far the Linnets have collected seven points from a possible nine and will be looking for one final push at the league’s sixth-placed team.
Manager Ian Culverhouse will again select from a similar squad that took a point from second placed Kettering Town at the weekend. 
Defender Aaron Jones may be involved in that squad after a surprising appearance on Saturday as the Lynn boss explained. ‘ "Aaron’s situation is that he is awaiting an operation but has been told that he can do no further damage to the knee in the meantime," said Culverhouse.
"Obviously it’s painful and swollen after games so we just have to see how he is on Tuesday. We are down to the bare bones at present with the squad so we have to go with what we have. 
"The chairman and Rob Back  director of football) are working hard to bring players in and we have had talks. However we want players here to give them a platform to express themselves and their play. 
"We will not be paying silly money out to bring people here – simply we cannot and will not do it." 
Culverhouse also shed light behind striker Harry Limb linking with Pinchbeck United on a month’s loan. 
"Harry needs the minutes – and plenty of them," admitted Culverhouse. 
"It is something we have been looking to do for a while because the boy needs to be playing. 
"Unfortunately after we had concluded the deal it came to light that Charlie Clarke has a thigh pull and therefore is unavailable for selection at this point. Had we have known the situation it’s obvious that Harry would have stayed with us. 
"We can cover that position with either Hawks (Ryan Hawkins) or Chris (Henderson) so we will get on with it. It will be tough on Tuesday as Needham are another good side. It will be about us as always and we will be ready for that challenge. 
"It’s going to be a heck of a battle between Stourbridge and Kettering but all I’m interested is us gaining points and maintaining our form. If we do that then we will be fine."
