Linnets take on the Canaries as Barwell visit The Walks

January 17, 2019

Manager Ian Culverhouse is looking to his team to implement its ruthless streak when Barwell visit The Walks on Saturday (3pm). The Linnets have been collecting the full quota of points on their recent road trips but have to date shared the spoils with their Walks visitors on six occasions and Culverhouse knows the draws must be turned to wins as Town look to maintain the play-off position they currently occupy. 
"Our home win ratio is something we have to improve upon," admits the Lynn boss. 
"We need to get the game by the scruff of the neck early on, impose ourselves and convert the chances we have been creating at home. 
"I would be worried if we were not creating but we are and you get the feeling that eventually we will be putting these chances away. "Early goals at home are always important not only for the team but for our supporters as well. 
"You can sometimes feel the tension from the terraces on the bench if we haven’t got the lead in a game but football is about working hard as a unit to generate positive results and in matches you do not always get four goals inside the opening 30 minutes. "We play in a certain way and we will not be changing that. We always believe we will score goals, we have the players to score goals but we need to be focused and more clinical in front of goal sometimes."
Barwell arrive at The Walks in 17th place in the Southern Premier, Central Division table and contain former Linnets fan favourite Henry Eze amongst their number.  
Last weekend the Canaries suffered a 3-1 home reverse to Rushall Olympic – the same score the Linnets won the corresponding fixture by on their trip to Leicestershire in November.
The Linnets continue to have Aaron Jones on the sidelines following his recent knee operation. 
Both Jordan Richards and Michael Gash are responding to treatment and will be assessed on their fitness on Saturday. 
Matt Castellan has left the club by mutual consent and joined Dereham Town.
Lynn Reserves have an A47 Thurlow Nunn League Division One North derby on Saturday with a trip to Wisbech St Mary (3pm).
