King's Lynn Town boss Ian Culverhouse wants his players to show a more ruthless streak when they host Royston Town in a Southern League Central Premier Division fixture on Tuesday night (7.45pm).
The Linnets manager was delighted with how his players responded from the midweek defeat at Hitchin Town, but still felt his team lacked a cutting edge in the final third.
Culverhouse said: "We didn't have the sharpness around the 18-yard box at St Ives.
"We tried to be too precise with our finishing at times and we need to do a little bit better.
"From box to box we were really good, we just lacked that little bit of quality when we needed it in the final third."
Culverhouse, meanwhile, is pleased that the club's recent injury crisis is beginning to ease.
Defender Aaron Jones is due to return to action within the next fortnight while midfielder Jordan Richards played the majority of Saturday's game at St Ives after returning from a hamstring problem.
Fellow midfielder Ryan Jarvis is also in contention for a starting spot again after being rested against the Saints.
"It's good to have bodies back," said Culverhouse.
"I spoke to Ryan (Jarvis) before Saturday as I thought he had looked a little bit leggy at Hitchin and thought that three games in a week might have been too much for him.
"Jordan Richards got some good minutes under his belt and I thought he was excellent for us while Aaron Jones is possibly only a week or two away from being back.
"We are now getting players back on the bench who can come on and make a difference for us during a game."
