Linnets back in action with trip to AFC Rushden & Diamonds

February 8, 2019

After last weekend’s weather enforced break, the Linnets are back in action on Saturday with a visit to AFC Rushden & Diamonds (Hayden Road, 3pm). 
Town will be looking to build some momentum on the back of victory over Royston Town in their last outing, but as manager Ian Culverhouse explains the hosts will provide his team with a stern test.
"I’m expecting a difficult afternoon for sure," admitted Culverhouse.
"I think Rushden are one of the best organised and set up teams in the division and have collected some impressive results along the way. 
"They are also another one of the teams in and around the top area of the table and will be wanting the points as badly as we do.
"With just the one loss in 13 home league games to date that tells you all you need to know about them. 
"From our point of view, we must find a way to create them problems and give them a little something to think about. 
"If we do that we will give ourselves a very good chance of doing something. 
"As I've said before, we must sharpen up at the top of the field and convert more of the chances that we create. 
"It’s a case of seeing the chance to take a shot instead of another pass, buying a ticket in the lottery say, and having a pop. 
"We have all moved on from last weekend, which was disappointing for everyone concerned, and had two excellent sessions in the week in which the lads trained brilliantly. 
"Everyone is okay and Aaron Jones is moving along nicely now following his operation. 
"There is so much to be positive about at the moment within the squad and we will continue to battle for every point that is available between now and April."
The reverse fixture back in October ended in a 1-1 draw with Rory McAuley scoring the Lynn goal.
Last weekend’s postponed fixture with Alvechurch has still to be arranged.
Lynn Reserves are in home league action on Saturday with the visit of Lakenheath in the Thurlow Nunn League Division one North (3pm).
