We must improve at home, says Linnets skipper Michael Clunan

February 15, 2019

King's Lynn Town skipper Michael Clunan says the club need to address their poor home form if they are to remain in the Southern League play-off picture.
The Linnets entertain Redditch United at The Walks on Saturday and have crucial home games against both Coalville and Alvechurch on the horizon.
Lynn have drawn six of their 14 games in front of their own supporters so far and Clunan said: "We have to improve at home massively. Our home form hasn't been good enough and it is something we need to put right.
"I think we only lost one game at home last season and this campaign it has been the draws which have been killing us at our place.
"We've still got some massive games to come and we need to be better prepared and ready for when teams visit us."
Despite their indifferent form on their own patch, Clunan believes the team deserve more credit for the way they have forged their way up to fourth place in the Southern League Central Premier standings.
“After seven or eight games of the season, I think if you’d have said to the fans that we’d be towards the top near the end, then there would have been a few questions asked,” he said.
“We went on a great unbeaten run of 19 games and put ourselves in a position where we are expected to be in the play-offs.
“The lads have done great and I think they deserve a bit of credit to think where they’ve come from
“We were 19th in the league at one point and now we are in the top five so it would be criminal to throw it all away now.”
Redditch boss Paul Smith has this week been running the run the rule over former Birmingham and Partick Thistle player Jack Storer. 
Storer is back in training after suffering ligament damage and could feature at The Walks.
The Reds, who have lost to both Kettering and Stratford in their last two games, are without a win in four.
Looking ahead to the game, Linnets boss Ian Culverhouse said: "It's about bouncing back from last Saturday, staying strong and trying to put another run together between now and the end of the season.
"Everytime we got into a crossing position or put a ball into the box against Rushden it wasn't good enough and that's something we need to improve against Redditch.
"It's the little details and fundamentals that we have to be spot-on with now. If we do that then the next 13 games we will be fine."
The Linnets, meanwhile, have rearranged the postponed home game against Alvechurch for Tuesday, March, 19 (7.45pm).
Saturday also sees King's Lynn Town Reserves in action with a trip to Debenham LC in Division One North of the Thurlow Nunn League.
