Linnets battle for a point at Spennymoor Town

September 8, 2019

League leaders King's Lynn Town stretched their unbeaten run to nine games after twice coming from behind to secure a battling point at Spennymoor Town.
The Linnets were second best for long periods of the contest at the Brewery Field, but second half headers from Adam Marriott and Rory McAuley from corners earned the Linnets a valuable point on their travels.
Spennymoor completely dominated the first half, but only had one goal to show for their efforts of the first 45 minutes.
It arrived after 26 minutes when a throw-in was flicked on by Rob Ramshaw into the path of Adam Boyes who drilled a volley past the arm of Lynn goalkeeper Alex Street.
A bad as they were in the opening half, both Michael Gash and Marriott both hit the woodwork for the Linnets in the space of two minutes.
After a scrappy start to the second period, it was Ian Culverhouse's side who forced their way back into the game when Marriott headed home from a few yards out after McAuley had flicked on the original corner.
Spennymoor regained the lead when Boyes turned provider, to play in James Roberts who slotted past Street from a tight angle.
But Lynn refused to lie down and McAuley rose unmarked to head past Matt Gould to draw the visitors level for a second time.
Lynn remain a point clear of second-placed York City, who shared the points with Southport in a 1-1 home draw, while Chester are now third following a 3-1 home success over Guiseley.
