The Linnets suffered their first reverse of the season since the opening weekend of the season following a 3 – 0 defeat at table topping York City on Saturday.
Michael Gash returned to the Lynn line up after missing the Alfreton fixture in the week. However there was a blow for Ian Culverhouse who lost Ryan Fryatt to a knee injury, also picked up in midweek.
Chances were at a premium throughout most of the first half but the hosts made the most of the one which came their way as Andy Bond tapped home from close range from an Adriano Moke low centre.
Town enjoyed their best spell of the game at the start of the second half as Gash saw an effort blocked by Peter Jameson in the home goal and substitute Jordan Richards firing over after some neat Linnets approach play. That was as good though as it got for the visitors as on 71 minutes David Ferguson provided a neat close range finish to increase his teams advantage. The same player then nodded wide and only a swift Ross Barrows interception denied Alex Kempster from scoring. However with 5 minutes remaining the hosts made completely certain of the points with a Joe Tait header direct from a corner.
King’s Lynn Town: Street, Jones, Fox, Jarvis (Barrows), Smith, McAuley, Clunan (Carey)), Payne, Gash, Marriott, Henderson (Richards).
Subs: Kelly, Stewart.
Referee: Aaron Bannister
Attendance: 3082 ( 274 away supporters)
Meanwhile the Reserves collected their second league victory in a row with a fine 2 – 0 win over Ipswich Wanderers at the Fenland Stadium, Wisbech. Joe Taylor and Owen Gilbert were the scorers.
The Reserves are next in action on Tuesday evening (7.45pm)
at March Town in the Division one knockout cup.
