On Saturday The Linnets take a break from National League North duties as they enter the FA Trophy trail for the first time this season when Hereford visit The Walks for a third qualifying round fixture ( 3pm). After another run of away day Saturday’s this weekend is the first of three consecutive Walks Saturday afternoon’s for home fans to enjoy their teams recent good run of form.
Whilst Town moved into top spot in the table with last weekend’s 2 – 1 Southport success Hereford were on the receiving end of a 5 – 1 reverse at Altrincham , a result that left many people’s pre-season promotion favourites in 13th place in the league standings. Consistency appears to be the Bulls problem to date but with the pressure of accumulating league points off for the day they should be able to play with the freedom that they haven’t been able to over the previous weeks and will provide the Linnets with a tough examination of their trophy credentials.
Lynn will again be without Ryan Fryatt and Chris Smith but are able to welcome Michael Gash back into the squad following his suspension last weekend.
The winners of Saturday’s match will receive £3,750 in prize money with the losers collecting £1,250.
If the tie ends all square the replay will be at Edgar Street on Tuesday 26th November.
The Reserves have a Norfolk Thurlow Nunn Division One North derby on Saturday at Diss Town.
Lynn ladies return to ERWFL action when AFC Sudbury visit River Lane (1.30pm kick off).
