Home defeat for Linnets

February 2, 2020

The Linnets tasted defeat for only the third time this season, and their first at The Walks in 18 months, on Saturday as Kidderminster turned the form book upside down to take all three National League North points home with them.


Two first half goals from Alex Prosser and Ashley Chambers gave the visitors an interval lead and despite Ian Culverhouse making a double interval change , introducing Ryan Hawkins and Dayle Southwell for Nathan Fox and Chris Henderson, The Linnets were unable to find a way back into the game, despite having long spells of possession throughout the half. The best chances falling to Southwell, shortly after half, and Adam Marriott, both saved by the visiting keeper. 


With York City beating close rivals Chester by a 4 - 2 margin the margin of the Linnets lead at the top of the table has been reduced to a single point with Lynn still having two games in hand over the second placed team.

The Linnets are without a fixture next Saturday because of Leamington's FA Trophy involvement. Their next fixture is a Monday night visit to Gloucester on the 10th of February (7.45pm)
