Linnets collect point at Leamington

March 4, 2020

After a month of near inactivity The Linnets finally got themselves back into match action on Tuesday evening with a valuable point in a 0 - 0 draw at Leamington.


Defender Tom Ward returned from an injury lay off with Dayle Southwell given his first start in a Linnets shirt.


In a tight game both sides struggled to create too many clear cut chances throughout the evening with the hosts coming the closest to scoring with an early header striking Alex Street's left hand post. For Lynn both Tom Ward and Ross Barrows drove shots inches wide from angled chances.


The second half saw much of the same with town having slightly the better amount of the ball with substitute Michael Gash putting a shot inches over the bar as the visitor's searched for a late winner.


King's Lynn Town: Street, Jones, Barrows, Ward (Payne), Smith, McAuley, Kelly (Hawkins), Richards, Southwell (Gash), Marriott, Henderson.

Subs (not used): Fox, Jarvis. 


Attendance: 345.


With first place York losing 4-1 at home to Hereford, the Linnets find themselves 2 points behind the leaders but with 4 games in hand. 


The Reserves went down to an injury time goal in a 2-1 league defeat at March Town, Josh Brooks with the Linnets goal. Ryan Fryatt played the full game following his long injury lay off.


The Linnets are back in action on Saturday with a visit to Gateshead in the National League North (3pm).
