King’s Lynn Town must be more clinical, warns Setchell before Hayes and Cambridge trips

King’s Lynn Town FC boss Gary Setchell wants his side to be more clinical in the final third of the field going into the away games against Hayes and Yeading tomorrow and Cambridge City on Monday.

He was far from happy with his side’s display during the last-gasp Norfolk Senior Cup victory over Wroxham on Tuesday, even though it extended Lynn’s unbeaten run to six matches.

Setchell said: “I had a look from the stands in the first half because you do see a lot up there and I’d like to do that more regularly.

“I didn’t want to use either Lee (Stevenson) or Sam (Gaughran) but in the end we needed their experience and that’s probably credit to Wroxham.

“The level of the Slough performance at home to the Wroxham display with almost the same group of players is unbelievable.”

Defender Tom Ward bagged both of Lynn’s goals in the second half.

“Tom has done well since he’s come in. He’s a good player but I think even he will agree that it is hard to play for King’s Lynn,” admitted Setchell.

“There’s always a lot of pressure at Lynn whether its managing, playing or supporting. It is hard, it’s not like playing for some of these teams who get 110 people and don’t mind if they win, lose or draw.

“That’s the pressure we play and I manage under and it was important that we got a winner for sure.”

H&Y had a 2-1 win over Redditch United last Saturday before a 3-2 midweek defeat to Basingstoke on Tuesday night.

Cambridge City, meanwhile, remain deep in trouble after losing 4-3 at home to Slough Town last weekend.
