Brilliant win for King's Lynn Town
Maidenhead United 2 King’s Lynn Town 3
King’s Lynn Town come from behind to win at Maidenhead United this afternoon in a repeat of last season’s scoreline at York Road.
Two goals in three minutes at the start of the second half set the Linnets on their way after Kane Ferdinand had headed the hosts into a slender advantage at the break.
But a controversial penalty saw Sam Barrett equalise in injury time before Lynn broke straight up the field from the restart to net a winner through Brett McGavin.
Despite enjoying the majority of possession in the first half, Lynn found themselves trailing to Ferdinand header going into the interval.
But substitute Malachi Linton - who came on for the injured Junior Morias in the first half - levelled matters two minutes after the restart.
And Lynn took the lead three minutes later after a long ball over the top from Paul Jones was converted by Ross Barrows who found himself in acres of space.
Barrett made it 2-2 from the spot before McGavin drilled home a dramatic winner less than a minute later.
It ended a run of four successive defeats for Ian Culverhouse’s side who have picked up all seven of their National League points on their travels this season.
The Linnets will be hoping for a bumper crowd for the visit of Barnet on Tuesday night, having reduced their ticket prices following a fans’ forum on Friday night.
