Kyle Callan-McFadden is confident King’s Lynn Town can turn their form around and start climbing the National League table.

The Linnets have endured a sticky start to the campaign and are hovering just above the relegation zone with eight points from their opening 11 fixtures.

Lynn slipped to a second defeat on their travels with a 2-0 defeat at Torquay United on Saturday and their cause wasn’t helped by only having 13 fit players.

However, defender Callan-McFadden is confident the team can start winning games going into tonight’s home encounter against Boreham Wood at The Walks.

“We’re lucky that we’ve Tuesday night to put the wrongs of Saturday right,” said the Irish centre-half.

“I think we can turn things around once we get everyone fit. We’ve got a good squad and it’s still very early in the season. As long as everyone is pulling in the same direction then we can turn this around, most definitely.”

Lynn’s squad has been decimated by injuries and such was their predicament the club only had two substitutes in the west country at the weekend.

“It’s got to be tough for the gaffer as he’s limited doing stuff in training with so few players,” said Callan-McFadden. “They are the cards we’ve been dealt so we just have to get on with it.”

Lynn hope that both Dean Bowry and Junior Morias might both be fit enough to make the bench for tonight’s visit of the third-placed outfit.

Tonight’s visitors lost 2-1 at Chesterfield on Saturday for their second league defeat of the campaign.

Summer signing Will Evans scored his first goal for Wood on Saturday against his former club but the defender, who had featured on all Wood’s games this season, was sent off late in the game having picked up two bookings.

Finishing the match with an injury was goalkeeper Nathan Ashmore leaving manager Luke Garrard saying after the match that he may have to look for a replacement to add to his 16-man squad.

Leading scorer for Wood is Dan Boden - albeit by virtue of two penalties.

Boden was responsible for the only goal that saw Lynn lose when they visited Torquay last season.
