King’s Lynn Town bid to go five unbeaten at lowly Cirencester

Have your say

King’s Lynn Town begin a run of fixtures against sides in the bottom half of the Southern League Premier Division table with a trip to Cirencester Town tomorrow.

Cirencester are fifth from bottom in the league standings (see page 93) and picked up what could turn out to be a precious point in a 1-1 draw when the two sides met at The Walks back in October.

Although the Centurions pulled off a 1-0 victory at Stratford Town last weekend, they had failed to win in their 11 games before that, registering two draws and nine defeats.

Matt Liddiard is leading scorer for the west country outfit with seven goals to his name in all competitions.

Linnets boss Gary Setchell will be hoping his side improve on their record against sides in the bottom eight this campaign.

Lynn go into the match on the back of a mini four-game unbeaten run, having picked up points against three sides in the top five in the last fortnight. Tuesday night’s home clash against St Neots was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch following a lunchtime inspection at The Walks.

It was Lynn’s first home postponement since the Hungerford game was lost to the elements last March.

Lynn are next back in home action on Tuesday night when they entertain Wroxham in the Norfolk Senior Cup.

Striker Leon Mettam, currently on loan at Spalding United, opened his account for the Tulips with a brace during the Tulips’ 4-3 defeat at Carlton Town in Division One South of the Northern Premier League on Tuesday evening.
