King’s Lynn Town FC took a share of the derby spoils against ten-man local rivals Cambridge City last night (Tuesday 17).
Both sides had chances before Lynn’s porous defence again let them down, Erkan Okay was given an easy ride by Jordan Yong and his cross was met at the back stick by the unmarked Sam Alderson who volleyed the ball across the six yard box and Tunde Adewunmi poked home.
Lee Stevenson replied by latching onto a Leon Mettam flick and he struck a half volley from the angle that hit the post.
The second half didn’t really get going until the 68th minute when City’s Harry Norman got himself sent off for a lunge on Yong when already on a yellow card.
That spurred Lynn into life and they equalised on 75 minutes. Away keeper Ordonez, who was superb all evening, was the victim of a very harsh bobble from a scuffed effort from recent signing Leon Mettam - his first league goal for Lynn since coming back to The Walks - that bounced over him and into the net.
Lynn: Street, Zieklonka (Gaughran HT) Yong, Quigley, Castellan (A.Clunan 83) McWilliams, M.Clunan, Stevenson, Edge (L.Fryatt 90+5) Mettam and Hilliard. Subs not used: Mills and Pearson.
