Linnets boss Gary Setchell takes his King’s Lynn Town side to Weymouth tomorrow looking for his players to eradicate the errors at the back.

Lynn picked up a crucial three points with a derby win at Histon on Tuesday night but only after an error at the back had let the hosts back into the game.

Setchell said: “We’ve got to stop giving bad goals away. Out of the last four goals we’ve conceded two have been goalkeeping errors and the other two have been from set-pieces.

“In the main we are defending well and working hard all over the pitch but we’ve got to cut out the mistakes at the back and start scoring more goals at the other end of the pitch.”

After the Histon win, Setchell said: “I didn’t think we could miss as many chances as we did on Saturday but in the first-half at Histon we did.

“You just have to tell the players to keep going. We deserved to win but it was a horrible game from a manager’s point of view as it was so open.

“I’m delighted we won but I’m feeling absolutely shattered.”

On the trip to Weymouth, Setchell said: “I’ve told the players that they are not going to get 20 chances to score there.

“It will probably be more like four or five as Weymouth are good defensively and they are the home side.

“If we get on the bus home on Saturday and we haven’t been beaten, it will be an excellent result.”
