King’s Lynn Town will look to return to winning ways tonight when they entertain in-form Matlock Town at The Walks.

Gary Setchell’s side head into the clash having picked up one point out of a possible 18 since the beginning of February.

The Linnets have injury concerns over Ryan Fryatt and Peter Winn, both of whom limped off early during the 3-1 reverse at FC United of Manchester at the weekend.

The Gladiators enjoyed a run of five league wins in February – a change of fortune compared to earlier months – which has come about since the appointment of manager Mark Hume in mid-January.

Matlock have strengthened over recent weeks with a number of loan players coming in.

Striker Danny Frost has joined from Bradford Park Avenue, Jamie McDonagh has had his loan from Sheffield United renewed recently and Ted Cribley is on loan from Barrow.

Otis Khan, another loanee from Sheffield United, is a player to watch from dead-ball situations, scoring in three successive games for the Gladiators from free-kicks.

Lynn defender Jackson Ramm’s tenth booking of the season, picked up on Saturday, means he will miss the away matches against Workington and Frickley Athletic later this month.
