King’s Lynn Town FC boss Gary Setchell is urging his players to put Saturday’s shambolic display behind them when they travel to high-flying

Ashton United tonight.

Setchell pulled no punches following Lynn’s 4-0 home defeat to Rushall Olympic and wants to see the right reaction.

The Linnets have only picked up nine points out of a possible 27 since the turn of the year, and Setchell said: “We are going to be remembered how we finish this season and at the minute we are not finishing it very well.

“At the moment we are going through a pretty low spot and it’s very worrying. Nobody is more worried than me. We’ve got two of the hardest fixtures in the league coming up and it is no good throwing the towel in and feeling sorry for ourselves.

“The players have got to keep going. We’ve got to go to Ashton and turn in a performance.

“The players are enjoying playing away more than at home at the minute and I’ve told them the way to get people on your side is to play well and work hard and fans will cheer you home.

“But on the flip side when you are not playing well they will be on your backs and we’ve got to deal with that.”

Lynn hope to complete the signing of attacking Polish midfielder Jacek Zielonka, from Lowestoft Town, in time for the visit to the play-off chasers.

Zielonka (27) signed for Lowestoft at the beginning of October, making his debut as substitute in the FA Cup victory over Tamworth.

He made a total of nine appearances for the Trawlerboys, his last being a substitute against AFC Fylde, scoring within a minute of taking the field, at the start of this season.

He trialed with Histon before signing for Lowestoft.

His previous clubs include Polish sides Lubonski KS, 1920 Mosina, Concordia Elblag and Pomezania Malbork.

On Zielonka, Setchell said: “Jacek is coming in. He has been training with us and hasn’t had the opportunities he would have liked at Lowestoft.

“He isn’t a household name, but he is bright, hungry, fit and quick and we will give him a go.

“It is a little bit like the George Thomson scenario when he came to us from Histon. He wasn’t getting the chances there and found himself a career with us so to speak.

“Hopefully Jacek can do the same. It is an opportunity for him and we need bodies in. The lads I’ve talked to at Lowestoft have all spoken highly of him.”
