King’s Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell is in positive mood going into tomorrow’s huge six-pointer against Hungerford Town.

The Linnets are unbeaten in their last five matches after they picked up a key point at promotion rivals Leamington last Saturday.

Hungerford moved into the top-five of the table after a 2-0 victory over Bideford on Monday before Leamington’s derby win over Stratford dropped Lynn a further place in the table on Tuesday night.

Setchell said: “We’ve turned this place into a little bit of a fortress, especially over the last two months, not conceding at home and rattling off three or four wins on the spin.

“Hungerford are a very good side and I was very impressed with them. I think seven wins from 11 would be enough for us now and I think we are capable of doing it.”

“We’ve 11 games to go, we’ve got ourselves right in the mix and I firmly believe that it’s in our hands with the fixtures we’ve got left.

“We’ve already beaten the top three here, we’ve just got to make sure that we beat the three underneath them and we will be in a good position.

“My message to the players in the last three or four games has been this is why you come to King’s Lynn because you want to play in big games.

“Let’s keep making each game bigger and bigger by winning to make our season even longer.”

The Reserves’ Norfolk Senior Cup semi-final with Dereham Town was rained off on Tuesday, with a new date to be agreed.
