King's Lynn Town boss relishing taking on big-spending Hereford in National League North

Ian Culverhouse is relishing the prospect of taking on big-spending Hereford at the Walks tomorrow.

The west country outfit are one of the favourites for promotion going into the new National League North season.

And the Lynn chief can’t wait for the chance to pit his wits against the Bulls, who have picked up four points from their opening two fixtures.

“It should be one hell of a game,” admitted Culverhouse.

“They’ve spent a lot of money this season and are going for it. We’ve got one of the big boys coming to our place, so let’s see how far we are away from them.

“We’ve got nothing to lose against them, so let’s see if we can cause a surprise, and it would be a surprise because of the amount of money that they are spending.”

Despite picking up their first success of the campaign at home to Kettering on Tuesday night, the Lynn boss is still refusing to look beyond the opening few fixtures.

“Like I’ve said before, these first ten games are a learning process for us,”

“We’re going to lose games this season, but it’s how we come back from it and the boys’ response from Saturday was magnificent.”

The Linnets’ faithful got fully behind Culverhouse’s men on Tuesday night and the Lynn chief was quick to praise their impact during their first home game of the campaign.

He said: “The crowd were magnificent. We appreciate their support and long may it continue as it really drives the players on.

“Hopefully there will be another bumper one on Saturday.”

Tomorrow’s game at the Walks will see segregation in place with the Hereford supporters being housed at the Hospital end of the stadium.

The Bulls are expected to bring between 200 and 400 fans to West Norfolk and another big four-figure is anticipated.
