King's Lynn Town's trip to York City in the National League North is a 'freebie'
King’s Lynn Town manager Ian Culverhouse has described tomorrow’s trip to table-topping York City as a ‘freebie’ for his high-flying side.
The Minstermen proudly sit at the top of the National League North standings with an unbeaten record, but the game holds no fears for newly-promoted Lynn.
Culverhouse said: “It’s a freebie for us. We’ve got nothing to fear going to York, who are top and should win the league easily.
“We will go there and give it a real go and if they’re better than us on the day then so be it.
“York City are a massive football club, an ex-Football League side, but we will do our best to put on a performance.
“It’s a beautiful old stadium, but these boys will relish going to play there. We will try to get on the ball as much as we can and try to cause them a problem.
“We know it will be difficult but our season won’t be defined by playing York City away.”
The Lynn chief may again be forced to shuffle his pack with striker Michael Gash, who missed the FA Cup replay victory over Alfreton in midweek, a huge doubt.
“His ankle is very swollen,” admitted Culverhouse.
“He has been resting it and has been receiving extensive treatment from our physio Carol (Holland) so it will be touch-and-go.”
But making changes doesn’t worry the Lynn boss, who has once again praised the flexibility of his players on the pitch.
“The quality of those players in that changing room is very high,” he said.
“What you can throw at them, they are quick to grasp it. Their football intellect and insight is very good.
“You can talk to some players and it goes three feet over their heads, but this lot take it in and listen and you get a response.”
