King’s Lynn Town 1 Slough Town 0
A Tom Ward second-half goal meant The Linnets cemented their grip on second spot on Tuesday by putting a dent in ten-man Slough’s promotion hopes.
King’s Lynn Town are second in the Evo-Stik Southern League table on 79 points from 37, four points ahead of third-placed Weymouth; while Slough are 15 points adrift of Lynn with 14 games to fit in between now and the end of April.
Following Ward’s 64th-minute goal the visiting Matt Lench picked up his second yellow card of the evening for dissent to be sent-off.
Lynn made just the one change from the starting line-up with Craig Parker coming in for Simon Lappin who picked up a knock on Saturday.
Tom Siddons returned to the bench after a brief spell with Spalding United.
