Linnets look to maintain play-off push

King’s Lynn Town boss Ian Culverhouse says his team need to tighten up defensively if they are to maintain their Southern League Central Premier play-off challenge.

Although delighted at getting three points in difficult conditions against Royston on Tuesday night, Culverhouse was unhappy with the amount of chances that the Linnets gave to the visitors.

“As long as we can tighten up and defend in the right areas of the pitch then we’ll be alright,” admitted Culverhouse.

“It’s important that we stop conceding silly goals and we’ve got to deal with what other teams bring to the party.

“We will work hard at it on the training field and we will get better at it.”

Tomorrow, it’s third versus fifth at the Walks when the Linnets entertain Alvechurch.

The reverse fixture in November marked the first game of Culverhouse’s return to Lynn dugout and resulted in a fine 3-0 victory.

With the arrival of some wintry weather, the club has advised supporters to keep in touch with social media ahead of the weekend.

“Firstly, I have to say at this stage that it’s very much all systems go for the weekend,” said club media officer Mark Hearle.

“I have spoken with Steve Curtis (groundsman) and he tells me he has been able to work on the pitch and get it level. However, it is now frozen after a heavy frost on Wednesday night.

“We have no control on the weather so I suggest that everyone should keep an eye across our media platforms and local radio for updates on conditions and any inspections that may take place.”
