Walks clash is first of two important home fixtures in space of four days followed by Alvechurch

By Lynn News Reporter

King's Lynn Town tomorrow (3pm) welcome Hitchin Town to The Walks – the first of two important home Southern Premier Central Division fixtures in the space of four days.

Alvechurch visit on Tuesday evening but firstly the Linnets must negotiate a revenge mission against the Canaries of Hitchin, who lie in 16th place while Lynn sit in third spot, at the weekend.

With the games beginning to run out and the play-off chasing teams seemingly becoming closer to each other as the week's pass progress, manager Ian Culverhouse knows his men need to return to winning ways to confirm that their season continues beyond the regular season.

Culverhouse said: "We have now reached the stage of the season where winning is everything.

"We were all disappointed with how things went last weekend at Rushall and we are big enough to know that we were not good enough on the day.

"We have to be better in most areas than we showed over there and we now have to go out on Saturday and show our supporters we are the real deal and have what it takes to compete and battle and collect the points we need.

"There's no point worrying about other teams and all of the scenarios that they have going forward compared to us.

"As a team we have not spoken about Alvechurch or anything beyond that yet.

"We have to deal with Hitchin Town first and the challenges they will present to us.

"The game at theirs in January was difficult and played on a pitch that was freezing up as the game went along but on the night they deserved the win and the points.

"We want to finish as high as we can in the league, so if that means a scrappy 1-0 win here and there over the next few weeks then yes, of course, we will take it.

"After the start to the season the lads had where they didn’t do themselves justice they have picked themselves up and now occupy a position our supporters could only dream of in early September.

"We now go again and see where we end up."

The Linnets have no new injury concerns but will have to make do without Aaron Jones who begins a three-match suspension following his red card last weekend.

Striker Harry Limb is back at the club following his loan spell at Pinchbeck United.

Hitchin arrive at the Walks in 16th place in the league having secured three league wins on the road this season.

Last weekend the Canaries collected a point in a 0-0 draw at Halesowen Town.

King's Lynn Town Reserves have no fixture this weekend.
