Linnets look to make it four wins on the bounce at Rushall Olympic
Finishing as high in the table as possible is the sole intention of King’s Lynn Town manager Ian Culverhouse going into tomorrow’s trip to Rushall Olympic – and he wants his players to continue building momentum.
The Linnets have won their their three Central Southern Premier Division matches, with a 4-1 victory over play-off rivals Coalville last Saturday highlighting their recent good form.
But it still remains extremely tight at the top of the table and Culverhouse knows his side’s current momentum will serve them well heading into a crucial month of fixtures.
“It’s all about momentum and at the moment we have plenty of that heading into Saturday,” admitted Culverhouse.
“The players are working extremely hard to make sure they pick up results.
“The ones who have been playing want to continue the momentum that we’re on and some of the guys that get a chance to play will certainly want to stake their claim for a place in the team.
“We’ve got good competition throughout the squad.”
Saturday’s home performance highlighted what the Linnets are capable of and Culverhouse added: “If we keep producing performances like Coalville and build and build we are going to be not too far away.
“We were outstanding, we really were, from start to finish it was a real good performance.
“I would say from back to front everyone – even the subs who came on, their attitude to come on and be a part of it was outstanding.”
Rushall Olympic bounced back from their last-gasp defeat at league leaders Kettering Town in fine style with a hard-earned 1-0 win at Hitchin Town last weekend.
The Linnets defeated the Pics 3-0 in the reverse fixture at The Walks in December but it was far from straightforward.
“They are a good side and their victory at Hitchin shows that,” said Culverhouse.
“There’s no room for complacency and we will need to be on it from the very first whistle.”
Lynn remain four points clear of Rushden and Diamonds, Stratford Town and Coalville, who accounted for Kettering on Tuesday night, in third place.
But the Ravens still have a game in hand over the Linnets while Stratford host Rushden in another huge six-pointer at the top of the table.
