Linnets face tough test at AFC Rushden & Diamonds
King’s Lynn Town will resume their Southern League Central Premier promotion challenge with a trip to AFC Rushden & Diamonds tomorrow.
After last weekend’s enforced weather break, the Linnets travel to Hayden Road to take on a Diamonds outfit who still harbour hopes of making the play-offs themselves.
Linnets manager Ian Culverhouse believes the hosts will provide his team with a stern test on their travels.
Culverhouse said: “I’m expecting a difficult afternoon. I think they are one of the best organised and set up teams in the division and have collected some impressive results along the way.
“They are another one of the teams in and around the top area of the table and will be wanting the points as badly as we do.
“With just the one loss in 13 home league games to date that tells you all you need to know about them.
“From our point of view we must find a way to create them problems and give them a little something to think about. If we can do that then we will give ourselves a very good chance of doing something.”
Culverhouse wants his players to make the most of any chances that come their way in Northamptonshire.
“We must sharpen up at the top of the field and convert more of the chances that we create,” admitted the Lynn boss.
“It’s a case of seeing the chance to take a shot instead of another pass, buying a ticket in the lottery say, and having a pop.
“Everyone is okay and Aaron Jones is moving along nicely now following his operation.”
