King's Lynn Town boss - we need to cut out the mistakes
King’s Lynn Town manager Ian Culverhouse has called on his players to eliminate their mistakes.
Culverhouse was disappointed with the two goals his side conceded in the dramatic 3-2 victory over Maidenhead on Tuesday night.
The Linnets scored twice in the final 10 minutes to come from behind and take all three points against the Magpies who registered both of their goals from the penalty spot.
Culverhouse said: “I am chuffed for the boys. But I think we made hard work of it. The two goals we gave away were really soft, the penalties. They shouldn’t have got into those positions in the first place.
“We have got to learn very, very quickly because if we give soft goals away then we are going to be in for a long season.”
Linnets defender Rory McAuley was shrugged off the ball by Nathan Blissett in the build up to the first penalty, which was conceded by Alex Brown, before the ball struck McAuley’s hand in the box for Maidenhead’s second spot kick.
“I think he (McAuley) has just got to be stronger,” said Culverhouse.
“I think he has recognised that in there (the dressing room) and he takes responsibility for that because he is a strong player himself, but he has got to expect contact there.
“Then Brownie has got to learn that if you dive in anywhere around the box he is going to give it.
“And then the second goal, Kingy (Cameron King) got rolled and then it has hit a hand, but the directive this year is anything that hits the hand in the box they are going to be really hard on it, so, again, did he make his frame bigger? I don’t know - anything outside the body line they are going to give these days.
“So, two goals we really have got to tighten up on.”
