King's Lynn Town assistant boss satisfied with a point on the road at Kidderminster Harriers





Kidderminster Harriers 1 King's Lynn Town 1

Assistant King's Lynn Town boss Hugo Langton declared himself satisfied with a point on the road – despite seeing his side lose further on league leaders AFC Fylde.

Ashley Hemmings opened the scoring for the hosts at Aggborough Stadium early on, before Lynn top scorer Gold Omotayo equalised from the penalty spot six minutes later.

AFC Fylde's 3-2 victory over Darlington means the Linnets are now three points off their rivals, who have a game in hand.

Langton toold BBC Radio Norfolk: "It's a point away from home, a point more than we had this morning.

"It wasn't a great game, but it was a well-earned point. We could have won it, they could have won it, maybe a draw's fair.

"There was a foul on the goalkeeper, by the way, and we feel the goal should not have stood."

Langton was again frustrated with the disruption throughout the game, saying. "They want the ball off the pitch. They want the game stopped, they want us not to get into any kind of rhythm.

"There was a game recently against Buxton when the dead time was 60 minutes – can you believe that?

"We want the ball on the pitch. It's been a bit frustrating, but we're getting used to it now, so it is what it is."

Next up for the Linnets is a trip to Brackley Town on Tuesday night – a game that is being streamed by the National League as part of a pilot test event.
