King's Lynn's hunt for a striker continues heading into National League clash at Boreham Wood
King’s Lynn Town’s hunt for a striker goes on going into tomorrow’s National League clash at high-flying Boreham Wood.
The Linnets have so far been left frustrated in their attempts to bring in extra firepower as their league status remains very much firmly in the balance.
Manager Tommy Widdrington is believed to have a couple of targets in mind but any deals are dependent on the other clubs finding a replacement.
Lynn remain marooned in the bottom three of the league standings, some 14 points adrift of the safety zone going into their final 20 games.
There has been plenty movement in the opposite direction this week with Ethan Coleman, Michael Gyasi and Tyler Knowles all leaving The Walks – two on a temporary basis.
Coleman has joined League Two side Leyton Orient on a two-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee, while Gyasi and Knowles have been shipped out on loan to Dover Athletic and Wisbech Town respectively.
The exit of Coleman, who joined Lynn on loan from Brackley Town in March 2021 before making the move permanent in May, is a huge loss to the club.
His two spells at The Walks saw him make a total of 33 appearances, scoring twice, but the youngster oozed class playing as a defensive midfielder and more recently as a centre half.
Gyasi, meanwhile, made 12 league appearances this season but only three of these have been in the starting line-up.
His departure to the Whites coincided with them winning their first game of the campaign on Tuesday night with a 1-0 victory over Eastleigh.
The stats don’t make pretty reading for Lynn – with just one win in their last 14 league games – going into tomorrow’s encounter. Boreham Wood are unbeaten in their last 15 games – their last defeat was at Chesterfield on October 23.
Striker Tyrone Marsh has five goals in his last seven games after returning to The Wood for a second spell with the club in February of last year.
Manager Luke Garrard has been in charge since 2015, and has guided the club to the National League play-off final, and the fourth round of this season’s FA Cup.
