Updates as Maidenhead United host King's Lynn Town in the National League

King's Lynn Town return to National League action tonight when they travel to Maidenhead United.

The Linnets travel to York Road looking for their first win against the Magpies in five attempts.

Other than a 1-1 draw in the Southern League back in 2006, Lynn have lost the previous three meetings 1-0, the last of which came in the 2007 play-off final.

Lynn go into the game on the back of an excellent 2-2 draw against Yeovil Town at The Walks on Saturday.

Ian Culverhouse's side were twice forced to come from behind to claim a point, but won many admirers with their brand of football against last season's play-off semi-finalists.

Maidenhead United finished fourth from bottom last season but were reprieved from relegation as a result of the knock-on effects of Bury’s expulsion from League One.

The Magpies have seen a period of rebuilding this summer with a number of player moves including the addition of former Norwich City winger Josh Coley and the arrival of no-nonsense centre back Manny Parry from Woking.

Manager Alan Devonshire – who started his managerial career with the Magpies – returned to the club for a second time five years ago.

On Saturday, they lost 3-0 at Sutton United in their opening game of the new campaign.
