King's Lynn Town flying high ahead of Spennymoor Town clash in National League North
King's Lynn Town already have already accumulated more points than they did at the same stage of last season heading into tomorrow's big clash with Spennymoor Town at The Walks.
And while a lot of the attention in the early part of their incredible National League North campaign has fallen on the dynamic front pairing of Adam Marriott and Michael Gash, one of emerging stars of the show has been midfield dynamo Jordan Richards.
Former Notts County youngster Richards has been 'Mr Consistent' in the middle of the park for the league leaders and his recent contribution to the cause hasn't gone unnoticed by his boss.
Manager Ian Culverhouse said: "The kid (Richo) has been unbelievable in the past couple of months. He really has stood up and become a driving force in our midfield and I'm glad he scored against Boston.
"He covers every blade of grass and his energy levels are unbelievable. He puts tackles in, breaks things up and drives forward with the ball.
"Jordan really has stepped up and his performance levels have been incredible. You don't have to say anything to him, he just gets on with it.
"It's plain and simple with Jordan and his understanding of the game is good too."
Spennymoor Town are one of the leading teams in the form guide over the last ten matches and Culverhouse is well aware of the threat they will pose.
"They're a very good side," admitted the Lynn boss.
"We got our backsides kicked there and we were lucky to come in at the interval only one goal down.
"I said on the day we nicked a point, and we did, and now all of a sudden they are in the play-off places.
"We are going to have to perform at a real high level to get anything out of the game. It's going to be a big ask to get our energy levels this high again in just a few days."
Midfielder Ryan Jarvis is serving a one-match suspension while Sam Kelly (calf problem) will be monitored ahead of the game.
