King's Lynn Town boss praises squad after New Year's Day victory over Boston United in National League North

Ian Culverhouse has admitted his players keep coming up with the answers following the 3-0 New Year's Day win over Boston United.

Goals from ex-Pilgrims Adam Marriott and Jordan Richards put Lynn 2-0 in front at the Jakemans Stadium and Michael Gash completed the scoring 10 minutes from time as the Linnets maintained their four-point advantage at the National League North summit.

It stretched the club's unbeaten run to 13 games in all competitions heading into Saturday's home encounter against fifth-placed Spennymoor Town at The Walks.

Culverhouse, who continues to keep his feet on the ground despite Lynn's lofty position in the table, said: "In the end it was one of the best away performances I have seen for a long, long time.

"We've got nothing to fear. The players are enjoying it and they are just going out and trying their best.

"I can always count on this group of players because of their intellect, football knowledge and togetherness.

"They keep coming up with the answers and finding the way to win football matches.

"Good teams always find a way of winning and, as I said before, today's performance was top drawer."

The Lynn chief was again full of admiration for his strikeforce of Marriott and Gash, who have found the back of the net 35 times between them in all competitions this season.

Marriott bagged his 23rd league goal of the campaign and had a hand in both of Lynn's other efforts as the Linnets delivered a competent display in Lincolnshire.

"Mazza took his goal well," admitted Culverhouse.

"He had a long time to think about it, but he is so cool under pressure, he really is.

"The big man up there (Michael Gash) and him are a real strikeforce, while Hendo (Chris Henderson) also put a real shift in.

"To a man they were magnificent, everyone from 1 to 11 were outstanding and Sonny (Carey) coming off the bench too.

"There's little combinations all over the pitch, but as a group they are a pleasure to work with."
