By Pete Woodhouse

Midfielder Craig Parker believes Lynn’s morale-boosting FA Cup victory at Histon can kick-start the club’s league form.

The Linnets head to Halesowen on Saturday with just four points from their opening six fixtures.

But Parker hopes Lynn can build on their sensational seven-goal showing when they travel to the West Midlands.

“We’ve got to take Tuesday’s result and performance into Saturday’s league game,” admitted Parker. “We know we haven’t done ourselves justice this season and the league is our bread and butter.

“The important thing is that we need to get some points on the board and start churning out a few wins.

“Football is all about momentum and confidence and hopefully the cup result can kick-start our season.”

Parker, who opened his goal account for the season during the 7-0 win, added: “It was really important that everyone pulled together to get a result at Histon.

“Once the first goal went in, you could see the confidence grow throughout the team.

“We always knew that we had been under-performing and as players we have to take our fair share of the responsibility.

“But it hasn’t been through the want of trying and everything just clicked into place against Histon.”
