King's Lynn assistant boss reflects on draw and looks ahead to Peterborough Sports trip

King's Lynn Town assistant boss Hugo Langton remained positive after King's Lynn Town stretched their unbeaten run to five matches in the National League North.

The Linnets were held to a 1-1 against Leamington at The Walks in a game which saw the hosts spurn a catalogue of chances.

Theo Widdrington tapped in to give Lynn the lead before The Brakes levelled through Dan Turner in the second half.

Visiting goalkeeper Callum Hawkins stood between Lynn and an avalanche of goals with a string of fine saves.

Speaking after the game, Langton said: “You can make as many chances as you want and if you don’t take them, you don’t win.

“Credit to their keeper, he made some good saves as well but also the goal we conceded was a little bit soft from our point of view.

“There is view. There is an old phrase, you have to be dominant in both boxes. We were in a sense, but there was one occasion we weren’t dominant in our own box and perhaps we needed to be a bit more dominant going forward.

“But there are still a lot of positives to take out of this. There are five games played, 41 to go so we are in a great place.”

Next up is a difficult trip to Peterborough Sports tomorrow.

Looking ahead to the game, which will see Lynn cross swords with former players Michael Gash, Ryan Fryatt and Nathan Fox, Langton said: “I know Jimmy’s teams, they are well drilled and they are capable of running and they want to run and they will do anything they can to try and beat us on Monday.

“It is the kind of game you want to be involved in in the sense of the locality, I am sure the Lynn fans will come out in force and makes some noise and hopefully it will be a good occasion for everyone.”
