King's Lynn Town prepare for Kidderminster Harriers visit in National League North - everything you need to know before the latest big game

Mark Hearle wants Linnets fans to remain completely onside as the club look continue the feel-good factor currently engulfing The Walks.

The King's Lynn Town general manager has called on supporters to maintain their backing with the club holding a four-point advantage at the top of the National League North standings.

As Lynn prepare to host Kidderminster Harriers at The Walks on Saturday, Hearle said: "It's another big home game for the club, as they all are from here on in.

"The support for the York City was fantastic and amongst that number were many people attending their first game for a long time or their some who were making their first-ever visit to The Walks.

"The whole afternoon went very well and a win over one of our near rivals would hopefully mean that a good many of those people will be tempted to return again to give us a watch on Saturday.

"There is a real 'feel good' factor and buzz around the ground at present and I've noticed that this now seems to have transferred itself into the town and the community."

Underdogs Lynn, who are currently on a 14-game unbeaten league run, continue to take everyone by surprise and their incredible form has completely captured the imagination of the West Norfolk public.

More than 4,000 fans packed into The Walks for Lynn's last league encounter against second-placed York City.

"I was out for lunch after the York game and overheard a conversation between a table of four saying what a result the club had achieved the previous day against a huge team," remarked Hearle.

"Going forward it's very important that we carry this momentum on and have as much support behind us as possible.

"Saturday will be another difficult and testing fixture against another former football league club.

"They are not enjoying the best of seasons, but I dare say will be very keen to gain revenge for our victory over them earlier in the season."

Lynn, meanwhile, have released a statement in regards to the level crossing gates on Tennyson Road being closed over the weekend, which means there will be no access to the Stadium from the Wootton Road/Gaywood side of the town on Saturday.

Hearle has passed on the following advice for Linnets supporters thinking of attending the match.

"We have been made aware by Network Rail of the road closure this weekend of Tennyson Road," he said.

"Firstly I must make it clear that the usual full access from the Southgates roundabout end of the road will be open as usual for supporters attending the game.

"Those coming from the other direction will need to find an alternative route to the stadium and will need to set out on their journey a little earlier than normal.

"I would also suggest that an idea may also be to use the multi-level car park behind the police station and walk through the park to ease some of the congestion that may occur in the area of the stadium.

"We apologise to everyone in advance about the disruption that this may cause whilst coming along to Saturday's game, but the situation is out of our hands.

"By giving advanced warning of the situation, hopefully our supporters will be able to adjust their journey times."
