Culverhouse believes King's Lynn Town need to be more ‘streetwise’ in the National League
King's Lynn Town boss Ian Culverhouse thinks his players will need to become more “streetwise” as they continue to adjust to National League football.
After picking up four points from their opening two fixtures of the season, the Linnets suffered their second successive league defeat against a classy Boreham Wood outfit on Tuesday night.
Lynn have now shipped eight goals in their last two outings and following their latest disappointment, Culverhouse acknowledged that his side need to brush up on some of the tricks of the trade.
Culverhouse said: "That's two games that we've played against really good sides and we're not at that level yet. It's about how they try to use their bodies and get around the referee.
"They were proper men who knew how to play the game and they managed it superbly on the pitch and from the bench.
"To stay in this league, we've got to learn all of the tricks of the trade and look at how streetwise they were. Once we do that, we'll be better for the experience."
The Lynn boss was disappointed with the dismissal of Jamar Lozar for two bookable offences in the first half.
"I thought the sending-off was ridiculous," he lamented.
"They weren't deliberate fouls and if they were two yellow cards then the game is becoming comical."
On Saturdat, the Linnets will be hoping to bounce back when they make the long trip to Weymouth.
