King's Lynn could go back top of National League North with victory over Peterborough Sports at The Walks

King’s Lynn Town could leap to the top of the National League North tomorrow if they can complete their second double of the season against Peterborough Sports at The Walks.

With both Brackley Town and Darlington not in league action this weekend, Tommy Widdrington’s side can return to the summit with three points against the Turbines.

But Lynn won’t be taking anything for granted against a Sports outfit who continue to defy all the odds in what is their first season at this level.

Managed by Jimmy Dean, the tiny city side find themselves sitting just outside the play-off places despite operating under a transfer embargo because of a debt to HMRC.

Even a run of injuries which has forced players to play out of position hasn’t stopped them in their tracks and they have already recorded wins on the road at former Football League outfits Hereford and Southport in what has been a memorable few months at Step 2.

Forward Jordan Nicholson, full-back Isaiah Bazeley and key midfielder Connor Kennedy are all expected to return against Lynn after missing the 2-1 home victory over Southport last Saturday.

French midfielder Diadier Camara, who has played professionally in the lower divisions of his homeland and in Italy, impressed in the absence of Kennedy.

The encounter will also see former Linnets Michael Gash, Ryan Fryatt and Nathan Fox all return to their old hunting ground.

Lynn will be hoping that a mini injury crisis of their own has begun to abate.

Although forward Jordan Ponticelli made a welcome return during the goalless affair at Blyth Spartans, but the Linnets still found themselves without striker Gold Omotayo, defender Olly Scott, as well as key midfielders Michael Clunan and Cameron Hargreaves.

Both Clunan and Hargreaves have been outstanding in the middle of the park for Lynn this campaign while the impressive Scott netted in successive games against Boston United over the festive period before missing the trip to Croft Park.

Josh Barrett’s last-gasp wonder strike proved the difference when Lynn won 2-1 at Lincoln Road back in August.
