Striker Rob Duffy paid tribute to Gary Setchell for easing him into his King’s Lynn Town career after delivering a match-winning display on his debut.
The Linnets frontman came off the bench to make himself an instant Linnets hero by netting inside 30 seconds during Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Droylsden. After suffering a serious ankle injury more than a year ago at Lincoln City, the 30-year-old admits his goal filled him with huge relief following such a long spell on the sidelines.
Duffy said: “It’s matches that I need. But not too much too soon really. Setch has been brilliant and he hasn’t rushed me at all.
“I appreciate his patience and his time on me and hopefully now I can progress it, game by game, until I can get as close to match fitness as I can. I had a few niggles in the warm-up, which put a little voice in my head. But once I’m warm it’s fine. It’s given me a lot of confidence that I came off the bench and got through 20 minutes ok and it was a massive win for us.”
Duffy, a former Wales Under-21 international, was released by Lincoln in April and signed for Lynn in August.
