Adam Lakeland has urged his team to give home fans the win they deserve when King’s Lynn Town face Farsley Celtic this weekend.

The Linnets are marginally more successful on their travels – not an unheard of phenomenon when a struggling team finds there is more pressure when playing at home.

They have won three of their 16 home league games – the third worst record the division – with 0-94 points per game won. Their travels have brought them five wins in 17 games, the most recent the excellent midweek win at Brackley Town. It has earned them 1.18 PPG and is the 13th best in the table.

Lynn have now won consecutive games - both away - for the first time this season, but Lakeland knows those home stats have to improve if he is to keep Lynn from the drop.

“It will be good to get back to The Walks - we owe our supporters a really big home performance and hopefully going into it off the back of back-to-back wins on the road there will be a few people coming and supporting the team on Saturday,” he said.

“The supporters (at Brackley) were fantastic – good numbers travelled across here and for us to give them three points on the road again, we need to give them three points at home because we’ve seen on numerous occasions but certainly tonight, if we put in performances like that where we are fully committed, they will bet behind us and hopefully we will do the same on Saturday and we can give them another big performance.”

Lakeland knows Farsley Celtic well – he was manager there for four years, winning the Northern Premier League title in 2018-19 before joining Curzon Ashton in October 2021.

The visitors are 14th in the table and avoided a hat-trick of league defeats when they beat Blyth Spartans on Tuesday, thanks to an injury-time goal.

There will be other results to look out for on Saturday – Rushall (20th) are at Peterborough Sports (17th), Banbury (19th) host South Shields (ninth) and Southport (18th) face visiting Hereford (11th)
