King’s Lynn Town will look to create their best run of form this season on Tuesday night when they head to Alfreton.

The Linnets are unbeaten in four games, in which they have picked up eight points from a possible 12 – replicating a run they had in October, not long after manager Adam Lakeland took over.

Lynn conceded five goals in that first four-match spell, but the current run has seen just two go past goalkeeper Paul Jones and his experienced regular centre-half trio of Kyle Callan-McFadden, Josh Coulson and Greg Taylor, flanked by Kian Ronan and Dylan Crowe.

“For me, they're three of the best centre halves in the league and having that consistency in your selection and getting them playing regularly together, will make a difference,” said Lakeland.

“We had a clean sheet here against Chester, clean sheet against Farsley (on Saturday), should have had a clean sheet at Gloucester but conceded late on and one at Brackley. That's two goals we've conceded in our last four games, two clean sheets in that and that gives you a chance in any game.

“If we're solid and we're organised and we defend well as a team, we have shown, albeit not against Farsley, that in the main we have got goals in us through open play and set plays. So that's got to be the foundation for us for the remainder of the season, that we're hard to beat, difficult to play against, don't concede many goals and that will give us a chance.”

The original trip to Alfreton was postponed 10 days ago because of a waterlogged pitch, so Lynn’s preparations are still fresh in the minds.

“Tough game,” said Lakeland. “A difficult place to go, going to be another physical contest. They're having a brilliant season, year after year, Alfreton under Billy (Heath) they've over-achieved. They had a good run in the cup this year and they are round about the play-offs in the league, so it's going to be a difficult game.

“But, as we saw on Tuesday night (when Lynn won at Brackley), you can beat anybody in this league on your day. We obviously are aware, we did a lot of prep for the Alfreton game, which got called off last Saturday. So we know exactly what type of game it's going to be and what we're going to face and we'll be ready to go and compete and hopefully we can get another good result.”
