King’s Lynn Town’s long unbeaten run has given manager Adam Lakeland a vision of where he wants his team to be next season.

Just a couple of months ago there were some who wanted Lakeland on the bus out of The Walks after they lost 4-0 at home to his former team, Curzon Ashton.

Since then, though, Lynn have gone 11 games unbeaten, including holding the National League North’s top two – Tamworth and Scunthorpe – to draws in their last two games.

Lakeland likes what he has seen from his players.

“That's got to become the norm for us,” he said after Good Friday’s goalless draw at Scunthorpe.

“This is what we want. We want to be picking up points regularly and we want to be competing at the opposite end of the division.

“This year it's been about staying up, getting points whilst trying to develop a mentality and a confidence and a belief, and I think we're doing that.

“We still need to keep going. We've got five games left to go now, 15 points to play for. I want us to try and keep this run going as long as we can. The players do, more importantly, but we've got to believe that we can come to places like this and get results, just like when we played Tamworth last week; despite going behind, we believed that we could still get a result, so we kept pushing until the end and we managed to get something out of it.

“So we're on a fantastic run and we just want to try and keep that going as long as we can.”

Scarborough head to The Walks on Monday and, sitting 13th in the table, look to have little to play for. Lynn, on the other hand, are on the cusp of safety and could do with a few more results from other games going their way, as they did on Friday.

“It's about us,” said Lakeland. “I've said that all along – we’ve just got to focus on ourselves and on our performances on things that we can control. The players have been brilliant, absolutely brilliant, but we still need to get points and that's what we'll continue to try and do.

“Obviously Monday, the next game, I’m sure we'll have another good crowd. It'll be tough. Scarborough is never an easy team to play against, and I think again it shows how much progress we've made because I know we went up there on a Tuesday night we were poor, got beat 2-0. I think that wins took them into the play-offs and we were rooted in the bottom four.

“We're probably a lot closer to them now than we were when we got beat by them in November.”
