Boon wants more from hot-shot Lynn

Kevin Boon is a man with a conundrum: his team have scored 15 goals in their last three games – and still he isn't happy.

The King's Lynn Town joint manager watched his side hammer six past Whitton in the FA Cup on Saturday, but admitted there was still plenty of work for him and Gary Setchell to do with the squad.

Lynn entertain Boston Town tonight when they return to United Counties League Premier Division action, and while Boon exonerated his front men from blame, he wants an improvement around the rest.

'It's not that we are being sloppy, it is more a case of indiscipline I think,' he said. 'It's not tight enough. Every time we go out and want to keep a clean sheet and we have decided to let a goal in for some reason. It's about discipline and helping each other out.

'I know we've scored goals, but we have not played well in three games.

'We got out of jail because Whitton could have been ahead had it not been for keeper Alex Street. I won't blame our two strikers and our wingers, they've been doing fine, but I have to ask questions of the rest.'

Paul Cousins, who has a broken toe, played an hour on saturday, as did Jordan Yong, both coming off early in preparation for tonight's clash. But Boon admits he is reluctant to make changes.
