King's Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell hailed his side's togetherness after they came from behind at Barwell yesterday to pick up more precious points.

The Linnets fought back from 2-0 down to draw 3-3 at home to Stocksbridge Park Steels on Saturday. However, they conceded a late equaliser and Setchell insisted only a victory would do in Leicestershire. And it's one they claimed thanks to Dan Jacob's brace and George Thomson's penalty in the second half.

'I don't know how many times I have to say it about this set of players,' said Setchell.

'Whether we win, lose or draw there's an unbelievable team spirit in that dressing room. Would I have taken four points from the two games? Yeah, I would have done. Again, we started tentatively, and we grew into the game.

'It's not easy to win away from home in this league and Barwell are a hardened Step Three side. But I thought we were different class second-half hitting them on the break and that's what we can do.'

Keeper Danny Gay made a penalty save inside the first five minutes and a fine stop at 2-1 to help back-to-back promoted Lynn secure their second win in four matches.

Setchell said: 'Danny's a very experienced goalkeeper and he's proved his worth. He saved a penalty early on and made a save at the end and his concentration levels were good.'
