Gary Setchell keen for King’s Lynn Town to avoid FA Cup wobbles at home to lower-tier Lancaster City

Gary Setchell wants King's Lynn Town to provide Lancaster City with no early encouragement of pulling off an FA Cup shock this afternoon.
The Linnets stunned higher-level Hednesford Town while their third qualifying round opponents upset FC United to set up today's clash at The Walks. And with Evo-Stik Premier Division Lynn plying their trade one tier up the non-league ladder, Setchell is keen for his side to snuff out Lancaster's hopes of achieving another giantkilling.
'If my players show the desire, hunger and work-rate that they did against Hednesford then Lancaster are going to be in for a very, very tough afternoon,' said Lynn's boss.
'If we play like we did against Trafford at home and last week to a point at home to Witton, we could give Lancaster an opening. If you do go 1-0 down and give clubs something to hang on to, afternoons can get very, very difficult at The Walks because the crowd gets restless, I get restless and my players get jittery.
'It's very important that we start on the front foot and let Lancaster know that we're at home, why we play at a higher level and get our fans on our side and make it very difficult for them.'
