King’s Lynn must follow up famous win with another three points

King's Lynn joint boss Kevin Boon insists title talk can stay on the back burner ahead of tonight's UCL Premier Division trip to Cogenhoe.

Lynn could go top for the first time since September with a win at Compton Park if leaders St Neots fail to win at St Ives after Town's 4-2 weekend victory ended their long unbeaten league run.

'Yes, its wide open now but I still maintain there will be plenty of twists and turns,' said Boon. 'I honestly believed that no matter what result we got at the weekend. They have a tough one at St Ives, but Cogenhoe will be a hard place to go.

'St Neots let us play football. That might not be the case in this game, but we have to pick up the three points. There can be no complacency,'

Striker Robbie Harris could start up front after Chris Bacon was preferred on Saturday, with Town's management having to also plan for the Saints' FA Vase fifth round return at The Walks this weekend.

'We went with Bacs for his power and strength over Robbie so we could take the game to them down the channels and exploit perhaps a lack of pace,' said Boon. 'It's hard on the lads who are on the bench but we are all a team together in that changing room. We may have to bring in one and two new players with Buster's (Chapman) blessing, but when you are winning games you don't tend to get those injuries. These boys would run through walls to play for King's Lynn.'

More than 900 travelling supporters swelled the ranks at Rowley Park and fellow joint boss Gary Setchell insists Town's fanbase can be a major factor over the title run-in.

'I've played in the Football League and clubs like Rushden and Kettering don't get the level of away support we can,' he said. 'It's a tribute to our fans. The singing at St Neots was superb and we've commented on it before.

'Cogenhoe is exactly the same as St Neots – when all said and done it's the same three points at stake. We've set a standard and now each big game that comes along we are raising it. We raised it at Wroxham, raised it at Beckenham, raised it at Norton and again at the weekend.'
