King’s Lynn set to be stronger for visit of Corby

King's Lynn Town will be back to picking from a near full strength squad for tonight's home league match with S&L Corby at The Walks (7.45pm).

Joint manager Kevin Boon said some players would be on county duty, but several senior players who were rested for Saturday's League Cup defeat at St Neots will be back.

'To be fair, on Saturday we did play a different side; we took five reserve players who all did exceptionally well, but we have to put out a full first-team squad,' said Boon.

With a demanding schedule, Boon added he and colleague Gary Setchell were focusing attention game by game.

'The league is top priority, but we have two FA Vase semi-finals coming up, then we have the final of the Norfolk Senior Cup. At the end of the day we are trying to focus on this game by game.

'Some of the players have now had 45 games under their belts this season and there might be some physical weariness, but when you are in four competitions, players want the shirt. There's a lot of competition, everyone wants to play.

'Players who don't get a shirt – you can see their disappointment.'

Boon is enjoying sharing the managership with Setchell.

He said: 'He's a great lad. He loves football and is passionate about it. He brings that bit extra, having played in the league and having had professional experience.

'He brings that little bit more into the changing room, especially at half-time.'
