King’s Lynn Town aiming to take Bulls by the horns in promotion bid

The tables may have turned on King's Lynn Town in recent weeks, but manager Ian Culverhouse doesn't appear to be in the mood for handing the title to Hereford – at least not without a fight.
When the teams clashed at The Walks at the end of January, Lynn won a thriller to reclaim top spot in the table. But since then, Hereford have just about clawed back their games in hand – and won all of them.
It leaves the Bulls on top, 10 points clear of Lynn with a game in hand – the title chase looks all but over, with the jostling for play-off positions to be contested by five teams.
Culverhouse isn't one to shout from the rooftops, but knows Saturday's game at Edgar Street is more than a Bulls' victory parade.
'It could be a real classic,' he told the club's official website.
'They are a great side and for the neutral their visit to us in January was an outstanding game played between two high quality sides which we nicked right at the end.
'I'm not surprised by Hereford and the season they are having. They are a big club where things went wrong a few years back, but they are now fighting their way back up the pyramid and I'm sure it will not be long before they are playing league football again.
'Having said that, we have our own challenges and targets more immediately and it's important that we get something from this game.
'We deserved a point at Tiverton (lost 1-0) but didn't bring it home so we now move onto this game looking for points.

'It's so very tight in and around us and there will be jostling and changing positions between now and the end of next month with points being gained and dropped by everyone.
'I understand we are taking a good following down there on Saturday and I would like to thank them in advance for their support on our travels this term.
'I appreciate it greatly, as do the players. I'm sure it will be a cracking atmosphere with a big crowd and two quality teams going at it.'
Culverhouse – whose team were without a game last weekend because of the winter weather conditions – is without suspended striker Leon Mettam and midfielder Cameron King, who is injured.
