Gary Setchell believes Chorley's visit to The Walks will capture the imagination of the area's football fans.

King's Lynn Town welcome the Evo-Stik Premier Division league leaders – managed by ex-Premier League player Garry Flitcroft and his assistant, former Blackburn Rovers team-mate Matt Jansen – to Norfolk this afternoon. And Lynn's manager admits he can't wait to face the side he is certain will go on to lift the championship.

Setchell said: 'I'm really looking forward to it. We're now getting down to the last third of the season and there's a lot of matches that will be considered as 'six-pointers' for both teams, this is one of them.

'We've got a lot of big matches coming up and we're happy to be a part of them. I'm hoping for a four-figure crowd, like we had against Coalville and Sheffield last season and FC United this. These are the type of games that should capture the imagination.

'They have two former Premier League players in charge, their team is flying and we've got a chance of getting in the play-offs. Regardless of today's result I think they will go on to win the league. They're the stand-out team and they've still got to play a lot of sides in the bottom eight between now and the end of the season.'

Chorley are two points clear of Skelmersdale United, having played two games less. Lynn, sixth, are two points off the top five.
