King's Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell admits he's relieved his team are on the road this afternoon.

The Linnets have suffered back-to-back defeats in front of their own fans in the last seven days, shipping nine goals in the process.

But today the promoted outfit are at Chorley and Setchell is delighted to be away from the pressure cooker that is the club's own Walks ground.

Lynn's boss said: 'For me, it's a terrific game for us today.

'I'd much rather be away against a side who are near the top of the league than home against a team near the bottom of the league. Because we're feeling the pressure at home a little bit obviously – we've just conceded nine goals in two games.

'So it's a great game for us. It's sink or swim time. We need to go there and put in a mighty performance, like I know we can do, and if we play well we can beat Chorley, no two ways about it. But if we play poorly we could get another good hiding.'

Setchell's men, ninth in the Evo-Stik Premier Division, head to Lancashire to face an outfit that sit third.
