King’s Lynn Town hoping to make it nine unbeaten

King's Lynn Town will be aiming to build on a late slice of good fortune in their previous match when they travel to the Midlands to take on Redditch this afternoon.

The Linnets looked set for second successive draw at The Walks on Monday when they headed into injury time on level pegging with in-form visitors St Ives. But a cross-cum-shot from substitute Jacek Zielonka that somehow found the back of the net changed the whole complexion of the afternoon, with what looked like being a frustrating stalemate transformed into 2-1 success.

Gary Setchell's men remain 15 points adrift of Merthyr Town, the side currently occupying the fourth and final play-off position, but that will soon change if they make full use of the games in hand they have on virtually all the sides above them in the table.

For the time being however it's just a case of ticking the games off one by one and attempting to stretch an impressive unbeaten league run that has now reached eight matches.

Lynn have won four and drawn four since a 2-1 defeat at Hitchin way back on October 25 and have only lost once in 13 in all competition, to National League outfit Gateshead in the FA Trophy.
