King’s Lynn Town looking to build some Southern League Premier Division momentum
King's Lynn Town head across country aiming to ensure their only movement in the league table is upwards.
The Linnets sit 17th in the 24-team table having failed to fully turn their performances into points so far this season. However, back-to-back victories – one of which came in the Southern League Premier Division against highly-fancied Poole Toown – have given Gary Setchell's charges some extra confidence ahead of a trip to Worcestershire.
Lynn's boss admits one such player who will be travelling in high spirits is Lee Stevenson after he broke his scoring duck during Saturday's 4-1 home FA Cup second qualifying round victory over Wroxham.
The former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder was backed by his manager to find the net around 25 times this season during the summer. A brace last time out at The Walks has got the playmaker off the mark and Setchell expects that cutting edge to continue in the coming weeks.
'I'm happy he scored against Wroxham,' Lynn's boss told his club's official YouTube channel.

'He's a player who worries about things and thinks about things too much. So it's a little bit of a monkey off his back on Saturday he showed touches of his class.
'He showed what a good player he is. He has got a niggling groin problem, which is why we took him off, and if not he'd have probably gone on to get his hat-trick.'

Stevenson's double moved him alongside Kern Miller – expected to be fit despite limping off during the weekend's victory – Michael Clunan and Ryan Fryatt at the top of the club's goalscoring charts for the season. Lynn's opponents Redditch have also found goals hard to come by at times in the early stages of the campaign. They sit five places about Setchell's side having only lost once following relegation from National League North.
They did suffer a cup shock on Saturday though when they were dumped out of the competition by Hinckley AFC – a side that play three levels below them in the non-league pyramid.
