King’s Lynn Town return to league action on Saturday – and maybe not a minute too soon.

The Linnets were dumped out of the FA Trophy a week ago when they suffered a surprise 1-0 home defeat by Mildenhall Town. With the FA Cup now a distant memory, it leaves Lynn fighting on the most important front of all – league.

Lynn are second in the table on goal difference behind Slough Town. Chesham United are the visitors to The Walks and with the leaders on FA Cup duty, Lynn could go top. A point behind Lynn are Hereford - also on cup duty – and Weymouth, who are at Hitchin.

Lynn’s visitors – who beat Great Yarmouth 2-0 in the FA Cup in September – are 14th in the table and were beaten home and away by the Linnets last season.

However, they are unbeaten in their last five league games, with one victory and four draws.

A week ago they progressed in the FA trophy, beating Hayes & Yeading United 3-0, with on-loan striker Joe Iaciofano scoring a hat-trick.
