Ian Culverhouse is hoping Frome Town shed their inhibitions as King’s Lynn town look to make along journey worthwhile on Saturday.

The table-topping Linnets head to Somerset to face a Frome Town side who frustrated Culverhouse’s men back in August when they left The Walks with a point after a goalless draw.

But Lynn head west in good heart after last weekend’s 3-0 home win over Dorchester Town – coincidentally, the same team they beat, 2-0 away, before that early-season draw with Frome.

Culverhouse was delighted with the win, especially after his side had done so well at Kettering on New Year’s Day, with no reward.

“It was exactly what I was looking for,” he told the club’s official website. “I asked for a reaction to the previous week and I got one. To be honest it was a similar performance to the one at Kettering with the difference being this time we added the goals to the dominance and we ended up with a good win and a clean sheet.

“It was a well-deserved win in my opinion and there were pleasing performances all over the pitch. Metts (Leon Mettam) looked a little like his old self and I was pleased to see him back amongst the goals It’s now about carrying on these type of performances and trying to build a run of results heading through the month.”

Previous experience has prepared Culverhouse for a tough afternoon in Somerset.

“They were well organised on that day and frustrated us and our supporters I seem to remember” he said. “They were cautious in their approach, but being the home side this time I would expect the onus to be on them to have a go at us which should create an open game.

“Frome are 11th in the table and have a mixed record and I expect another real test of our ability and credentials on Saturday. It’s a long trip but we will be prepared as usual and will enter the game in a positive state of mind.”

Culverhouse has new signing Cameron Kong available today.

“I am pleased that Cameron King has joined the group as we look to push on with our ambitions,” he added. “He is a talented lad with a lot of energy and enthusiasm for the game and I know he is looking forward to getting started with the club. I felt we needed just a little freshen up as we begin this important stage of the season.”
