Linnets must keep eyes on the prize
King's Lynn Town joint boss Gary Setchell admits the club cannot afford any slip-ups ahead of their United Counties League Premier Division match at Blackstones this evening.
The Linnets must take all three points if they are to keep up the pressure on table-toppers St Neots and second-placed Newport Pagnell but Setchell insists his squad will be up for the challenge.
'Every game seems like a cup final at the moment because St Neots and Newport Pagnell are both going so well,' said Setchell, whose side overcame Gorleston in the FA Vase on Saturday. 'We know we cannot afford any slip-ups as it's just not going to be possible for us to lose five or six games this season and expect to be promoted.'
King's Lynn hammered Blackstones when the two sides met at The Walks last month but Setchell admitted the scoreline flattered his side and he expects another tough encounter.
'We beat them 5-1 but to be honest we weren't four goals better than them,' he said. 'We want to try and set the tempo because we know in this league that if you give teams any encouragement they can become very difficult to break down.'
