Linnets prepare for a busy week of games

King's Lynn are facing a busy week of league and cup ties, starting today at home to Northampton Spencer, kick-off 3pm.

The visitors are currently in tenth place in the United Counties League Premier Division, six places below the fourth-placed Linnets.

But there is no room for complacency at The Walks, as joint manager Kevin Boon stressed.

He said: 'We are not going to take anything lightly. They have had some good results this season – they are a tough side, a good footballing side.

'Our main aim is to settle into the game and get three points. In recent weeks they have had some good results – it's not going to be easy.

'King's Lynn is a big place to come to and people raise their game. We have got to be on our toes and keep our minds focused on the game.'

But it's not only about today's performance, as Boon pointed out. 'It's critical to get three points and get momentum going for this week's games. We have got a very busy week.'

The key game is next Saturday's FA Vase clash with Norton and Stockton in Middlesbrough.

'On Tuesday we've got Wroxham in the Norfolk Senior Cup,' said Boon. 'We have got one or two injury niggles. We run a small squad, so youngsters from the reserves will play against Wroxham.

'No disrespect to Wroxham, but sometimes you've got to look after your own issues. Our biggest game is next Saturday in the FA Vase.'

Lynn defender Brady Stone will not feature. He has to sit out the next month or so to clear up niggling ankle, foot and calf injuries.

Defender Ross Watson will return to the squad after being ineligible for the midweek postponed Norfolk Senior Cup tie at Wroxham.

Striker Chris Bacon is available after being ineligible for last weekend's FA Vase win.

And midfielder Danny White, who missed the 10-1 new year win over Raunds with a virus and played for part of last weekend's FA Vase tie, will be involved in today's game.

Boon was keen to praise the groundsman's efforts in preparing The Walks, saying: 'The ground is in first-class condition after the rain.

'We have got a great drainage system and well done to groundsman Maurice Bunting. He has done a first-class job this year.'
