Man-mountain Henry Eze is determined to rack up clean sheets with King's Lynn Town.

The giant centre-back helped his new club beat Nantwich Town 2-1 on Saturday following the completion of his move from Kettering on the morning of the game. And the 25-year-old wants to help Lynn tighten up at the back even more as they prepare to make the trip to Ilkeston for their latest Evo-Stik Premier Division fixture this evening.

Eze said: 'I kept a lot of clean sheets with Kettering. My duty as a defender first is to keep a clean sheet. I will get on the scoresheet as well, I like to score goals. But my main target is trying to win the league. I'm so happy to have a game again (tonight) to settle down properly. If we can get a win again it would be a nice start for me.'

The Nigerian cleared off his own goal-line and made a string of outstanding interceptions and tackles during an impressive debut. It was a display which delighted his boss Gary Setchell.

Lynn's boss said: 'You can see what Henry brings to the table. He's an all-action defender. He lives on the edge a little bit. But we're going to have to live with that. I was very happy with him and (centre-back partner) Ross (Watson).'

Setchell added: 'We've moved on, Robert's moved on, he's a lovely lad. I wish him all the best, apart from tonight.'
