Gary Setchell is confident King's Lynn Town's play-off push will not run out of steam.

The Linnets surged into the top five for the first time this season by beating Bedworth United 3-0 on Saturday. That upward curve has caught many by surprise but Setchell is adamant his side can stick around at the top end of the Southern League Premier Division.

Lynn's boss said: 'After the start we had, if someone would have offered us this we'd have taken it.

'Apart from Conor (Marshall), we're injury free. We've got one or two niggles with Bridgo (player-coach David Bridges) but we're injury free.

'We're in good form, we've got momentum, we've got belief and we're getting stronger as a unit.

'Other teams are probably looking at us and thinking; 'They're having a little run and they'll fall away'. But I honestly believe if we can keep our best players fit and grind out results – like we did the other night when we turned a loss into a draw with a late goal (1-1 draw at Stratford, November 16) – and put the teams we should do to bed, we're going to have a good chance.

'We're now here for the long haul as it's nearly March. We've got two months left, we're in the hunt, and I guess the supporters and everyone are happy, as am I, with the way it's going because we're bang in there.'
