Dan Quigley should be back in action for King's Lynn Town soon after explaining his non-appearance for the recent home match with Dorchester to boss Gary Setchell.

The controversial midfielder, who was shown the door for a similar no-show in 2015, only to return to the fold a year later, has insisted he remains committed to the club despite seemingly leaving his manager in the lurch before the final game before Christmas.

Quigley won't be featuring in the Boxing Day clash at Kettering Town – but there's a chance he will be back in action when the Linnets play their first match of 2017 against St Ives at The Walks on January 2.

A statement on Lynn's official Twitter feed read: 'Some news on Dan Quigley made by Gary Setchell. Granted Christmas off for family issues, but remains fully committed to the club.

'After meeting with Setch, Quigs has made it clear he has no desire to leave the football club for another club.'

Newly-signed centre half Tom Ward, who joined the Linnets from St Neots Town last week, is likely to be involved at Latimer Park as Setchell's team attempt to put the frustrating 3-3 draw with Dorchester behind them.

The Linnets were 3-1 up with 15 minutes remaining before letting two points slip, but they remain unbeaten in six league matches, with three wins and three draws to their name.
