King's Lynn Town's mini Southern League revival was halted last night as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Biggleswade.

Gary Setchell's side showed plenty of endeavour for long periods but were undone by an excellent finish from Craig Daniel 18 minutes into the second half and a late second from home substitute George Bailey.

The Linnets went into the game with an unchanged starting line-up from Saturday with Dan Quigley sitting out his final game of a three-match suspension.

The visitors began the game well, knocking the ball around with plenty of confidence. An early chance saw Michael Clunan's snapshot well saved by Ian Brown following a delightful pass from Lee Stevenson.

Stevenson was at the heart of everything dangerous from Lynn and the attacking midfielder saw his lob from the edge of the box brilliantly turned over the woodwork by Brown.

Lynn should have taken the lead three minutes before the interval when Gary Mills hooked his effort over the bar after finding himself well placed in the penalty area.

The Linnets stayed on top at the start of the second period with half chances falling the way of both Clunan and Jacek Zielonka but neither were taken.

Lynn were duly punished for their lack of cutting edge when the hosts took the lead with their first effort on target in the 63rd minute.

An excellent through ball from Ian Rees sliced open the Lynn defence and Daniel ran through to fire under the body of Alex Street.

Lynn appeals for a penalty were waved away going into the final quarter before Daniel missed a golden opportunity to double Biggleswade's lead when more composure was required in front of the target.

Three minutes into stoppage time Daniel turn provider on the right to leave Bailey, who had only been on the field less than two minutes, with the easiest of tap-ins.
