The Linnets will look to end a frustrating month on a high when they travel to Stourbridge in first round qualifying of the FA Trophy (3pm) – but have been handed a double injury blow ahead of the trip.

Lynn boss Gary Setchell will be without midfielder Lee Stevenson for around a month, who has suffered a recurrence of his knee injury, with joint top scorer and club captain Leon Mettam also suffering an ankle injury.

Lee Smith does return to the squad after injury, with Setchell telling Lynn's website: 'We are a strong group, We have to stick together and go to Stourbridge, roll our sleeves up and get in the trenches and hope we can get a result and book a place in Monday's draw.'

Similar to Lynn, Stourbridge are in mid-table at step three, struggling for consistency in the Northern Premier Division.

Setchell's side are yet to taste victory this month, with a 2-1 defeat at home to Hitchin on Tuesday leaving the Linnets with three draws and two defeats in the Southern Premier this month, alongside exits from the FA Cup and League Cup.
