Super Street excels in vital away win for King’s Lynn Town at Witton Albion

Dan Quigley's header ended King's Lynn Town's wait to win an Evo-Stik Premier Division match, a sequence that had lasted eight matches.
But Alex Street was their real match-winner. The Linnets' goalkeeper was a one-man barrier between Witton and a victory, his saves proving as decisive as his teammate's thumping header.
Twice in the second period he reacted brilliantly to make a double-save, most notably when he followed an instinctive block with a boot to deny Joe Shaw with a stretching save to stop Jamie Rainford's attempt from the rebound. He was brave later to divert substitute Michael Simpson's shot to safety after spilling Jake Parker's initial drive from distance.
Lynn claimed the game's only goal on 71 minutes, Quigley timing a run from midfield to crash in an unstoppable header from replacement Jacek Zielonka's cross. It was their only attempt of the second period.
Not that Lynn will care, for this maximum points haul is their first since beating Marine at the end of January and moves them to eight points above the relegation zone.
They played the contest's final quarter of an hour with 10 men too following Sam Mulready's dismissal for allegedly throwing a punch at an opponent.
Witton will rue missed chances, Joe Shaw spurning the clearest. Street then arched his back to tip over John Shaw's header. Alex Tichiner and Luke Clark hit the woodwork but Albion could not find a way past the visitors' stern resistance – and Street's brilliance.
