Positivity is they key thing King's Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell wants to feel from everyone at The Walks today.

The back-to-back promoted Linnets sit mid-table in the Evo-Stik Premier Division following a more than decent start to life at Step Three of the non-league ladder.

However, three consecutive home defeats in all competitions have led to strong criticism of the Linnets in some quarters, something Setchell feels is down to unrealistic expectations.

He said: 'If we do really well this season, we could trouble the top six. If we do really poorly we could trouble the bottom six.

'We had a decent start and now the goal posts have been moved, but not by me. I've always said a top-half finish in a very difficult league would be a fantastic effort.

'I just want there to be an upbeat feeling, not a negative one. We've lost a couple of games at home, we'll probably lose a couple more. We'll win a few at home and away.

'We've got good players, a good chairman and fantastic support. We're sitting mid-table so for me, my glass if definitely half full, not half empty right now.'
