Title boost for King’s Lynn Town as stuttering Coalville Town lose game in hand

King's Lynn Town's Evo-Stik Division One South title hopes took a massive leap last night when long-standing leaders Coalville Town suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Halesowen Town.
The result means that the Linnets, having drawn level with Coalville on points on Saturday, are now properly neck and neck with their rivals, who no longer have a game in hand.
In fact, Coalville, despite still leading the table with a substantially better goal difference, could almost now be rated the underdogs, having won only one of their last nine games in a devastating loss of form.
Last night was their first home defeat of the season – and makes Tuesday's visit from the Linnets look like a virtual title decider.
Manager Gary Setchell, who was at the game last night, will be quick to point out, however, that the Linnets must first negotiate a trip to Halesowen on Saturday, having seen first hand how tough they proved for Coalville.
