Two from two as King’s Lynn Town open away account with win at Bishops Stortford
King's Lynn Town made it two wins out of two as they passed their first away test of the new campaign with a 3-1 win at Bishops Stortford.
Linnets boss Ian Culverhouse kept faith with the players who started the 2-0 home win over Gosport Borough on Saturday – and was perfectly rewarded.
Craig Parker scored for the second game in a row to put Lynn ahead, with Leon Mettam adding a second, this time Parker turning provider as he flicked on Ryan Hawkins' corner and Mettam slotted it home.
The hosts pulled one back before half-time, when Jason Williams' shot just evaded Linnets' keeper Alex Street.
But Lynn restored their two-goal cushion just two minutes into the second half. This time it was Michael Gash – who had two goals disallowed on the opening day – who struck, rising high to head home Michael Clunan's corner.
