Tuesday evening (kick-off: 7.45pm) sees our second home game of the season with the visit of King’s Lynn Town. The Linnets missed out on promotion via the play-offs from the Southern League in 2017-18 but made it via the super play-offs in 2018-19 beating Warrington 3-2 in the final having come second in Southern League Premier Central.
A previous excursion into Step 2 lasted just one season so Ian Culverhouse’s side will have been encouraged by their start to this campaign gaining six points from the first three gamesand sitting in the top three of the embryonic National League North table.
Kevin Wilkin reflected on Saints’ defeat at York City clearly identifying the positives from the performance and the need to find a greater goal threat. Looking ahead to Tuesday’s game he said: “King’s Lynn had a good result on Saturday so they will arrive with confidence high but we are back at home. If we apply ourselves as we did at York and can find that little bit of cutting edge that is probably missing at the moment then hopefully we will have enough to pick up a result on Tuesday.”
