HAVING not played for 17 days, Kirkley looked a bit rusty at the start of Wednesday's match against a Kings Lynn reserves side that included players who had a combined total of 75 first team games between them so far this season.

The home side took the lead on 20 minutes when Osborne, who had already been denied by an angled save from Woodcock, tore down the left wing and hit a slide rule pass across to be netted by Dwyer.

K&P came into the game in the final 20 minutes of the half with good moves by Matt Taunton and Liam Harvey-Cooper and on 41 minutes they equalised with a great solo effort by Chris Henderson, who picked up a ball 25 yards out and chipped the keeper Murray from 15 yards for a deserved equaliser.

A tremendous come back by K&P saw them dominate the play in the second half. They could have scored through Harvey-Cooper who blasted a quick fire shot that was saved by the keeper's legs, followed by Justin Fox's curling free kick and an Ian Dawson shot that was inches wide.

Midfielder Rob Horton, who has been out of the team for two years with a serious knee injury, set up the winner with a second goal for flying winger Henderson who cut between keeper Murray and defender Chapman and squeezed the ball into the net with a minute left of a good encounter.
