SATURDAY was another game where the conditions came out on top and made it very difficult to get into any real pattern of play. We did not help ourselves at times as we failed to keep the ball on the ground and get our shorter passing game together.
SATURDAY was another game where the conditions came out on top and made it very difficult to get into any real pattern of play. We did not help ourselves at times as we failed to keep the ball on the ground and get our shorter passing game together. We also decided to experiment on the technical side, and in the first half with the strong wind at our back we did not play enough football in the final third and therefore scoring opportunities were sparse.
King's Lynn were typically youthful, were full of movement and equipped with a very good work ethic. They took a deserved lead and went into half-time 1-0 up.
The second half was a similar affair to the first - lacking in any real pattern, without much football being played and with the ball spending far too much time off the pitch - our game did however improve and we equalised through a Lee Hunter free-kick. Chances after this were few and far between and in the end we finished with what was probably a fair result and a share of the points.
This result still managed to elevate us to the lofty heights of fourth in the table, as results around us went our way.
Tomorrow sees Harwich visit Walmer Road in a game where we will be seeking to avenge the defeat we suffered away last year in a game we should have won hands down. A win will obviously keep us in the hunt for fourth spot, which if we can pull off will be another great season for us at this level.
It is likely we will be without Nathan Stone, who suffered a recurrence of his hamstring problem but we should see the return of Jamie Stokeld.
Finally congratulations to Lowestoft for their win through to Wembley and an opportunity of a lifetime for any footballer to play on the hallowed turf.
We are very envious - who wouldn't be - but I wish them the best of luck for the big day and I am sure a number of us will be making the journey.
