Blyth Spartans 3 King's Lynn Town 2 |
Saturday 22nd November
Lynn are still looking for their first away win since the opening day of the season but once again showed
their never-say-die attitude with a comeback attempt that so nearly earned them a point.
Lynn were without the suspended Henry Eze and had Sam Mulready and David Bell out injured.
A goal down at half time they found themselves 3-0 adrift with twenty minutes remaining but a free kick from George Thomson, his 19th goal of the season,
and a strike from Gregg Smith four minutes later made for a nail-biting finish.
Blyth deserved their 1-0 half-time lead their goal coming on twelve minutes when the impressive Jarrett Rivers beat Jordan Yong to cross the ball which was deflected into the path of Dan Maguire who headed past Alex Street.
Lynn grew into the game and began to create chances with Steve Spriggs, set up by George Thomson, saw his effort saved by the home 'keeper Peter Jeffries.
Yong then saw his shot saved at the expense of a corner just before half time.
Ten minutes into the second half Spartans doubled their lead through a Robbie Dale penalty after Maguire had been adjudged to have been fouled by Alex Street.
On 69 minutes the home side made it 3-0 when Ross Watson's poor touch allowed Rivers to score.
Two minutes later Thomson pulled a goal back and then Gregg Smith found space in the Spartans area to make it 3-2.
Lynn tried to find the equaliser but they couldn't turn their pressure into goals and Spartans hung on for their second home league win of the season.

King's Lynn Town 3 Stourbridge 1|
Saturday 15th November
Lynn progressed to Monday's FA Trophy draw thanks to two late goals.
Lynn started brightly but the first real chance did not arrive until 20 minutes when Jackson Ramm's centre found the head of Gregg Smith but his effort was
comfortable saved by Dean Coleman.
Lynn took the lead just before the half hour when good work by Frew and Ramm resulted in George Thomson chipping home.
Five minutes later Thomson had the chance to double the lead but his effort hit the angle of the post and bar.
Soon after David Bell's free kick forced a fine save from Coleman.
The Glassboy's first real chance of the game came on 38 minutes when Jordan Fitzpatrick slotted home.
The goal encouraged the Glassboys and further chances fell to Bowerman and Fitzpatrick in the minutes before the break.
The second half was a pretty even affair in terms of chances and it looked as if the match would go to a replay but then on 89 minutes Lynn turned defence into attack with a four
against two break which saw David Bell pass the ball for Gregg Smith to score from three yards.
Two minutes later visiting 'keeper Coleman brought down Jake Jones and Thomson took the resulting spot kick which was saved but he was on hand to score from the rebound.
