Rushall Olympic 3 King's Lynn Town 1|
Saturday 20th September
Lynn slumped to one win in six league outings as they went down 3-1 to Rushall, a repeat of last season's scoreline.
The first chance of note fell to the home side and Aaron Farrell, who was a constant threat to the Lynn defence throughout, collected a cross from former Linnet Zak Martin, dummied past Henry Eze to score.
Farrell had a further chance three minutes later but this time Lynn 'keeper Alex Street was able to save.
Lynn got back on level terms on 20 minutes when George Thomson shot was fumbled by the home goalkeeper and Jake Jones prodded the ball over the line.
Lynn had the opportunity to take the lead on 25 minutes when Rhys Thompson was penalised for a push on Jones but David Bell put his spot kick too close to keeper
Thomson had one further chance in what was a reasonably even first half but his lob went wide.
The Pics started the second half on the offensive and Eze did well to clear away a chance for Aaron Williams and at the other end on 62 minutes Jones
set up Thomson but his shot was blocked by the legs of Belford for a corner. The corner was cleared and on the counter a fast flowing move involving a number of players was finished clinically by Aaron Farrell to give the home side the lead.
Bell and Jones both went close for Lynn but in the last minute any hopes of a point were dashed when Williams slotted home after fine play by Martin had tested Street.

King's Lynn Town 1 Buxton 2|
Tuesday 16th September
Buxton went top of the league with a 2-1 win over Lynn.
Lynn had one enforced change to the anticipated line-up with Henry Eze missing a train connection and not arriving at the ground until 8pm.
When he did come on to the field it was not for the best of reasons as he replaced the injured Dan Quigley on 23 minutes.
There were further problems for Lynn in a scrappy, goalless first half with Sam Mulready suffering concussion and having to be replaced at half time.
Despite the set backs Lynn started the second half on the offensive with Steve Spriggs and Michael Frew both going close before
Ross Watson gave Lynn the lead on 49 minutes.
It was a lead that lastest just five minutes as Lynn fell asleep at the back to allow Buxton to equalise through Shaun Tuton.
The decider came on 69 minutes when Alex Street could only parry a cross into the path of Liam Hardy.
Lynn applied late pressure but the Bucks held on for victory.
Lynn: Street, Watson, Yong, Quigley (Eze 23), Fryatt, Bridges, Bell, Thomson, Frew, Mulready (Spriggs h/t), Jones. Subs: Eze, Spriggs, Stocker, Ward. Scorer: Watson
