King's Lynn Town 3 Ilkeston 0|
Tuesday 21st October
Lynn recorded their biggest league win of the season thanks to a hat-trick from George Thomson, two of the goals coming from the penalty spot in the first half.
Luke Shaw fouled Jake Jones on 12 minutes to give the Linnets an early lead. Henry Eze with a header that was saved and Steve Spriggs shooting wide
Michael Frew had a header cleared off the line on 23 minutes following Sprigg's corner.
Spriggs then had an effort hit the post and on 29 minutes Lynn were awarded a second penalty when Frew was fouled in the area for Thomson to score
his second spot kick of the night.
Che Adams tried to reply for the Robins but his effort was cleared from the line by Eze.
Robins, with the wind behind them, did try to come back into the game with Kieran Wallace trying a long range effort early on.
On 64 minutes Michael Frew should have made the game safe on 64 minutes when with only the keeper to beat he somehow shot wide.
With twelve minutes remaining Thomson, on the end of a Jones crossfield pass, smashed the ball past Jordan Smith in the Ilkeston goal.
The victory set Lynn up nicely for Saturday's crunch match against AFC Fylde whose manager was watching in the main stand.
One negative point was Michael Frew's fifth booking of the season which means he should miss the game against Curzon Ashton.

King's Lynn Town 3 Marine 1|
Saturday 18th October
Lynn staged a most unlikely comeback to claim the points against Marine. Down to ten men on 15 minutes when Ryan Fryatt was dismissed for a
foul on the lively Christian Langos they went behind from the resultant penalty and spent the remainder of the half looking disorganised as Marine bossed the play with Lynn nreliant on Alex Street to
deny Langos and Andy Fowler who had sufficient chances to put the score out of reach.|
Then with two minutes of the half remaining Lynn equalised in a move that came from nothing. Neat play between Bell and Frew found Thomson in the box who
shot across goal; Mariners' keeper Matt Cooper could not hold onto the ball which fell kindly to Steve Spriggs to tap in at the far post from two yards.
Lynn started the second half in style catching Marine cold as George Thomson set up Spriggs who outpaced his marker to slot the ball past Cooper to give Lynn the lead.
Thomson missed a great chance to make it 3-1 but made up for it later when on 80 minutes he cooly finished a move from Bell to celebrate his 100th appearance for the club.
Lynn: Street, Ramm, Yong, Eze, Fryatt, Spriggs (Quigley 65), Bell, Bridges, Frew (Stocker 87), Thomson, Jones (Watson 24). Subs: Watson, Quigley, Stocker, Colman.

Booked: Short. Scorer: Fowler (pen) 16
Saffrom Walden Town completed the double over Lynn Reserves with a 3-1 win.
After an uneventful first half which saw few scoring chances the "Bloods" took the league on the hour with a free kick from Charlie Gray which went in off the undeerside of the bar.
Craig Calver made it two on 78 minutes but Lynn pulled one back through Liam Fryatt two minutes later following a corner.
Shaun Avis completed the scoring for the home side late into injury time.
Lynn Reserves: Pearson, Spitlehouse (Frohawk), Ward, Mcleish, Daw (Clithero), Biles (McQuaid), White, L Fryatt, Nelson, Stannard, Palmer. Unused sub: Burch.
Booked: Fryatt, Pearson, White. Scorer: L Fryatt.
Lynn moved up to seventh spot in the league thanks to Jordan Yong's 83rd minute goal, his first of the season, in a dour affair with the Gingerbeads that produced
just four shots that were on target.
King's Lynn Town 1 Grantham Town 0|
Tuesday 14th October
Both teams had periods when they held the upper hand with Lynn being prominent at each end of the first half with Sam Mulready seeing
his header clawed away by 'keeper Dan Haystead and then Henry Eze headed wide from another dead ball opportunity.
Chances came and went for both sides but efforts were invariably high, wide or blocked as defences stayed on top.
Grantham had their best chance on 69 minutes when Michael Towey split the Lynn defence to set up Ben Fairclough but his attempted lob
went narrowly over with Alex Street beaten.
The all important goal came with seven minutes remaining when David Bell's pass found Yong whose cross hit Phil Watt and came back to him and his second
effort squeezed inside the post.
Grantham almost equalised in injury time when near post corner was flicked on by Towey, but Eze deprived Tom Batchelor at the far post.
Lynn: Street, Ramm, Fryatt, Eze, Yong, Spriggs (Watson, 85), Thomson (Quigley, 74), Bridges, Bell, Frew, Mulready (Jones, 34). Unused subs: Stocker, Pearson. Booked: Ramm, Bridges. Scorer: Yong (84)
