Cambridge City 1 King's Lynn Town 3
Wednesday 20th April
Lynn's mini-goal drought ended at St Ives on 14 minutes when John Sands stole the ball from Adam Murray on the edge of the City penalty area
and made no mistake, making amends for a first minute chance which drifted wide from six yards out.
The home side, playing their fourth game in nine days, created chances of their own with Danny Kelly seeing his shot deflected on to the post.
Lynn went further ahead on 28 minutes, Lee Smith crossing for Lee Stevenson to fire home.
City reduced the arrears on 39 minutes when a Jon Kaye cross was spilt by Alex Street and James Hall poked home.
The scoring was completed in the last minute of the first half when Stevenson scored his sixteenth goal of the season from a free kick after Smith had been fouled
The second half was a scrappy affair on a difficult pitch with chances at a premium, the best falling to the home side
with Street saving from Charlie Brown with his legs.

Slough Town 2 King's Lynn Town 0
Saturday 16th April
Lynn fell to two Lee Barney goals to give Slough their second win in ten games whilst Lynn have now gone
302 minutes without scoring.
Lynn made one change from Tuesday's defeat with Liam Hurst replacing Toby Hilliard in the starting line-up.
Slough had the first chance of the game with Lewis Putman latching on to Dan Hicks' cross to ripple the side netting.
John Sands then tested the home 'keeper Mark Scott with a header from Michael Clunan's free kick.
It was Sands again, picking up a pass from Lee Smith on 12 minutes, whose shot hit the upright.
Liam Hurst saw his 28th minute effort cleared off the line by Warren Harris having beaten Scott with a lob.
The deadlock was broken on the half hour when Matt Castellan was caught out of position and Ryan Hope set up Lee Barney who slotted past Street.
Sands tried a shot from some 30 yards but his effort sailed out of the ground and Lee Stevenson, on the end of Clunan's free kick, shot wide as the first half came to a close.
The second half was very much a scrappy end-of-season affair with few chances of note.
Hurst had a long range effort that curled wide of the mark and Sands had a effort saved by the feet of Scott.
With play one minute into time added on a low Putman cross was met by Barney who easily turned the ball past Street.
Slough: Scott, Fraser, Dhillon, Hollis, Hicks, Hope, Putman, Webb, Barney, Gokmen, Harris (Parsons 64). Unused subs: Grant, Raju. Booked: Fraser. Scorer: Barney 31, 90+2

King's Lynn Town 0 Hungerford 1
Tuesday 11th April
A goal in the ninth minute of injury time kept Hungerford's play-off chances alive at The Walks.
Lynn made two changes from the team that drew with Weymouth with Lee Smith and Sam Mulready replacing Jack Friend and David Bridges.
A local power cut, caused by underground electricity cable, was the highlight of a dull first half
which saw just two efforts on goal and they came in the final five minutes. John Sands, on the end of Michael Clunan's free kick shot wide on 41 minutes
and Hungerford's Gary Horgan headed wide at the back post shortly afterwards.
Prior to the 44th minute blackout, which lasted some ten minutes, there was little action with the opening period seeing the ball spending far too much time in the air.
Lynn had their best effort of the game when Lee Stevenson was on the end of a good build up on 52 minutes but he scuffed his shot giving
Paul Strudley an easy save.
Sam Mulready was next to go close as Lynn began to attack more but he just failed to get his head to Stevenson's cross.
Mulready was again in action for all the wrong reasons when he was shown a straight red for a late challenge on Scott Rees.
Chances came and went for both teams in a better second half with the ball finally finding the net from close range when Ian Herring stabbed home from a corner.
Lynn: Street, R Fryatt, Yong, Castellan, Miller, Smith, Clunan, Stevenson (L Fryatt 88), Mulready, Sands (Zielonka 81), Hilliard (Hurst 72). Subs: Zielonka, Hurst, L.Fryatt, Friend, Edge. Booked: Hilliard. Sent off: Mulready.
Hungerford: Strudley, Horgan, Day, Jones, Tyler, Clark (Jarvis 74), Herring, Rees, Preen, Draycott, Brown (Goodger 80). Subs not used: John, Rusby. Booked: Day, Tyler. Goal: Herring (90+8)
