King's Lynn Town 1 Belper Town 0|
Tuesday 28th October
Lynn overcame bottom club Belper by a single goal although it was a deserved victory and the margin could easily have been greater.
Visiting 'keeper James Martin produced a series of saves that could have engineered a half time lead for the visitors had
Ian Ross converted a 31st minute penalty after Jackson Ramm had felled Robert Stevenson. The former Boston United midfielder probably only had himself
to blame for hitting the post when he complicated the spot kick by stalling his run up.
On 63 minutes Lynn had a penalty of their own after Ramm had been fouled by on-loan defender Liam Goulding. who was red-carded as last man.
George Thomson took the kick but once gain Martin saved.
Four minutes later, after the introduction of Sam Mulready and debutant Gregg Smith, Thomson made amends for his earlier failure with his seventh goal in
four games when he completed a move created by the two substitutes.
The visitors ended the game with nine men after substitute Aaron Cole picked up two bookings for dissent in 30 seconds.
Lynn: Street, Ramm, Watson, Eze, Yong, Spriggs (Stocker 87), Bridges (Mulready 66), Quigley, Jones, Thomson, Frew (Smith 66). Unused subs: Fryatt, Pearson. Booked: Smith. Goal: Thomson (67)
