Tuesday 14th January King’s Lynn Town 2 Wroxham 1
Two goals from defender Tom Ward, the winner coming in injury time, saved Lynn’s blushes as they struggled to overcome the level 4 strugglers.
Lynn fielded a strong line-up with four changes from the team that drew Cirencester with the experience of Sam Gaughran and Lee Stevenson on the bench should it be required.
The opening twenty minutes suggested that Lynn were more than a match for the Yachtsmen as they camped in the visitors’ half with Toby Hilliard glancing a Kurtis Revan cross over the woodwork on 13 minutes and then Hilliard miskicked when well placed inside the box.
Wroxham took a shock lead from a Humphries free kick five minutes before the break following a Dan Quigley foul on the edge of the box.
Lynn managed the goal they had looked ike scoring all evening for minutes after the restart when Ward hammered home a Michael Clunan corner at the far post.
Another Humphries free kick almost restored Wroxham’s lead on 76 minutes but it went just over while Sam Warburton went close for Lynn as the game looked likely to go into extra time. Then with te game in injury time a Stevenson corner resulted in a scramble in the box and Ward was on hand to drill home.
Lynn: Street, Revan (Gaughran 77), Yong, Quigley, Ward, Zielonka, Clunan, McWilliams, Hilliard, Edge (Stevenson 57), Warburton. Subs not used: Setchell, McQuaid, Pearson
