|Worksop 2 Lynn 3|
The feat of scoring two goals in the first 17 minutes against King’s Lynn at Central Avenue had, one fears, an adverse effect on Worksop Town. Having done so, they seemed to pause and ask themselves, "Can we do this sort of thing against the likes of Ron Capewell, Keith Bannister, Bill Whittaker, Jimmy Hartnett, Johnny Downes and Co?". And while they were deciding, the Linnets settled about the task of overhauling the arrears, It was one in which they succeeded.
It was something like poetic justice when Lynn reduced the arrears in the 42nd minute. Wilson had ventured from goal and was in no position to deal with the situation when a throw-clear by Capewell set going a quick thrust on the Lynn left and Hartnett lobbed the ball over the head of the advancing goalkeeper. In the 50th minute came the equaliser - headed by Edwards from a corner by the limping Murray, and in the 65th minute the Lynn winner. Edwards again finding the mark by slipping through a static Worksop defence, whose members were apparently under the impression, though wrongly, that he was offside.
