King's Lynn 2 Ashton Utd 1
2nd November 2013
King's Lynn Town bounced back from their midweek derby defeat at Grantham by coming from behind to beat Ashton United at The Walks.
Second-half goals from Ryan Fryatt and George Thomson saw the Linnets cancel out Kayde Choppin's first-half effort for the visitors.
It was an improved second-half performance from Lynn in a game where the quality of play was not helped by the blustery conditions.
Martin Pilkington was denied by a Fryatt intervention before Lynn fell behind in the 17th minutes following a neat half-volley from Kayde Coppin from Jay Gorton's cross.
Pilkington looked like doubling the Robins' lead shortly after, but Jason Lee and Alex Street managed to deny him.
Gorton then tried his luck from some 40 yards with a wind-assisted effort which went wide.
Lynn's best effort of a poor first half came just before the break when Greg Mills saw his shot hit the underside of the crossbar.
Whether it was manager Gary Setchell's half-time team talk, the substitutions, change of formation or just the fact that Lynn scored within 60 seconds of the restart, it was a much-improved second-half performance.
Fryatt pounced for the equaliser from three yards after Rob Duffy's initial header had been parried.
The winning goal came from substitute Thomson on 73 minutes when his strike from 25 yards was too much for keeper Paul Phillips who saw the ball squirm under his body.
