King's Lynn 2 Kempston 0
7th January 2012
KING'S Lynn Town boss Gary Setchell is refusing to get carried away after seeing his side gain the initiative in this season's UCL title race.
Long Buckby's draw against Cogenhoe ensured that the title is now back in Lynn's hands after goals from Robbie Harris and Danny Beaumont saw off a gutsy Kempston outfit at The Walks.
But as the current table stands, Lynn will still have to beat Long Buckby on their travels in February and Setchell said: "We are not going to get carried away with that.
"We are not going to go in the dressing room and start popping champagne corks by any stretch of the imagination.
"Long Buckby and ourselves will lose points this season. There's tricky games in the league, as we have found out this year when we had our collars felt by Sleaford.
"Long Buckby have only won one of their last five games so they are not invincible, while I feel we're a good side and will get better."
On Lynn's latest three points, Setchell said: "The back four and Danny White kept us in the game in the first half and I thought Kempston were good value for at least a 0-0 draw at half-time.
"The ball didn't stick up front. It was coming straight back at us and was killing the team.
"The second half was more of a King's Lynn-type performance and it started with a great ball from Jamie (Thurlbourne) and a good finish from Danny (Beaumont).
"I thought Ryan Fryatt was outstanding today. He was composed, defended well and he put his foot on the ball.
"At 18, I think we've got a real good player on our hands."
The Linnets chief also praised the debut of Ashley Deeney, who made a solid start to his Lynn career after completing his transfer from St Neots on Thursday night.
Deeney, 20, joined the Saints on loan from Luton in September.
A Luton Town scholar, he was given a professional contract in May having had spells on loan during his three-year scholarship at Bedford Town, Arlesey Town and Leighton Town.
Setchell said: "Ashley is decent. He's strong and very quick and you saw the gas he has in the second half when he knocked it down the line and put a very good ball in.
"He's composed and I think he could be a very good signing for us. He's the type of player we were trying to bring in to replace Pat Bexfield."
