King's Lynn 1 Weymouth 0
11th March 2000
Dave Puttnam marked his comeback from injury with his ninth goal of the season as King’s Lynn recorded their fifth win in six games.
Puttnam rifled home a free kick on the edge of the six-yard box after Weymouth reserve keeper Danny Claxton had caught a Mark Robinson back pass.

The victory was no more than the sprightly Linnets deserved and pleased manager Gary Mills.
“I was delighted with another three points. We played well and deserved the win,” reflected Mills.

Chances were at a premium in the opening stages with Glen Fuff just failing to connect with a Puttnam cross.
But Lynn were rewarded for their lively start when Robinson touched Lyndon Rowland’s cross back to his keeper who caught the pass. Puttnam then stepped up to fire home from Tony Spearing’s touch past a posse of players from both sides on a crowded goalline.
Weymouth rarely threatened the home goal, but
Chuck Martini had to be at his athletic best five
minutes before the break when he dived full length to tip away Steve Tate’s header which seemed destined for the bottom corner.

Lee Gibson and Puttnam both saw shots from
distance go close before the latter clipped the bar with a cross-cum-shot.

Martini again rescued his side by palming away an effort from David Laws and then produced another good stop in the dying throes to stop a full-blooded volley from Robinson.
