King's Lynn 0 Atherstone United 0
13th April 199
In appalling conditions Linnets hit the post twice, but despite their best efforts the weather won on Tuesday.
Rain and sleet fell in the day to make the pitch greasy and there was steady rain and a biting wind during the match.
Mills limped off with a calf injury on the half-hour and new midfielder Andy Simpson came on for his debut.
Dave Robinson mis-hit a back pass for Chuck Martini's biggest scare of the night while Robinson's opposite number Scott Blair slipped to let in Micky Nuttell, but his shot curled just past the post.
Jeremy Goss grazed the post from the edge of the box and Puttnarn's screamer hit the inside of the post.
Linnets were denied another penalty when Atherstone's Kim Green appeared to handle but the referee waved play on.
