King's Lynn 5 Cogenhoe 3
18th February 2012
LINNETS manager Gary Setchell had mixed emotions after seeing his side book their place in the semi-finals of the UCL League cup.
Defender Ross Watson's double, a 30-yard howitzer from Danny White, a trademark header from Jack Defty and an own goal saw Lynn, whose defence was breached three times, through to the last four.
Setchell said: "It was a mixed bag at times today. Some of our forward play was fantastic while some of our defending left a lot to be desired.
"We've got to be reasonably happy today, although we conceded one or two more chances than I would have liked and we've picked up a couple of injuries."
Both sides had further chances to add to their tallies in an entertaining tie which saw Lynn hold a 3-1 lead going into the interval.
The biggest downside for the Linnets were injuries to Stuart Wall and Jack Defty, who are both rated as doubtful for Tuesday night's game at Thrapston.
Wall suffered a slight groin strain and limped off early in the tie before goal machine Defty was substituted in the second half after feeling a twinge in his troublesome knee.
