Salisbury City 1 King's Lynn 4
24th April 2001
On Tuesday night, Lynn travelled to Salisbury and picked up a convincing 4-1 win. Spearing described it as his side's best display since he took over and said: "We were awesome.
"If it hadn't have been for their keeper we would of scored ten. We played the balls in all the right areas and were magnificent throughout.
"We played well in the first half, but I went into the break unhappy because we should have killed the game off."
Lynn continually ripped the Salisbury defence to shreds, with midfielder Paul Raynor outstanding on his return to the side.
The Linnets opened the scoring in the 31st minute when Hayes fired home in a crowded penalty area.
Salisbury levelled ten minutes later through Jimmy Smith, but Lynn restored their advantage when Kristian Jones converted Robinson's square ball.
Despite their dominance, Lynn had to wait until the 63rd minute before adding a third, when the pacey Jones out-stripped the home defence and squared the ball for Lyndon Rowland to net.
It was then left to substitute Jon Palmer to complete the scoring in the final minute.
Lynn: Martini, Dakin, Clark, Robinson, Fuff, Raynor, Anderson, Hayes, Jones (March 85), Rowland and Puttnam (Palmer 85). Sub not used: Wright.
