A trip to Stockport saw another heavy defeat for King's Lynn Town. In it has been said this season that a number of defeats have been by a single goal or the that the score line was flattering to the opposition as the Linnets were their equal of for at least half of the game.
This was not so at Edgeley Park, the Hatters were simply the better team. There might have been some comfort when the teams lined up at the start as County were without leading scorer Paddy Madden and had John Rooney on the bench - but unlike Lynn, County have strength in depth
Lynn had four defenders unavailable - Kyle Callan-McFadden, Ross Barrows, Tyler Denton and Baris Altintop with only three substitutes named.
It was just a matter of time before County scored and it was to their credit that Lynn managed to hold out until the 34th minute when a Ryan Rydel free kick found Jordan Keane who fired an angled half-volley into the far corner from 12 yards.
Lynn replied in the following minute with their first effort toward goal, but Michael Clunan's shot failed to trouble the home keeper as it drifted wide
Just as it looked as if Lynn would go into the break just the one goal down they lost possession in the Stockport half allowing Ryan Croasdale to power forward and set up Rydel to score.
It only took three minutes after the restart for Stockport to score a third. Ethan Coleman lost possession to Will Collar who set up Scott Quigley to shoot. His effort was saved by Paul Jones but the ball fell to Ollie Crankshaw who headed home.
Such was the home side's domination, Lynn's first corner of the game did not arrive until the 55th minute.
Goal number four arrived on 77 minutes, substitute Ben Barclay scoring from the edge of the area after Lynn had failed to clear a free kick and it was another substitute, Connor Jennings - back after getting the all-clear after treatment for cancer, who completed the scoring through a crowded penalty area in time added on.
